hey there summer time friends! 
hope everyone is having a sun-filled-beauty of a season so far.
in line with that thought, 
i've got a little shout-out in a great article 
about how to make a summer to covet 

she featured my share our name print as something that makes her happy. 
well, that sure is what it's all about, right!? 

happy, happy summer everyone. 
love seems to be in everything that shines 
and almost everything is shining right now 
so go and soak it up.

aaahhhh. we had a beautiful and relaxing little trip 
to maryland this past weekend and quite literally 
a trip down memory lane as seen below...

below is the dock my husband played on when he was a kid. 
it was nice visiting this spot while growing our own little bean.

one of the many nettle jellyfish in the brackish water.

we didn't catch much but ate some blue crabs, cherrystone clams 
and raw oysters and got plenty of sun and down-time.
sometimes the shortest trips are just what you need to recharge.

i am so excited and in love with this amazing organic farm and historic inn!

los poblanos in new mexico is now high atop my list of places to adventure to –
AND (how exciting!) their farm shop will soon be on my list of stockists!

enjoy the photos below and if you're intrigued 
go and check out their site for some much more...

hey friends!
wow. all i can say is, lucky me. 
the other day i had a business meeting 
that went something like this...

the amazing and lovely phoebe of phoebe's pure foods 
had double dutch over for lunch while we talked about a new venture 
all about good food, friends, fashion and fun.

we started with simple syrup spritzers –
{strawberry mint: recipe to be found via phoebe}

and then munched on seeded crackers with radish butter 
and rustic breads with sweet strawberry butter. 
{radish butter? yes. it's crazy fresh and delicious. it's butter with crunch!}

i had some tea in one of her many beautiful tea cups...

with a little bit of rosemary honey from a local farm

and we talked for hours as i sipped her asparagus soup 
and ate my many pieces of bread smeared with the strawberry butter

we also got to taste test her two types of lemon curd 
and some of her new sweet dessert recipes with strawberry mousse.
oh, it was just so fantastic. if this is work i don't ever want to quit!

i can't wait to share what we've come up with for the future –
stay tuned...
