  4. Hello Dearest Noel ~

    You know how much I crave greens on a daily basis, and I will be preparing this for Sunday brunch this weekend!

    We have had a very exciting few days scrambling to install Sean's first photography exhibition in a local organic cafe, Cibo! It is all up now and absolutely stunning! As you know, shows are a lot of work, but the end result is always so satisfying! I'll be posting more about it next week.

    Thinking of you and wishng you and your lovely self a beautiful holiday weekend!
