First, before I forget, guest posts! I need 3 guest posts: 1 Friday Foodie Feature and 2 posts on anything from recipes to wine reviews to travel photos. We are leaving for Napa and Sonoma a week from today, and while I do plan on some blogging, I would love to have some guest bloggers as well. Going to so many events recently and meeting so many great bloggers has totally reminded me of what a great community we bloggers have, and I want to keep promoting that.
Speaking of events, last night I attended the launch party for the Crave Boston book.
CRAVE boston innovatively connects urban gals to the sassiest, gutsiest, most inspiring people they need to know in Boston. Our modern marketplace of soirees, gatherings and online networking serves as your ambassador to everything there is to CRAVE about the Walking City.
Since much of my blog focuses on my life as a city girl, I could not wait to get my hands on the Crave book and to learn more about it.
I walked from my office all the way to the event and enjoyed the GORGEOUS dry, sunny day that we had yesterday. It was perfection.
The event was held at a funky artists’ studio in the Fort Point area, a refreshingly different event space.
Two of my favorite things in the event space were this poster and Oscar the dog who was friendly and fluffy and knew how to sit and shake. Love.
There was beauty everywhere.
There were chunky chocolate chip cookies from Harvard Sweet Boutique, and they were awesome.
Once again, Valerie outdid herself with her gorgeous creations, and I tried a new one, a chocolate with goat cheese strawberry balsamic filling.
Holy chocolate heaven.
The perfect burnt caramel cups and lavender infused chocolates were also on display.
Throughout the evening, I sipped on an Honest Tea and Segura Viudas cocktail. It was yummy AND healthy!
I also sampled Joos fresh juice which was fresh and life-giving. From the Joos website:
You can expect any combination of dark, leafy greens (e.g., kale, chard, collards, etc.), other green vegetables (e.g., celery, cucumbers, fennel, etc.), herbs (e.g., cilantro, parsley, etc.), roots (e.g., ginger, turmeric, beets, etc.), fruits (e.g., lemon, apple, cranberries, pineapple, kumquats, etc.), carrots and so many more exciting and delicious fruits and vegetables.
I love this stuff and hope that it becomes available in places around my office. I love my kale and spinach smoothies, and I often CRAVE them during the work day. Joos is an awesome solution to that craving.
I had to leave the party a little early and know I probably missed even more fun, but I was go glad to have a chance to check out Crave, and I look forward to learning more.
Right now I am craving rest and sunshine. I want to spend a day this weekend just sitting on the beach quietly with no technology, work, or worry.
What do you crave?
I am also changing the name of the blog soon, after a year it has evolved and has been confused far too often with Eat Pray Love, a book that I did not even finish because I didn’t like it! I am thinking Boston Wine & Dine or Travel, Wine & Dine, something that more accurately reflects the writing I have been doing. Stay tuned!
