oh man we have been totally OVER THE MOON WORKING ON ALL THESE FUN PROJECTS. WE DID A GIVE AWAY A FEW WEEKS AGO AND PUT TOGETHER A REALLY WONDERFUL PACKAGE OF WEEKEND GETAWAY ESSENTIALS. IT HAS BEEN REALLY FUN COMING UP WITH FUN GIFTS FOR YOU GUYS AS WELL AS MEETING SOME REALLY REMARKABLE WOMEN WHO HAVE HELPED GUIDE AND SUPPORT US THROUGH THIS GROWING PROCESS. IT CAN BE REALLY NERVE WRACKING CHANGING CAREERS BUT WHEN IT'S FOR SOMETHING THAT HAS YOUR WHOLE HEART IN IT IT FEELS SO MUCH LESS LIKE WORK. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO SHARE OUR WORK AND PROJECTS WITH YOU GUYS. THANKS FOR COMING ALONG FOR THIS RIDE - WE PROMISE TO MAKE IT A REALLY PRETTY ONE.
this weekend we met up to talk about a few things we have up our sleeves like a girls night in, a gift bag give away, and a bigger bash we are pretty excited about planning. sometimes its hard to carve out time for a sit down meeting (we are both pretty much always on the go). so when we can have a full day meeting we want to make sure we do it right. we made these delicious cocktails which were perfect for that summer heat and some equally delicious sandwiches for a backyard picnic meeting. the cocktails were SUPER easy to make and look simply adorable. we picked up some fresh mint and cucumbers from the farmers market and the elderflower rose lemonade from our local grocery store.
we used vodka and gin since we each prefer one or the other (even though I prefer vodka I think the gin version may have taken the cake). see the recipe below:
1 1/2 oz** gin (or vodka)
2 oz Elderflower Rose Lemonade
4 large mint leaves
garnish with cucumber slice and a bunch o’ mint
top off with cucumber spritzer from trader joes (not pictured)
** we didn’t use a jig to measure and tend to have heavy hands so really, you do you on the measuring side because hey, you’re the one enjoying it!
don't forget your sunnies and go heavy on the ice, it's hot out there! CHEERS!
