As anticipated, yesterday was a lovely day!
I hosted an intimate engagement luncheon in honor of my friend Noemie
and we celebrated her happiness over good food and a bit of bubbly.
There were lots of wedding details revealed and squeals of delight!
Little A. was so excited to be part of the party too and even got asked the BIG question… Will you be the ring bearer? How sweet & what an honor! I just know he’ll love every moment of it. He loves being included in all of the fun. Like helping me make these savory scones & soup.
He was never too far away and just loved playing with little bunches of thyme!
The season of crisp, juicy, flavorful vegetables is upon us. The market is lined with cucumbers, peppers, corn, tomatoes…just tons of goodness and I really wanted to incorporate lots of fresh veggies into our meal, so I thought a gazpacho would be a perfect way to do that.
Look at all that color!
So simple & so delicious. I love dinners just like this!
Cheers to good meals,
good times &
the best of company!
