Funny story, Chris and I are beekeepers …something I never would have guessed would be a part of my life but now, mixed into my love for sushi and rap, I don a bee bonnet and do my best to wrangle 200,000 feisty Italian females and encourage them to work their stingers off so that I can enjoy a little honey on my toast.
We call our urban farm “Todos Ranch” and this was our first batch of honey. Not only did our first year yield 5 gallons but we won a Blue Ribbon AND a Red Ribbon at The 2011 Boulder County Fair – yea girls!
Thought I’d share a few snipits from this past week along with my quest to find a Valentine for Chris. Yes I know it’s a week after the fact, but Chris has been out of town since before Valentine’s Day so I’m good on time.
Feb 13, 2012 – An honest attempt at buying a Valentine before the actual day
Lindsey and Alyssa, The Catering By Design ladies treated us, The Calluna Ladies, to lunch and then pedis at Ten20, the absolute best nail salon in Colorado!!! Our date lasted from noon until 5…I’m sure (like me) you’re wondering “How does she fit it all in?”
Tu-Ha is my absolute favorite at Ten20 and I always request her but unfortunately she wasn’t avail and because this was a gift from the Catering By Design girls for all of our wedding collaborations I ended up with Angry Anita… who was especially angry after I took this photo. Usually I can find something “bathy” for Chris at Ten20 but no luck, all of their gifts were pretty girly this time around.
