Since last week, I’ve kicked off summer in true Ashley style (in bbq attire…and a mustard stain or two). Last week was a long one, only because the Warriors played on Monday which started the week on a celebratory note. The weather has been insanely beautiful–we don’t take these hot days for granted as they’re far and few between. My favorite part of the week was dinner at a friend’s house on Thursday night. She has the most darling courtyard nestled on the side of her home, blooming with plants and herbs, and a window that opens to the kitchen where we can play bartender quite conveniently.
I am so happy I brought my camera along because this unexpectedly dreamy scene needed to be documented. We grilled veggies and chicken, made Caprese and a cheese plate for snacks, and opened a few bottles of wine. The temps were perfect and my cheeks hurt from laughing by the end of the night. I live for these nights!
