What a glorious week we have had. The sun has been shining, the skies are clear, friends are abundant, and the iced coffee is flowing. Make that iced coffee and Mimosas.
It's important to stay hydrated.
We don't usually throw down Mimosas every morning but today we had friends over for brunch. The fabulous M and B are celebrating 25 years of wedded bliss and we wanted to toast them. We've been friends for a long time, and lucky for us they will be joining us in Tunisia in August. Woo Hoo!
We spent the morning talking family, and future, and laughing a ridiculous amount. If you don't have friends who make you laugh a ridiculous amount go find some right now.
With the Mimosas we ate these. Melon with prosciutto and a drizzle of lime and olive oil. Lots of black pepper and a little mint made them sing. They come together in a snap so you can get back to more important things, like laughing your head off with old friends.
And don't forget the importance of staying hydrated.
