Happy Tuesday All!
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending some very dear friends’ wedding in beautiful Calistoga, California. Calistoga is a little city in the greater “wine country” of California and it is absolutely gorgeous. The little town is so cute and quaint, filled with mom and pop shops, delicious restaurants, and as luck would have it, a farmer’s market right outside our door! One of my hubby’s favorite things is peanut brittle and we found some amazing peanut brittle from Ellene! Ellene’s Handmade Peanut Brittle is thin, light, crunchy, sweet, and…SALTY! Well, we got the sea salt brittle and all I can say is it was gone before we walked the two blocks back to the hotel!
The wedding was perfect. The setting was a fantastically beautiful home with an expansive bright green yard. The decor was lovely, with bright pink peonies (also carried by the bridesmaids) and burlap runners adorning the tables. Music was provided by Brian London of Ocean Royal, who not only played great tunes for the ceremony, but also led a jam session in the bus on the way back home! So much fun!
The day was perfect…it was also HOT. Like 106 degrees hot! But the bride and groom provided everyone with fans to help cool us off, as well as a bar stocked with cold beers and cocktails. The lemon drops went down a liiiitle too quickly in 100+ degree temperatures though!
We had such an amazing time celebrating our friends! So much fun in fact, that this was our breakfast the next day!
My entire 21+ life I have tried to like bloody mary’s. I wish I liked them so badly. I just don’t. So I’m the baby with the champagne
Congratulations Jeff & Carrie!!!
