    My friend Erin emailed me about a couples shower she and her husband are hosting soon. She’s thinking about serving a signature cocktail similar to the delicious blackberry-lemonade-vodka concoction served at Art & Jenny’s wedding last April and asked for my input.

    These two are the best birthday present ever. Luvzee.

    Have a great day, y’all…


    P.S. There won’t be any Derbyelated posts from me this year, as we will be attending a friend’s wedding this Saturday rather than hosting or attending a Derby party. I do, however, intend to watch the race from home before we set out for Malibu for the nuptials. Any of you Lexingtonians or Lexingtoniennes have a favorite running??
