Good food, good friends, some wine and lots of laughs.


IMG_1807 We had a couple of friends over for some wine, cheese and very random finger food. All the photos as well as the beautiful table layout are thanks to Ange de la Cruz. All I did was a little cooking for this one. 🙂 The food was great and all very simple to make. If you would like the recipe for anything just let me know.
