I walked through a white window. And came out black. I walked through a black door and now stand pale gray. Wring me out. Lay me to dry somewhere warm. Let me absorb the blue sky. Drink the green sea. Rub against a red bird. Maybe then I will be infinitely expansive. And fly...
We had a great weekend on the water at Lake Havasu. I had heard to many rumors of crazy debauchery filled with titty tassels and old leathery men in tank tops, I wasn't sure what to expect. All I knew is that I was on the cool kids boat, and even if people were getting creepy we could jet out and find a small cove to rock in. Maybe it was the weekend we went, it was Mother's Day. The craziest incident was a magic man trapping himself under water in cement locks... I never did see him escape. We got to see a few too small for their beer bodies bikini's, and some tan "lake people" but nothing that took away from a mojito going down smooth at the Naked Turtle Beach Bar. I love a lake. I love a cooler, good music, and some water to dip my toes in.Oh and my boat name is"Bitch Please."Like literally the name of the purple boat I would have if I lived lakeside.
My favorite vendors: Click Box Studios ( pictured above ) and A Pinch of Spirit for their red velvet cake ( above) and champagne they shared with me in the back. You saved my wedding salon life with that bubbly.
I grew up in a small town in Ohio and experienced the type of enchanted childhood you only read about. I had family dinners every night with meals prepared by an amazing Betty Crocker esque mother and ( I )won 'Candy Making' at age 9 for 4-H in the Belmont County Fair. I have distinct memories of the moments I started to find my imagination. I began to see the world in a way I knew was different and special. When I was 20 years old I moved to Los Angeles and have been here ever since, living in my dreams.
Cheers to continuing my beautiful heritage of showing love through food, imagination through pictures, and adding a special twist (of lime..) on life.
