welcoming september

September is not the end of summer.

It's time to appreciate quieter beaches 
and earlier sunsets. 

 It's a time to revisit old friends 
and make new friends at school. 

It's a time to inspire ourselves 
for the new season ahead...

Summer is a state of mind.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Will you be spending time with friends?

Hot days, cool nights and soccer...

Twilight surfing...

and time alone with a special someone.

labor day chopped salad

This is one of my favorite go-to recipes for any summer get together. It's a healthy mix of fresh corn, tomatoes, green beans, cucumber, red and yellow bell peppers, red onion, and cilantro. It was created by Martha Stewart's daughter, Alexis.

Alexis's Chopped Vegetable Salad

serves 12
½  pound green beans, trimmed & cut into 1/4 inch pieces
½  pound wax beans, trimmed & cut into 1/4 inch pieces
¾  cup Cilantro, leaves
2 ears Corn
1 English cucumber, peeled & cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 Jalapeno pepper, medium
4 Plum tomatoes cut into 1/4-inch pieces
1 Red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, small
1 Red onion, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, small
1 Yellow bell pepper cut into 1/4-inch pieces, small
1 tsp Pepper, freshly ground
1 Salt, Coarse
1 Pinch Sugar 
2 tbsp Olive oil, extra-virgin
2 tbsp Rice wine vinegar

Prepare an ice-water bath. Set aside. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add corn and sugar. Blanch until tender about 6 minutes. Remove from water and plunge immediately into ice bath. When the corn is thoroughly cool, remove from ice bath. Using a large knife, remove kernels from cobs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add beans to boiling water. Blanch until tender about 1 minute. With a slotted spoon, remove from water and plunge immediately into ice bath. When beans are thoroughly cooled, transfer to a colander to drain.

Add wax and green beans, tomatoes, red and yellow pepper, onion, cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeno to corn. Stir to combine. Add olive oil, vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve immediately.

A favorite color of mine for a long time,  
tiffany box blue!  

Even if it's just a touch of of this hue,
it always seems to be the perfect accent.  

One statement piece or a whole wall painted tbb
 can bring richness to any space.
