A Weekend Getaway

I have been terrible about posting here the last few months, but I want to get back into it, for myself if nothing else! I love having this blog to look back on and see what we did and share with family and friends. That said, we've been pretty busy lately and the holidays are always full of fun, so I plan to get back on here ...

Weekend Update (blizzard, grooming, food, weaving)

It started snowing last night and hasn't stopped since.  It's supposed to get even worse, so we're bundling up inside today and watching the Superbowl from home (although to be honest I don't have much interest in this year's Superbowl).

It is a beautiful resort with lots to do (golf, spa, tennis, near wineries, ...

Our Rehearsal Dinner at Farmstead

Continuing with this week's wedding theme, I wanted to share our "rehearsal" dinner photos with you all, if you don't mind.

We're ...

Roasted Acorn Squash for Fall

Did you eat squash growing up? I've had butternut squash, but when Dan brought home a whole acorn squash I wasn't quite sure what to do with it. Until I saw this beautiful dish on Pinterest via Edible Perspective. It just looked so good and, quite importantly, relatively simple. I already had a lot of the ingredients - and ...

Friday 5

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? I want to see Gone Girl and do brunch, but otherwise just chill. Here are some links to enjoy till Monday: Ciao bella! I cannot wait to go to back to Italy, and these photos at Hither & Thither are not helping my wanderlust. The temps are dipping and this sounds ...
