You guys! This has totally changed the way we drink iced tea at our house! I’m so excited to be sharing with you how to make this Lavender Simple Syrup which is featured in the summer section of our book ‘Life in Season‘.
*I have the most delicious apple hazelnut cocktail to share with you today!*
I’ve always known what a privilege is to call the Willamette Valley home. I mean, this place is truly beautiful. Rolling hills of farmland and vineyards with a river winding it’s way through the landscape. And I’m not saying that we really need anyone from the ‘outside’ confirming what we already know.
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I can definitely see how this can be true when it comes to particular words in the English language. In that case though, beauty would be in the ear of the hearer right?
Some words just make me absolutely cringe. I would type them out but my fingers literally REFUSE to click those keys.
Other words are like music to my ears. Like the word ‘Decor’ and the word ‘Steals’. And when you put them together it’s like a beautiful melody!
Whenever I even see the word ‘cocktail’ I immediately want to go put on a flouncy outfit, swipe some bright red lipstick over my lips and slip my feet into stiletto heels.
There is just something about that word that makes you feel like you should be in an episode of ‘Mad Men’, don’t you think?
Or maybe flinging bottles behind the bar with Tom Cruise. 😉
But, just because my feet are more likely to be in flip-flops than stilettos and being stuck behind a bar with Tom Cruise would probably mean I’d have to be up past 9 pm doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a little bit of fancy being added to my everyday!
