Before I left I took some shots for the Winter edition of the Good Life Magazine. We had such a nice afternoon shooting, preparing, cooking & eating!!
On this very wet day today, I’ve been thinking about how much I have been loving all the outdoor activities we have been doing lately to soak up this yummy spring weather. The other week, Josh and I went strawberry picking at a local farm for our “E” date – EATING – and we ate many strawberries… (Remember when I told you about how we are doing A-Z Dates) We are slow at getting into this, but it’s such a fun thing to do.
Last weekend a group of friends got together and had our own little degustation. There were 8 of us (4 couples), with each couple preparing 2 courses each with a matching wine. So, throughout the night we had 8 courses, by the end of the night I can definitely say, it is the most full my tummy has ever been! We had such a great night, I thought I would share some of my pics.
Thanks to Emma & Jesse for hosting at their house and the beautiful table spread!
