Hello friends and Happy Friday! I can hear Marc chopping and plating … I’m gonna make this quick to be sure our Friday Night Snacks includes at least a few vegetables.
Thinking about pockets. Are y’all fans? At best, I have mixed feelings. I feel like they pull on the front of a sweater and I rarely use them (unless they’re a key design detail … and then only for the photos). I’m cutting out my first Wiksten Dress … and I’m undecided. I think they’re a cute detail, but I cannot imagine ever using them. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Grateful for getting outside today! I enjoyed a morning walk by myself (see above) and an afternoon one at the park with Lauren.
Inspired by this year’s confirmation class. Last night we hosted a dinner for them to read their faith statements in front of Session (the elected “elders” of the congregation – our church has 36 … plus mentors like me and family made a crowd of about 60 people) as the last formal step before joining the church on Sunday. Hearing these 14 year olds talk about what they believe, question, value and hope to become was a blessing.
Fun … as part of our Beaufort weekend, each of us shared a “specialty cocktail”. Mine was a grapefruit gin & tonic and it’s my new-favorite warm-weather highball. 2 oz. gin, 1 oz. grapefruit juice, 1/2 oz. thyme simple syrup (1:4 sugar/water ratio with a lot of thyme) – top with tonic and a squeeze of lemon.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
