Happy Weekend!

So many mixed emotions this weekend! Tonight Reg will be bringing one of her very good friends to the airport to move back to England (don’t go!!), which will be a very heart wrenching process, but then is immediately following it with a weekend of girl fun time with Christa. We’ll be flea-marketing all day tomorrow at Brimfield, with fun photo shoots on Sunday.

What do you guys have a going on? Is it as much as an emotional roller coaster as ours?

Have a great week ended, loves

Birch & Bourbon

Happy Monday everyone! It’s the new year, we’re¬†returning¬†to work, and we’re getting back into the swing of things today. Cheers to 2016!

This past weekend I was able to break out the amazing new lens, wireless remote and tripod Curtis gave me for Christmas for a fun photoshoot. And it just so happened that we have amazing friends who gave us these beautiful and tasty bottles of booze for the holidays that also just so happened to pair together perfectly! Photoshoot dreams coming true!

That gorgeous tall skinny bottle is from¬†Hartford Flavor Company, a local place that sells the most beautiful flavored liqueurs! I’ve been lucky enough to sample them at some Hartford events, and with flavors like chai, rose, cucumber, lavender and birch ‚Ästhow can you go wrong??

After doing a little research on¬†the Hartford Flavor Company’s website about recipes which used their birch liqueur, we settled on the simple and extremely tasty, Birch & Bourbon which we paired with our newly acquired¬†Kings County Distillery¬†bourbon.
