last weekend my gal pals & i got together for a festive & wine-filled holiday party!  there was brie, spinach & artichoke dip, apple pie and meatballs!  all the best things right?  but what made the night even better was sharing stories about family traditions and our favorite holiday memories.  some of us have known each other for a few months and others for a few years, but we all got a little closer after a glass of pinot noir and a story about christmas gifts gone wrong!  moments like these are what make the holidays so special, and you’ll catch a few of them below.

the perfect {picnic} // blogger besties

one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields.  the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket.  we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company.  now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal.  however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable.  they provided all the necessities & then some!  the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies.  this was a feast fit for a king!  [or 4 queens]
