Weekend Reading

Book: Love and Ruin by Paula McLain

Ernest Hemingway and his third wife Martha Gellhorn will be on my mind for weeks to come. Over the weekend I finished reading Love & Ruin by Paula McLain and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the extraordinary characters and events she has brought to life in this latest novel. I’ve spent the past couple of weeks obsessively googling Hemingway, Gellhorn, and WWII. 

While Hemingway’s exploits and literary fame are legendary, I knew very little about Martha Gellhorn before starting this book.

Summer Celebration

Summer — the season of backyard BBQ’s and intimate outdoor dinner gatherings. There is something magical about dining al fresco whether it’s under the night sky with a table lit by globe lights, on a picnic blanket on the beach, or a rustic feast on a farm sampling the season’s freshly picked produce. The warm weather brings people together to catch up after a long winter and create new memories. 

Every summer I love to host at least one dinner for a small group of friends and/or family.I really enjoy setting up colorful tablescapes and preparing a hodgepodge of small appetizing plates for guests to sample over wine.
