Watermelon + Tequila = Goodness

Before I present you with this lovely summer treat, I have to say, I am not a fan of a flavored margarita.  My drink of choice is a Cadillac Margarita, no extra frills or thrills or colors!  The original lime is my all-time favorite.

However, I found this recipe via Martha Stewart and I just could not help but clip the recipe and stare longingly at the picture.  I’m so excited to try it, and maybe along side of it, a cold marg…yum!

Rooftop Wedding

I am back from Lake Tahoe and so inspired by the beautiful, blue lake, tall trees and starry nights.  More on that coming soon!

For now, I was browsing through my in-box and I found an e-mail from the Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara.  This little gem is a quaint and charming boutique style hotel, which offers rooftop weddings and receptions for up to 150 guests.  I have yet to visit but I thought the pictures and location were share-worthy.
