I'm easing back into blogging after last week's break, so, um, who's ready for vacation photos? Fair warning: ponies ahead.
I spent the weekend in South Beach for a friend's bachelorette, and after waking up to an insane hailstorm and 30° temperatures this morning I'm ready to turn around and get back to sunny skies and rooftop pools.
It took a canceled flight, the very last spot on a standby list, and a couple hours of shoveling my car out of the airport parking lot, but I am back home in snowy Richmond. Sooo... let's turn around and head back to Puerto Rico. It's warm and there are piña coladas.
I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family! I know I did. We spent the long weekend in Charleston with Edward's family. I went to school in Charleston, and while that fact is more than enough to make it special to me, it's also the place where Edward and I met and later got married. Happy memories abound here, and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather we had to wander around and take a million pictures.
We stayed out at Folly Beach and rented a house that could accommodate all the grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for Thanksgiving dinner. Few things make me happier than being on the water.
Guys, I have a good one for you today. Not only is Celia Bailey a crazy talented photographer, she also happens to be one of my oldest and dearest friends. I cannot get enough of her photos of California, and it's high time I shared them with you.
Earlier this week Celia and I chatted about life in LA (the east coast misses you but, sigh, I understand), photographing her adopted city, and what inspires her most. When you're done reading what she has to say here, head on over to her website to oggle more inspiring goodness.
In which we look at people on bikes, which is more or less how I spent my weekend.
I knew next to nothing about the UCI Road World Championship, and I still don't know much, but it was fun getting into the spirit of the thing. I'll spectate just about anything if you give me a bloody Mary and some snacks, but I actually really enjoyed watching the bike race.
I spent the weekend with a group of wild women in Newport, Rhode Island for a friend's bachelorette. Between various dance parties and debaucheries I had a few spare minutes to explore and snap some photos. It was my first time in Newport and I fell in love with the town.
Welcome! I'm Arielle, and this is Scotch & Nonsense. Whether you've come for the home projects, the recipes, or the cocktails, I'm thrilled you're here and I hope you'll stay a bit.
