Red, White, & Blue in the High Country

We headed to the high country this weekend for a little R&R and to escape the brutal heat. We are so lucky to have a little retreat just a few hours to the west that always seems to have temperatures about 20 degrees cooler. One of the things I love most about being in the mountains is dining al fresco on the deck. We grilled up some fantastic ribs, paired them with fresh summer veggies, & some of our favorite Sonoma wine.

I really wish I had remembered to snap a few photos of our yummy dinner, alas, that didn't happen! Can't you just picture serving up a deck dinner party with friends using a Clairebella Personalized Melamine Platter? It would be the perfect tabletop accessory and you don't have to worry about it breaking outdoors either!

After some rest, relaxation, a little parade viewing, and a fabulous fireworks display I am ready for July! Cheers to the red, white, & blue! In celebration of our nations birthday, Layla Grace is offering a 10% discount on all red, white, & blue entertainment accessories now through July 31st using promo code "rwb10."

I love Pete, I can never see enough pictures of his handsome face. And I love that you can get away where it is cooler!

Have a happy 4th!
