At last! We’ve reached part two of my honeymoon recap. (Part one was all about Paris.) Since our wedding anniversary recently just passed (and therefore our honeymoon-iversary as well), we’ve been reliving those moments a lot. Plus I was also recipe-testing for the kouign amann recipe (which you’ll find below), so that made us miss our precious honeymoon days that much more, filled with French pastries, cocktails and lazy wanderings.

Well now that I’ve FINALLY covered that wedding of ours here on the blog, it’s about time for me to tell you about that honeymoon we took.
That sweet, glorious, perfect, unbelievable honeymoon. The one we took A YEAR ago. Woops. It’s not like I didn’t want to tell you about it, it’s just that I wanted to talk about the wedding first (because we need to go in order), and well … because life happens. But here we are! And don’t you worry – I’m the kind of person who takes notes during her travels so she can remember everything she ate, so I’ll be able to pull those memories out of my brain thanks to my trusty iPhone notes.

Just the top 6 – I didn’t want to overwhelm you guys. (Also, I don’t really post that often, at least compared to some bloggers …) You definitely have good taste because these were some of my favorites as well. Here we go: [Read more…]
I didn’t really expect to be putting this much time into the blog with only 3 weeks to go until my wedding, but when super fun Internet People like Emily of The Pig and Quill and Gina of So Let’s Hang Out put on a virtual summer potluck party, you put your blogging pants on. I’ve been wanting to share the recipe for this drink, and I thought it fit in pretty well with their theme. Do you know these ladies? I met them recently through Billy’s #PopsicleWeek, and I immediately developed blog-crushes on both of them. You should check them out! [Read more…]
