st. patty’s day ideas!

Top o’ the morning, all!

With St. Patrick’s Day {and its collaborative foodie celebration} right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite recipes with y’all – both from a food & cocktail perspective. Some of them gear towards traditional, while some others are a bit of a…twist…but regardless, they are are equally delicious! I’d love to know – how do you like to celebrate this holiday,  if at all?

lately: the new year

Even with a husband feeling slightly under the weather for this New Year’s Eve, we still managed to have a wonderful time! An extensive cocktail supply, bubbly champagne and delicious bites were on the evening’s agenda; it made for the perfect celebration. Hope you enjoyed your celebration, also!

The hubs and I had an absolutely wonderful time at my family’s home for the Christmas holiday. Full of love, laughter, good wine and good food, it was all that I could have hoped for..and then some! Here’s a glimpse into our time – enjoy!
