Fun little arrangement fashioned from bouquet brought by sweet new friend. Happy weekend from rainy but beautifully green California. #rancholazaca #californiacookingandsouthernstyle #bouquet #teapotarrangement
DONE ✅ … the manuscript anyway… the mere beginning of the end… so why do I feel I could burst into tears ??? #californiacookingandsouthernstyle with the incomparable @chefstephvalentine , coming in late fall (Lord willin’) from @skyhorsepub ♥️you @crystal_beth3 @triagiovan @deborahllewellyn @mollybrownballantine @rkart1 @tomdittmer @w.cromer and the team at #rancholazaca
The true winter weather we are having in S California has created the most dramatic cloud formations and light … and rain! This scene a few days ago from my afternoon walk reminded me of the Bible verse: The Lord is in his holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before him. .

Always love visiting my friends and family in the Lowcountry. Meanwhile am trying to get the hang of posting stories and am hopeless. Can anyone suggest a good YouTube tutorial? Or should I just ask a teenager? My attempt at a story (highlight?) in profile. And I dont know how the blank circle got there.., #lowcountry #frogmore #beaufortsc
Place card idea to stick pieces of a puzzle onto seating cards, write the person’s name on the card, and a silly message inside, like “You’re my missing piece” or “You complete me” or “You put a song in my heart” (which worked for a ♥️-shaped puzzle and musician guest☺️) and have guests complete the puzzle before sitting down. Swipe to see the finished heart. Love this puzzle from @libertypuzzles .
