Celebrating Summer

Dreaming of walking the luxurious beaches of baja watching sunset.s-

I hope this post finds everyone safe and that you’re staying sane in such tenuous times. Summer has officially started and celebrations began at midnight since, July  1st is my birthday. But, the entire day has been extremely trying to say the least ….. hour after hour of hard work. So, dinner was delivered from my favorite Chinese restaurant to share with family and friends. I didn’t have time to bake a cake or pie, but will hopefully get into the kitchen when the work load lightens at Heath

Lately, I’ve been on a Sangria kick sipping this seasonal drink each evening. A delightful  punch that consist of red wine {Spanish Rioja}, sliced fruit, and every now to boost the flavor will add touch of liqueur or smattering of brandy. But this refreshingly light drink above was made with a Trefethen Chardonnay 2014, which already has the enticing aromas of Granny Smith apples, clover honey, honeysuckle and nutmeg… enjoy!!!

Love and butterfly kisses,
Kathleen

Passion for Flowers

Early dawns, long days, late sunsets and short nights ….. welcome to the beginning of summer 2020. Given the challenging moment we find ourselves living in, it’s important to experience the beauty of nature in order to stay centered. Today my dearest friend Kiwi said she’s been buying flowers lately to place throughout her home to stay uplifted, as we travel this arduous road to a new normal. I too have taken to scouring farmers markets for flowers I cannot harvest at Heath, but enjoyed the blooms above from our garden.

Here’s to bringing beauty to our lives!!!
