I’m SO glad my wedding pictures showed up in my mailbox yesterday. I was planning on sharing a cocktail recipe with you today but I’m still tweaking it. I swear I didn’t change my posts around because I was so excited to share pictures with you…I swear! ;)

Our photographer, Brandon M Sweet, uses real film so our pictures took a little longer than most. It was definitely worth the wait! And I loved looking at the pictures (numerous times) with my husband last night.

I don’t want to bore you with tons of wedding pictures so I picked my favorites – let me know if you are interested in seeing more and I can post some more soon!

I need to start this post by saying that I’m absolutely in love with the food here in LA. I know, we’ve only been here a month. I haven’t even spent a week at our new place, and yet, so quickly I’ve fallen in love with hills, the endless streets with amazing restaurants, and sun

daily eats: 11.9.11 {paleo-style}

My background in Nutrition always makes me very interested in all of the latest diets/food trends/etc ¬†and I keep hearing about the paleo diet.
