Thursday

daydream believer

I love watching HGTV and I often daydream about my perfect house and kitchen. I think kitchens are important because food is something I am passionate about. It brings people together and whether you would like to admit it or not, it can change your mood instantly...turning that frown upside down! Here is a kitchen I found on HGTV's website that I really like. I would add some pops of color but it's a beautiful blank canvas isn't it?!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Caprese salads have become a staple for me during the spring and summer seasons. It's quick and easy to make and tastes great on a warm day. There is a great balance of flavors and fresh basil is so intoxicating isn't it?! I decided instead of continually buying basil and tomatoes at the store, what if I grow my own?! So I went to Lowe's and picked up some roma tomatoes and basil plants. Cross your fingers that something will sprout in a month or so! I'll keep you updated on the progress!


 aren't they beautiful?!

 the point of no return!





voila!

With all the smart phones and i-phones out in the market today, there are so many different photography apps you can download. I downloaded one and have been retouching all sort of pictures! Here are a few

big hat days

Here in the central valley we do things big...like Big Hat Days big! :)  One of the largest craft fairs in central California...it was full of great food booths, crafts, and of course hats! Here are some pictures from the great day we had. I hope you all have a great week!
