Spring cocktails are happiness in a glass. There is absolutely nothing like the first sip of a yummy cocktail on the patio after a long winter, and I have just the recipe for such a special occasion. Now, it's important to know, whenever I plan on serving a cocktail I make sure it only has a few ingredients - because who wants to sit in the kitchen mixing all night while your friends are enjoying themselves on your dream cocktail + patio evening? Well this little bubbly sipper is so easy you could do it in your sleep (or after a few perhaps), but they are fun and festive enough to make the evening feel special. Tip: the elderberry maple syrup from Runamok Maple is what really makes this spritzer shine.
It never fails. The minute February rolls around I start to crave some serious vitamin D like nobody's business. Yes, even me, the certified snow queen needs an escape to the warm weather in the depths of winter. I just like to remember what it feels like to wear flip flops again, to not have ten layers on at all times and to twirl around in a dress again. It's really the little things.
You know how Oprah always tells you to put things out into the universe so they are attracted back to you? Well universe, I want this house on Nantucket. That doesn't seem to be asking too much, now does it? As I've mentioned before, I love real estate. And dreamy real estate over looking the Atlantic Ocean in my favorite little town of 'Sconset on the sweetest island (that just so happens to be outfitted by all things Nantucket Looms) might be as good as it gets if you ask me. Well, I got to decorate it for Christmas during a shoot for the fabulous ladies at Nantucket Looms (they are my fav) and call it my job, and I thought I would share it with you. Welcome to my (dream) home.
