Friends. Giving.












Last weekend Jeremy and I took a little road trip down to Austin, Texas to spend some time with our new friends (and clients) Melissa & Dave. I’m designing a Paleo cookbook for Mel and she wanted to get a group shot of all the contributors for the back-of-the-book bios. And she promised food & drink.

So, it was this picture perfect scene. An outdoor feast + 75 degree temperature + a canopy of lights + beautiful people + great conversation – it was a recipe for magic. We talked about the creative process and art and food. We shared back stories and exchanged hearty laughs.

I need more of these kinds of scenes in my life – I’m thinking it starts by stringing some lights in my backyard. I’ll cook and you bring the booze. How does that sound?

    I’m sooooooo there – I’ll be happy to supply & mix the drinks!

    anything to live in the dream world of J&K! (and anything to distract me from this nightmare my life has become)

    Small world. I went Paleo/Primal and started Crossfit about 4 months ago. I frequent her blog! I thought she looked familiar. Can’t wait to buy the cookbook!
