Blog. April 15th, 2014 Daniel and I just got back from Washington, DC.


We drove up for our friends’ wedding celebration, but stayed to explore a little since neither of us had been since high school. We hit some museums downtown and visited the zoo. (By the way the Smithsonian National Zoo has nothing on the North Carolina Zoo!) The famous cherry blossoms happened to be in full bloom, so I wanted to walk down to the waterfront “real quick” to see them in all their glory.

April 3rd, 2014. A Beautiful Mess. Hey, friends! I'm here to share my new favorite happy hour recipe! It's fresh, herbal-y, and citrus-y. Mojitos were my first favorite cocktail, and I still love them, but finding new combinations is my current obsession. I'm thinking about planting an herb garden on my porch this weekend. Have any of you done this? Needed: White rum, club soda, fresh basil, fresh mint, fresh raspberries, two limes, basil raspberry simple syrup (recipe below). Raspberry Basil Simple Syrup, makes two cups. 1 cup sugar 1 cup water5-10 raspberries 3-6 basil leaves In a small pot, combine all ingredients and bring to a simmer. Allow your syrup to cool completely in the pot, then strain it into a glass or jar.

You can keep this syrup covered for two weeks or longer in the refrigerator. Raspberry Basil Mojito, serves one. 2 ounces white rum1 ounce simple syrupjuice of one lime5 fresh mint leaves, chopped5 fresh basil leaves, choppedfresh raspberries club soda Cheers!

This absolutely breathtaking venue is where Jose Villa recently held his workshop, and every detail of this exquisite home is absolutely perfect. We were so excited when Heather Waraksa sent us Lee and Cristiano’s intimate wedding at Villa Cetinale because there have been so few events held there in the past, and it all just seems like a dream. Words from the Bride about their beautiful day: We met abroad, as you do, in the South of France. It was a total set-up by mutual friends. A few things made our wedding special. I guess we take it for granted, but there was obviously a very international vibe to our wedding.

I didn’t want a standard Tuscan ‘wedding factory’ wedding. Lee and Cristiano succeeded in creating an intimate gathering for their closest friends and family. Imaginative Bloom. Miss Indie. A Field Journal. Pinkrain.
