I’ve been noticing a lot of black and white coming thru my Instagram and Facebook feed lately. Anybody else notice this too? It’s definitely a trend, and something I think we are going to see a lot more of in the coming months, especially in the fall, in fashion, home decor, and weddings (of course)!! When it comes to a wedding, I think that black and white is timeless, elegant, glamorous, and just plain fabulous! Perfect for any season. Add a touch [...]
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever.
Have you noticed that smoothies are everywhere? Everybody’s doing it! They come in green, purple, pink, and even blue! It all depends on the fruits and vegetables you use. I’ve tried a fair few, especially since we got a new Vitamix last fall, but I’ve had trouble finding a recipe that I really love.

If it wasn’t before, it is now.) When I say fancified, I mean that the recipe [...]
Each year, Pantone announces a color of the year and I think they have hit a home run with Radiant Orchid this year. I do have to admit something embarrassing. For the first couple of weeks after finding out what the color of the year was, I kept thinking and referring to it as raging orchid. I thought, wow, this orchid has got some serious anger management issues. Alexandra finally corrected me and pointed out it was radiant orchid. Oh. Much better. So, if [...]
We have a tendency to eat a lot of eggs at our house. Why? Because they’re yummy, you can do a lot of things with them, they’re relatively easy to prepare, and you usually have a dozen or two hanging around the refrigerator. My husband, having gotten over his allergy to them (yes, it is possible to heal some food allergies), has become kind of obsessed with eggs. This garden egg skillet is one of those recipes that came about out of necessity. [...]
