Green has been my favorite color of 2017 thus far. Not only do I love what it stands for but it also gives me that same feeling you get at the end of September when everything is at the cusp of change. So you can’t blame me with a look like this that packs a green punch.
One night this weekend we packed ourselves a picnic, ventured down to the park surrounding the marina and soaked in some of the great city views Milwaukee has to offer. We gathered up some raspberries, blackberries, dried figs, yogurt Craisins and watermelon. To keep it simple and easy, I whipped up two flatbreads. They both had a base of marscapone cheese and I topped one with sliced cucumbers, mint and blackberry. The other was peach slices, raspberries and basil. The flatbreads were delicious, Harrison agrees, super easy to make and perfect to pack up for a picnic. And of course it wouldn’t be picnic for me without a bottle of Perrier. We biked down before sunset, set up the picnic under a tree, and just relaxed, ate and enjoyed the views. My dress and Harrison’s pants and shirt are from Zara that we bought almost a month ago so we decided our picnic was a good time to sport our new frocks. I think this shirt is perfect for Harrison, I mean it has minibikes on it… and doesn’t he just look suave reclining there? We love moments like this together, simple but meaningful. Here are a few snapshots of our evening. What are your favorite types of moments shared with your friends, family and/or significant other?
