Hooray! The Sweetest Occasion is Five

Hooray! The Sweetest Occasion is Five

Posted 09/16/2013 by in About Cyd \ 22 comments

It’s hard for me to believe that The Sweetest Occasion marked five years old at the beginning of September. Five years! If we want to get a little statistical for a moment, that’s 1/6 of my lifetime. It feels so short and yet so long all at the same time. I never imagined five years ago that my first post would lead to all of this. Not even in my wildest dreams did I think that in 2011 I would …

Over the last year or so I’ve developed quite a love affair with popcorn. I was never a huge fan when I was younger, but lately it’s one of my go-to snacks. And you want to know a little secret? Popcorn makes such an easy party food, too! You can pop up a few bags, gussy it up with a few ingredients you may already have in your fridge or pantry and serve it up in your favorite serving bowls …

Many thanks to Stationery Trends for including an article about the unofficial (and yet oh-so-awesome) paper meet-up that I have helped organize over the last few years at the National Stationery Show in the current Spring 2013 issue. Originally dreamed up by my dear friend Erika of Delphine and Chromatic & Co. fame back before I was ever a part of the stationery industry, I started helping out in 2010 and have loved seeing the party grow into one of …

Well, friends, it’s about that time! I’ve been running around all day today finalizing my laundry and packing and errands in preparation for my departure for New York tomorrow morning. I am so excited to catch up with all of my friends and to spend time with my awesome roomies. (This lady, this lady and this lady!) I’d love to have you follow along in the fun! I’ll be blowing up my Instagram and Twitter feeds at near warp speed …

It dawned on me that it’s been a bit since I’ve shared recent snippets with you so today seemed as a good a time as any! Life has been busy the last few months. From traveling (with more to come), moving, celebrating my 30th birthday, and soaking up as much time with family and friends as possible, I literally can’t seem to keep track of the days and weeks as they whiz right on by. I’ve also been working on …

I’m excited to share this cocktail recipe with you today because it’s one of my absolute favorites! While simple, it’s classic, crisp and refreshing. Oh, and utterly delicious. Before we dive into the recipe, first a little background, because I quite enjoy cocktails and conversation with friends. The summer of my senior year of college, I remember coming home from my grueling internship and meeting my dad out on the back deck. He was sipping on a ice cold vodka …

Hi, friends and happy December! I’m making a rare Saturday appearance to make sure you get your weekly dose of link love. Yesterday I traveled to my alma mater to attend a retirement party in honor of the man who was the ultimate mentor to me throughout my undergraduate years and getting Friday Link Love up just couldn’t compete with spending a few hours reminiscing and sharing memories with old friends. Such a great way to spend the day! This …

The weekend is knocking on the door and I, for one, am answering. I cut out a bit early today to spend a couple of days in the Adirondacks with some of my oldest and dearest pals. Please rest assured there will be far more board games played, hikes taken, and scary movies watched than is probably acceptable and I will be loving every minute. Here’s hoping you have a fabulous weekend – see you back here next week for …
