So I leave for China (OMG!!!!) in 36 hours. One would assume I would be packing right now. But it seems I'm inclined to do everything but pack. In my kitchen jars and lids are sterilized and ready for chow chow.
While the chow chow drains on the counter awaiting spices and cooking.
Homemade chicken stock is simmering on the stove.
And I've been arranging my new latte bowls on the window seal...
And setting the table for our dinner party tonight...and still not packing.


  1. I'm so enjoying these photos of your home, Laura. Looks like things are beginning to come together. Your courtyard is such a wonderful space--it seems very European to me. Have a safe and exciting trip to China; and if Chris needs any help with Margot, please have him give me a call. Keep us posted about your oriental adventures!
