Happy Friday! What are you all up to this weekend? I’m looking forward to my “book club” tonight – we don’t actually read books (thus the quotation marks), but I think this evening we’ll be discussing my favorite subject, serial. What better way to unwind from a long week than with girlfriends, wine, and true crime? Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend – stay warm and drink lots of gingerbread lattes! xoxo

Friday Faves

Happy Labor Day Weekend, friends! Its always a little bitersweet to say goodbye to Summer, but I think Fall is in the air – it was gray and rainy in Seattle yesterday, college football starts tomorrow, and in case you haven’t seen it all over Facebook/Instagram, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back (a few weeks early, IMHO). I’m looking forward to celebrating my cousin Max’s wedding tonight, and the first Husky game in our new stadium tomorrow. I hope everyone has fun plans for the long weekend!

Very Berry Sangria, from Real Simple Magazine

1 bottle of red wine (750 ml)
1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
1 12 oz. bottle of ginger ale
1/2 cup sugar (or simple syrup, to taste)
2 oz. blackberry liqueur

Toss the wine, berries, sugar or simple syrup, and liqueur in a pitcher, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Pour in ginger ale just prior to serving. Fill individual glasses with ice and pour sangria over ice. We then topped with champagne, optional. Cheers!
