German Chocolate Cake

Delightful elixir!

1/2 oz. Absolut Citron
1/2 oz. Frangelico
1 Lemon wedge
Sugar Rim

I've been craving this and had to pressure
some friends to join me. It's a shot that
tastes like German Chocolate Cake. Seriously!
The lemon wedge comes at the end.

Listening to Res

I'll admit, I sing this song very loud in the car.

Wedding Bands

We finished these wedding bands recently and love the photos by the lucky & lovely recipients. Their garden is amazing and to shoot pictures with their rings inside?!

Cravings: Cheese & Wine

So this is what I crave for dinner sometimes after a hard day working. Give me stinky cheese & a good Pinot -pretty please. I love the different textures in cheese and the saltiness of salami and prosciutto. Wash it down with some wine and I'm in heaven! We've been adding olives and sometimes almonds or figs to the mix.
Enjoy your weekend!!

Bound Necklace

She's like a delicate pair of handcuffs. Is that possible? Of course it is! She's strong, feminine and pretty damn sexy!

Listening to Jill Scott

Jill Scott again and again...

Paper Therapy: Elsa Mora

Elsa Mora creates amazing works of art. This is one of her many beautiful paper sculptures. It's about emotional growth and introspection. After months of cutting, this relief was finished. You can find more of her creations here and here.

Emergency Trip Needed!

Destination: Central Oregon- Kahneeta

Beautiful Oasis.

The geographical landscapes are stunning driving
to Kahneeta. The desert reminds me
of my home town.

This guy was heading for us! He's handsome.
Something tells me he likes to make
cars pull over.
We stayed in Tee pees and enjoyed the
views with friends.

I love that the kiddos are easily entertained!

Battery charged.

Enjoy your weekend!

San Francisco Diaries Part I

6:04 am flight to SFO.
I'm the only person in the world that didn't know San Francisco is always a bit chilly. The buildings seemed to touch the clouds with all the fog in the sky. This walk through Yerba Buena Gardens was gorgeous.
The Villa Florence was amazing! They were all smiles,
accommodating and a great location. Love!

Lots chaos at Mascone Center, surprisingly
our set-up was so smooth.

Bite to eat at Buca di Beppo.

You know you wanted a close up of this paint
by number painting...

Check out this huge plate of Baked Rigatoni with dollops of ricotta and lots of mozzarella. This made great leftovers for days!

This shot is like food porn.
