Predictable. A Valentine’s something or another the day before. Well this year it’s a Valentine’s cocktail. I think you’ll like the blood orange against the basil and the margarita meets French kiss cocktail combination. It’s not dessert because I couldn’t get around to photographing it, that’s the downside of being a slower shooter and having a 9-5’r that only allows me to photograph on the weekend.
I know, I’m such an excuse maker.
Well here’s another one: I’m cutting this post short—struggling with a personal issue that has me heavy. I ‘m sorry, I just don’t have it in me to be up and conversational.
Cheers, to a forward looking statement that tomorrow will be better than today.
