A few weekends ago, with gal pals Jen and Michele, Lake Oscawana became our welcomed quiet. We were hoping for a frozen lake but due to the strangely warm weather only parts of it remained frozen. Not the type you’d want to step onto.
It was our last night. After much laughter and a few too many, the comforting warmth of the lakeside fire pit gave way to the idea that we could squeeze a few more in, but we were running low. I ran into the house, and there in the kitchen a shy bottle of whiskey sat perched on the shelf and thus this drink was made. She floweth into our mouths as the fire burned and kept us warm it was a happy and oddly festive night. I don’t even know what to call it…mmmmaybe Cold Springs Nectar or Cold Springs Froth Bite or Lakeside Fire Shimmy.
My secret? We couldn’t find a shaker so we opted for the french press. It still worked!
Cold Springs Nectar or The Cold Springs Froth Bite or Lakeside Fire Shimmy

Thanks to the hostess Jen! and Birthday Girl Michele!
I decided to move to New York. It was a rushed decision…and here I am. This wasn’t a real easy move, but that’s completely relative. It has been easy in some aspects but for other reasons it’s also been quite hard. New York is so amazing, I wish I was here earlier. Lucky for me it hasn’t gotten really cold yet. New York I do I do I do love you. Never been so sure of anything. I love you.
Taking a break – Navigating to normalcy once more.
It’s strange the way it is…
Here you go! A few photos from the dinner hosted by the lovely ladies of Edition Local at the Stinson Beach Recreational Center.
