release the kraken!

Summertime is the best time to discover new cocktails and enjoy sipping on old faves. Pictured above top is the wonderfully named drink, The Kraken, from local Charlotte restaurant Halcyon. It is an ice-cold dirty martini with a dash of squid ink. I have to admit that I wasn't brave enough to order it myself, but I had a sip of my friend's and it was quite tasty. The other drink pictured is a classic pink greyhound – grapefruit juice and vodka – with a juicy orange slice. Those were whipped up and enjoyed by me and my mom on a recent seaside visit to Fripp Island, SC. So yummy!

bridesmaid luncheon

My awesome cousin got married about a month ago, and I designed some Bridesmaid Luncheon invitations that were in keeping with her purple-hued wedding theme. Oh, I love how they turned out – fresh and modern, but still elegant, just like the lovely bride! I used super-thick cotton paper, which really made it special. It was such fun to do this for her – she's about the sweetest gal I know.

asheville wedding

What prettier place to have a wedding than The Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina? A sweet friend of mine got married there a while ago and I've been meaning to post my photos ever since. Laura and her darling Lee had beautiful, sunshiney weather, gorgeous flowers and a fun Victorian theme, complete with period furniture and little charming vignettes set up on a terrace outside the reception at The Grand Bohemian. So pretty!

ryan bingham in south end

Saw Ryan Bingham in concert a few weeks ago. (This is a little photo I took with my phone, so not the best quality.) It was at a place near my apartment, a nice dive-y place with plenty of cold beer on tap. Perfect for concert watching. Check out his music hereSouthside of Heaven is a really good standard. I also love Bluebird and Depression.
