Winter is holding on strong here. I know. It’s only the first week of March. So these things are to be expected around these parts. That said, it doesn’t keep the cold and the lack of sunshine from taking a toll. I feel like most people around me are feeling it right now. For some reason it has me dreaming of taking advantage of the first warm weekend to gather with close friends, cook dinner together and enjoy libations by a big fire. We’re outside far more than in during the warmer months so right now I just can’t wait for the weather to break. This cozy seaside dinner party? It’s my ultimate inspiration at the moment. Friends, food, laughter and memories in the making. Be sure to pop over and check out all the stunning images at D’Art Photographie. There are too many to count.
