signature drink: mulled wine

Baby, it’s cold outside! I woke up to ice-covered-everything and the trek to my car (super grateful for a garage!) was treacherous in my ankle cowgirl booties.

harvest table: happy thanksgiving!

To give you a snapshot, the past few weeks have brought venue walk-through’s, client planning meetings and three new Lovely Day weddings booked – all in […]
