It's A Wonderful NIght...

...You Gotta' Take it From Me

I had a great night, which was an end to a equally great day (and what is shaping up to be a most wonderful week as well) And rather than sitting around worried...

when will the other shoe drop?

I figured I'd have a group of my favorite people over to relax, enjoy...and celebrate just a little bit. The weather has been warming up so very much...and it was time to turn on the tunes, and chill on the porch AZ style. We did this by eating an entire bowl of guacamole and chips and two entire plates of fresh veggies (because there's nothing like veggies dipped in guac. you got to try it!)








...All this was followed by toasting with lemon meringue martinis (except for the small boy...he got fizzy lemonade) and the ceremonial first lighting of the candle-lier...and what I expect will only be the beginning of many times this summer (sorry for the blurriness)

sigh.

Vintage linens, outdoor dishes, twinkle lights and candles, the fire pit, and all the special summertime meals...

oh, I am so ready for this.



Thank you, thank you all...for making this a most amazing week!

Lemon Meringue Martinis

1 part lemon vodka
1 part vanilla vodka
1 T of lemonade concentrate
1 T powdered sugar
top up with Silk soy cream (I like it better than dairy...it's creamier)
pour this all over ice in a shaker...shake it up...pour it out and enjoy!
(these are supposed to be sweet, so adjust the sugar accordingly)

Have an amazing weekend everyone...
