Wedding Wednesday: Caitlyn & Brett Borst

 Caitlyn fell for the boy next door the first time she saw him and they instantly became friends. Their first trip together was to Mammoth Mountain, and they have made it an annual occasion. Their most recent trip up the mountain resulted in a marriage proposal that caught Caitlyn pleasantly by surprise. Their wedding was very homey in every way from the location being the groom's parent's home to the homemade favors and treats. The day felt exactly like the intimate party the couple wanted to begin their adventure of being husband and wife.

Mangia Monday: Infused Water

It happens all the time: You have guests over only to open the fridge and realize, the only beverage you have to serve is water.  Although it's no tragedy (hello, hydration!), sometimes it looks a little more presentable to have something other than the H20 you take out of the faucet.  Here, a couple of options when beverages slip your mind, or if you just want a refreshing, infused water.   There are so many different ways to garnish your water and they happen to taste and look great, too!
