It’s Henry’s first Easter and I’m so excited to have his first Easter basket complete. Although he’s a little too young to fully understand, I still wanted to start the tradition and am looking forward to having him “open” it on Easter morning. I stuffed it with books and toys and am linking some of my favorite gift ideas for your little ones here!

We had such a special weekend celebrating H’s baptism with family and friends. I served finger sandwiches and an orzo salad, and of course set out a large cheese board for snacking. For dessert, we had custom cookies and a homemade angel food cake with berries and lemon curd. It was a beautiful, sunny Sunday that we will remember forever!



When life gives you lemons… make this maple bourbon cocktail. My mom got me hooked on this fresh cocktail after finding some homegrown, insanely juicy lemons in the neighborhood.

Ingredients:
3 shots bourbon
2 shots fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Directions:
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass containing large ice cubes. Makes 2 cocktails.

Enjoy!

This ocean-front shingled Gambrel style beach house by Patrick Ahearn (architecture) and Katie Rosenfeld (interiors) has me falling in love with color! Katie’s goal was a colorful and eclectic interior that still felt sophisticated and fresh, and it’s clear that she nailed it. I love this mixed with the classic colonial architecture.
