Thankful For: Family


Because we all need family to keep us grounded and humble.  My momma constantly reminding me that I can achieve anything with hard work.  My brother lets me vent about breakups, weird co-worker and client stories.  My sister is a wealth of knowledge about all the girlie-bits I don't understand.  And then, the munchkins.

Thankful For: Trader Joe's

First off, shame on you if you don't know what this is.  Second...they are amazing.  But, somehow....


despite your best efforts...you are incapable of looking like an adult via your receipt.  Three bottles of wine, vanilla tea, dark chocolate blueberries and fresh basil.  What?!?!  I'm either a six-year-old with ADD, or a wine-o with an affinity for flavored fruits and nuts.
Either way, this is neither a complete meal, nor part of a balanced breakfast.  Whatevs!!  Out in under $50!!

Intern Appropriate


I started a new internship last week.  I get to intern with a fabulous interior designer (site, here).  Her clients are amazing, her staff is incredible, and I feel so energized being surrounded by so many intelligent, passionate women.
My only problem - I've been wearing jeans to work (almost exclusively) for the past 4 years.

Whiskey is a Food


This is not for the faint of heart...first two ingredients - butter and whiskey.  Let me re-phrase that -
THE FIRST TWO INGREDIENTS ARE BUTTER AND WHISKEY!


Indeed.  I started with this recipe (photos also stolen, since the time change has screwed with my photograph taking sessions recently).  Highly modified, but started none the less.  I also used Maker's Mark instead.  Cheaper, bourbon-y-ier (yes, a word.), and so good.

Craftsmanship




Often times, luxury goods is simply a title for overpriced wares.  The quality and the care have been omitted, while the price inflates.  This is not that.

My Mantle


Hol.i.days!


I've been lighting my Christmas candles pretty much non-stop for the past week.  Yeah..I jumped the gun for sure.  And now, the santa-ana-weather has got me missing my summer fun.
