After the delicious salmon and guacamole the night before I needed some way to use more of that trusty avocado topping. Though I’ve been trying to consume less bread and pasta in my diet (more plain starches!) I couldn’t resist the idea of toasted French bread with fresh raw salmon…
Back when I was studying abroad in France I used to walk past a salon every day on my way to school. The window displays were full of these luxurious beaded necklaces, the same kinds as those that some of the North African women wore on market days.
One day in June I looked in the mirror and thought, this is the beginning of letting myself go.
This necklace was a labor of love.
