July Fun

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Good Morning Darlings!

How has the summer been treating you? I can’t believe it’s already mid-July – how can that be?

I thought we could catch up by sharing our summer fun photos so far.  I would love it if you shared yours with me, too!

Oooh! Woody Harrelson was spotted on one of Atlanta Movie Tours outings! How fun is that?

Atlanta Movie Tours has been taking up my time and I apologize for not making time for us to get together. But…Woody Harrelson!!

It was so great having our dear friends Rick and Denise visit us for July 4th. It was one wild weekend!

My sweet Eric put together a paella for 40 on the 4th. It was deeeeeeeelicious.

We discovered, Bartaco – which feels like being at the beach in the middle of Atlanta. Check it out.

My new favorite place – Bartaco Atlanta

Jane had a very special birthday and we were so excited to celebrate with her at the Greystone Building at Piedmont Park. Under the stars, at a very posh, catered affair. It was swoony and a perfect way to fete one of the loveliest people on earth.

 

Those are the highlights of July so far – how has your summer been?  I would love to hear what you’ve been up to!

xoxo, Patti

Snack Bracket 2014

Good Morning Darlings!

It’s Grammy Day, and that means staying home and texting snarky fashion comments with Holly & John. We will whip up something fun to munch while watching, but it is not our biggest food day of the year.

What’s the biggest food day, you ask?

This past weekend was filled with yummy food and fabulous friends.

New Year’s Eve Prep

Monday, December 26th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Did you have the best Christmas with the most fun? Oh, good! Me, too.

New Year’s Eve is less than a week away. Are you hosting? Need some ideas?

You are going to need cocktail recipes!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Good Morning Darlings!

I hope you are reading this while watching the Macy’s Day Parade in your jammies and drinking hot chocolate on the couch. While someone else peels the potatoes.

What else am I thankful for?

What Feeds Your Soul?

Good Morning Darlings!

I was musing today about what nourishes me.

What makes you really happy?

Meatloaf For A Crowd

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Oh, you know how we are here in the south. We have to make sure everyone is fed. And fed well.

One night not so long ago, we had our dear friend, Johnny P. over for supper. I made meatloaf. To feed about 20. You never know how hungry men will be. Or who might stop by.

Did we eat it all?

Spring in My Step

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I am so excited for spring to be here. Easter, in particular, when Eric, John and I will be hosting dinner at our house.

To get ready, I have taken large square votive holders, filled them with potting soil and grass seeds and now I wait. The grass-filled votive holders will line our dinner table, enveloping the table in fresh, green grass. But for now, I am tending to my little charges.

Would you like to see what’s inspiring me today?
