broccoli crunch salad

{images via 101 cookbooks}

For our family Easter gathering this year I decided to bring broccoli crunch salad made from a 101 Cookbooks recipe. I dare say it was a hit! Next time however, I will follow the instructions a little more closely and not dress the salad until just before it is served. Some of the "crunch" may have lost its punch on the car ride over!

*Do you have any recipes you'd like to share? I'm always on the lookout for new additions to my {very limited} repertoire!

california ranch wedding

I am pretty much loving everything about Eileen and TJ's California ranch wedding... the golden light, the stunning setting and don't even get me started on those flowers. Head over to Jose Villa's blog to see more of the gorgeous details, you'll be glad you did.

SOS + a giveaway

I have always loved COATT's morse coded necklaces... and when I saw that they were donating 60% of the proceeds from their SOS necklace to MSF {which helps support relief efforts in Japan} I knew I had to pick one up. I thought I would keep the good vibes flowing by sending it on to one of my lovely readers. The rules are simple, leave a comment below and a winner will be chosen at random next week. Good luck!

*Update: Nikki is the lucky winner! Thank you all for playing!

early spring chic

I am unabashedly enamored with these photos from Toast's early spring catalog. Note to self: must book international vacation where one's days are spent lounging at neighborhood cafes and bicycling down cobblestone streets, all while looking impossibly chic.
