Remembering a Beautiful Spring Day, and an Amazing Dinner
Two springs ago, I planned a progressive dinner (remember those?) with neighbors, which was photographed for a feature I wrote for Hallmark magazine (sniffle, sniffle–the magazine folded last year, just before this story was to be published!). My editor was kind enough to send me some of the photos, taken by the super-talented Jake Johnson of Hallmark, and I wanted to post a little snippet of that day here. (I’m still drooling over that food–I developed the recipes for all, but on the day of, we had a chef do the cooking–whew! It’s a tough job being a “model”!)
It was the most amazingly warm evening in late spring (see how we’re wearing tank tops and skirts?!), the food was divine, the drinks were flowing (even if I couldn’t drink them–I was 2 months pregnant!), and the wisteria in front of our house was in bloom along with flowers all throughout the neighborhood. We fell in love with the Hallmark producers, stylists–even the makeup gal! What a day to remember! Thanks to my dear neighbors who participated. Let’s do it again this spring!
