Picking Blueberries at Blase Family Farm

I am officially in love with Blase Family Farm. I pick blueberries all the time out in east Texas (which of course was the inspiration for my Blueberry Hill Surprise!) but this was my first time at beautiful Blase Family Farm in Rockwall, TX about twenty minutes east of Dallas. Blase impresses from the minute…

Rockwall Founders Day Festival

Twenty minutes east of Dallas lies an adorable lakeside town reminiscent of Stars Hollow. Rockwall, Texas was founded in 1873 and hosts a Founders Day Festival every year to commemorate. (And yes, that does bring this mega Vampire Diaries fan joy.) The event is held at beautiful Harry Myers Park, which is hilly with lots…

Mad Hatter Gin & Tea Party

Sunday Funday indeed! My friend Sylvia and I went down the rabbit hole and attended the Mad Hatter Gin & Tea Party in Dallas today. I so love a tea party and there’s no finer tea company than Sylvia! I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect from the event but now that I’ve gone, I’ll…

Bridgerton Tea at Hotel Crescent Court

Dearest Reader, It is the greatest honor to present you with Hotel Crescent Court’s remarkable Bridgerton Tea.  When my friend Irene suggested we take part in a Spill the Tea event at Hotel Crescent Court, I couldn’t have been more excited.

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2022

Tonight was the fifth annual Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival and what a lovely evening it was in the garden. This is hands down my favorite foodie event of the whole year. What could possibly be a more me event than sipping rosé and eating tons of gourmet bites while surrounded by the best…

Return to The Nutcracker

It was a joyous opening night at Texas Ballet Theater. I’m not sure who was more thrilled to be at Bass Performance Hall: the performers, who radiated enthusiasm from the stage, or the audience, who cheered just about every three minutes. Seeing Texas Ballet Theater’s The Nutcracker is one of my favorite holiday traditions. After…

Tamales & Tequila

When Penta Tequila invited me to a tequila tasting + tamale making class this afternoon, I was ecstatic. I’ve never made tamales before and I’ve never taken a tequila tasting class so I was intrigued! Penta Tequila was created by five Napa Valley winemaker friends who love enjoying tequila together and is made using 100%…

Holiday Tea at Dallas Arboretum

The holiday tea is served November 8 – December 31. Tea is served at DeGolyer Restaurant inside the Dallas Arboretum across from the Christmas village so be prepared to…

Holiday at the Arboretum

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” One of my favorite holiday events of the year is Holiday at the Arboretum, the annual festival held November 10-December 31st at Dallas Arboretum. Over a million lights twinkle throughout the festival, which is sponsored by Reliant Energy. There’s so much to do and see; it’s no…
