FEED Supper, #feedsupper World Food Program, WFP

When a coworker told me about FEED Supper, I knew I had to participate.  While I had lofty goals of hosting a dinner party, I didn’t have much time so I ended up hosting a dinner for two… i.e. a typically night, but amped up with a purpose.  It was nice to not only put a little more effort into a weeknight meal for just the two of us, but the best part was really the conversations we had focused… Read more »

With the hint of Fall in the air, I can’t help but dream of escaping away for a weekend glamping trip – enjoying s’mores + a cocktail, by a campfire with friends.  But since my schedule wont allow for that at the moment, why not bring the glamping to me, right?

Birthday Cake Cocktail Recipe, Pinnacle Vodka, sage+sparkle, #pinnaclecocktailclub

It seems that there are quite a few Virgo’s in my life.  Starting with Labor Day weekend, which was my loves birthday, followed by celebrating my Mom’s birthday this past weekend and pretty much 1-2 birthdays a week, till the end of the month – as such, I thought it was appropriate I learned how to whip up a festive cocktail. Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being in California – spending time with my Mom for her birthday…. Read more »

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Keep reading for the recipe…
