My New Profession of Love – Red

Last night while eating strawberries, my son and I decided to make a little strawberry concoction…puree fresh strawberries in the food processor, lots of sugar & of course water…mmmmm nice summer drink for sure (I only had a sip for those who know I’m on a diet) I had a watermelon version in Mexico on our recent trip, and it was so unique (in a good way).

I’ve definitely posted my share of “red” lately. When I was younger, I loved red so much and got burnt out. I do not have one piece of red in my whole closet except for 2 pairs of red shoes and a red handbag. I didn’t mind it as a little punch of unexpected color, but I guess Mary McDonald’s office ignited a lil’ something in me.

It got me thinking – If I were to have a summer evening get-together based on my new love, what would it look like? Well, I would definitely incorporate the new drink (maybe add a little squeeze of lemon), along with strawberry shortcake for dessert. (Who cares about the meal, right? As long as there’s coffee and desert!)

I would serve on these fabulous Kate Spade plates…

How do you feel about red? Would you come to my party?



  1. Your not-so-little guy is such a cutie!! I would so be at your party … and if it were in Miles’ living room, you may never get me to leave. 😉

  2. Ok, maybe I’m starting to like red a little more!
