Which brings me to today’s wedding cake. This lovely, simple one-tier cake adorned with strawberries. Read More

Strangely enough (or maybe not so strangely considering my love for all things warm and tropical) I adore flamingos.

I love this time of early summer – a couple weeks after all the flowers have been planted, when they’re still bright and blooming.
