Happy New Year!

 We ended the year with a relaxing Christmas at home and made some delicious meals.  Pictured:  Sparkling wine dressed up for NYE, Christmas Eve Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Biscuits (Ad Hoc at Home), French Toast (Joy of Cooking) with honey, pears and blackberries, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes (Food & Wine), and an Almond Pear Tart from my new Bouchon Bakery cookbook!

Our talented friend Suzanne hand knitted our baby boy-to-be this beautiful bunting  (complete with a hole for use with the car seat buckle).  We are so touched!  I can't get over the hood and the buttons.  So sweet.   That is some serious knitting!

Adorable Baby Shower Brunch

Its been way too long since I posted!  A couple of weeks ago, several of my lovely friends threw us an adorable shower at Old Town Social.   Delicious comfort food, gorgeous flowers, crafty paper goods, football for the boys and even a signature cocktail in honor of baby!  On the menu were biscuit and egg sandwiches, hash brown casserole, mac and cheese, beignets and the restaurant's house made sausage.  Yum.  The tables were covered in lots of little pumpkins for our pumpkin.  Could not have been cuter.

Happy Weekend

Am sure just about everyone is ready to have this week over with.  Hang in there NY and NJ friends!  Best wishes for lights coming on and hot showers for all.  
I am looking forward to co-hosting a friend's baby shower tomorrow.  In the down time created by the storm, I did some crafting this week and can't wait to surprise her with a cute table (and cookies on sticks!).   xo

Fall = Apples+Pumpkins+Doughnuts!

We spent a great fall weekend in Cleveland, visiting my friend Katherine and her very cute family.  On the agenda- ballet class, apple picking, pumpkin picking, apple cider doughnut eating and a football game!

I'm back!

We've just returned from a beautiful week of touring and eating in Bordeaux, San Sebastian and Biarritz, with a quick stop in London on the way home.  I am in full croissant withdrawal.
Can't wait to share photos, hopefully will be able to get them up soon.  I can't believe its September already and am sad to see the summer go, but happy to be enjoying this not too hot, perfectly sunny weather we are having right now!
