Is there anything better on game day than Brats, Pretzels & Beer?!?! This was my first stab at making a homemade pretzel - I snagged this recipe from my fave, @halfbakedharvest 😋 You can swipe right to see how they came together, as well as my boys enjoying the good eats, a cold beer and a beautiful evening dining al fresco! We are cozied on the couch now watching the @uofm_nation Michigan Wolverines 💙🏈💙🏈

I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday evening! Definitely give these pretzels a try! So good and pairs so well with football!!

“General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred & greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere.

Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there — fathers & sons, mothers & daughters, husbands & wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, & old friends.

When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge — they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion… love actually IS all around.” ~ Love Actually

Super yummy, guilt free, Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins! I make these every year and they are my absolute favorite! Now that we have entered the “ber” months, I am dreaming of cooler temps, fall color and all things pumpkin!

I have to bring attention to the Cinnamon infused Maple Syrup by @sypcoffee - oh my gourd is it delicious and a MUST HAVE in your pantry to truly give these muffins that extra special something! 

Two cans of pumpkin purée will give you enough to triple this batch and will yield about 22 muffins. Recipe in the comments below! 🎃

Brad & I met over 16 years ago at a music event - we both worked in the Nashville music industry at that time. One of our shared passions is music. (I’m sure everyone can relate!) Music makes us feel, it connects us. 

This past July, Brad & I were vacationing with family on 30A and stumbled upon an artsy shop called @thezoogallery while waiting for a table at Red Bar.  We had been on the lookout for a cool piece of art to hang above the bar in the parlor room we just renovated in our new home. We both instantly fell in love with this piece by @rebecca.puig - as did two of our other family members. We all stood there reading these powerful lyrics by iconic & legendary artists. We were surprised to find ourselves teary-eyed reading the words. Music is that powerful. We knew this was the piece for us. It was also the piece for our other two family members too, haha. We all went home with one! Special thanks to @thezoogallery for being so kind and accommodating - there was only 1 piece in that particular store, we were leaving town the next day and they hustled to their other locations to grab the other two before we hit the road! @rebecca.puig , we just love this piece so much! 
Swipe right to see it closer, pinch and zoom to see all the lyrics! Swipe right again to see me and Brad! ♥️

Fall is my absolute favorite season. Everything about it - the pumpkin spice lattes, caramel apples, the turning of the leaves and all of the beautiful colors they paint the landscape with: deep reds, oranges, gold and brown. Finding a partner that loves it just as much as I do makes the upcoming season all the more warm and cozy. (We fell in love in the Fall! 🧡) 

This is an image I shot at Smith Park a couple years ago. Brad and I are slowly turning our home into an eternal fall vibe. (We love it that much!). Swipe right to see how this looks printed and framed. Want a copy for your own wall? DM me to place an order! 

Happy September!

Brad & I spent a long weekend in San Francisco a few weeks ago and had the best experience at @tonyspizza415 - it was one of those perfect evenings, clear and crisp outside. We had spent our day hiking some miles through Golden Gate Park and only snacking on trail mix, come dinner time we were starving. We found ourselves passing through Little Italy and the smell was intoxicating. The scent of garlic pumping out of Tony’s won us over immediately. Their outdoor eating strip was lit up with twinkly lights and the service was incredible. We started with a meatball appetizer and followed that with their award winning Napoletana Margherita Pizza. We ate every bite. We paired it with our favorite Italian red wine - a delicious Amarone 🍷. A perfect, romantic evening we won’t forget. Moments such as these don’t happen every day given the rat race of most days so you gotta savor it when the opportunity presents itself.  In honor of National Red Wine day it seemed fitting to share this experience with you. ♥️ Wishing you all love, health and happiness….and great pizza and red wine! Cheers!

Iced Strawberry Matcha 
🍓🍵 
Made with only 4 simple ingredients yet packs an antioxidant punch 🥊 

1. Organic Strawberries
2. @aiyamatcha  matcha 
3. @madhavafoods organic light agave
4. @milkadamia unsweetened macadamia milk

Thank you @drmarkhyman for turning me on to Macadamia Milk!!!! ✌🏽♥️

To make, purée strawberries with a splash of water and sweeten with the agave syrup. In a separate batch, blend together your matcha powder and macadamia milk (you can substitute with whatever you like, almond, coconut milk, etc) 
Next fill a cup with ice, order doesn’t matter, but I pour my matcha over the ice first, then pour the strawberries in next. It’s such a pretty concoction, until you mix it, then it looks like mud water, haha, but tastes delicious and refreshing! 

Happy weekend, Friends! ☀️

I love strawberries! Excited to share with you tomorrow a super healthy iced Strawberry Matcha treat! It’s full of antioxidants and is so refreshing - especially while us here in the South are sweltering in these high 90’s temps! I have never been a summer baby. Counting down the days until Fall temps arrive and I can submerge myself into Pumpkin oblivion ♥️
