I spent an amazing three days in Hood River, Oregon last weekend celebrating the wedding of one of my oldest and dearest friends. After a late night on Friday and a very late night on Saturday, however, it’s pretty much taken me the entire week to recover. At “29 again” (and again) I just don’t bounce back quite like I used to – gone are the days of back to back late nights on the weekend, followed by functioning like a normal/productive human being Monday through Friday. Does this mean I’m officially old? Totally worth every exhausted minute, though. A few highlights from my loooooooooong week:
“Spa water” – cucumber + lime + mint. I love keeping a pitcher in the fridge so that I’m more motivated to hydrate.
My aunt Molly and I share a love of granola (remember this?) – when I stopped by her house on my way out of Portland last weekend she sent me home with a yummy bottle of pinot gris and this bag of deliciousness – it’s made with coconut oil and coconut sugar and has been my after-dinner treat every night this week. Healthy granola and pinot gris, best goody bag I could ever ask for.
Wine in a can, and with a bendy straw – what could be cuter?
Delicious Sunday night dinner at Cuoco – handmade parmigiano cappelletti with morel mushrooms, arugula, and peas; vanilla panna cotta with strawberries and Dahlia Bakery cookies + cappuccino. It’s totally healthy as long as you’re sharing, right?
A few of my favorite details from Molly and Patrick’s wedding: hand-chalked welcome sign, gorgeous floral centerpieces, blueberry mojitos with striped straws being passed around during cocktail hour, and of course the spectacular Mt. Hood backdrop. It was such a fun weekend celebrating with old friends and new, and the perfect kick off to Wedding Season 2013. Congrats Molls and Pat!
