I wanted my Eves to have an official ‘coming out’ party so Noor and I set a meet-and-greet tea last night at her shop. The weather was lovely and Eve got to meet a few of our friends and family members. And somehow the event turned into an Eve treasure hunt. It was fun and a great way to end this frantic month!

Listen to Comme Ci Comme Ca by Zaz:

i baked my usual-and i must say quite renowned-chocolate chip cookies. i also made some less unhealthy oatmeal ones. and to counterbalance the diet, noor brought a bushel of red apples (and according to her, it's what eve would have served)
