DSC_1913

It's officially SUMMER 2013! To celebrate, let's have drinks by the pool... I've already told you all about Julibox, the cocktail of the month club that my hubs and I are obsessed with. This month they sent us a liquor I've never heard of called Esprit de JUNE. It's literally a liquor made from certain wine grape blossoms that bloom only a few days a year in June. Uh huh.

A Rustic Modern Thanksgiving.

Sketch42 Thanksgiving

Welcome to Thanksgiving 2012. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. It's really the best. Non-denominational, all encompassing, it has a great message and its fun. Every year, I shoot my table on actual Thanksgiving day. That's annoying... I have to stop cooking to take photos and write a blog post, plus real life means I'm seating ten + people on my table, and that I must use a … [Read more...]
