Hi friends! Happy Sunday!
How is your weekend going? I got back last night from Canada and spent the last few hours of the day eating a steak dinner with Kyle and watching a new Netflix series called Reign. It has really good reviews on Netflix and is trending, but I’m not sure how much I like it yet as, like my mom says, it’s a bit unrealistic. However, I do like shows backed with at least some historical context, so I might keep the show as a background for when I’m editing photos. Here’s a bit more on the plot:
“In 1557, The Young Queen Mary Stuart of Scotland arrives to France accompanied by her four best friends and Ladies-in-waiting. She is to be engaged with Prince Francis II to get the French in an alliance needed to protect Scotland. However, things between Mary and Francis are not simple and, although they are attracted to eachother, Francis remains hesitant to keep his life, and have his affaires. Sebastian, Francis’ half-brother, complicates matters when he starts falling for Mary. This, together with King Henry’s infidelity, makes Queen Catherine De’Medici seek help from the seer Nostradamus. He scares her with a prophecy about her son’s death, she becomes determined to save Francis’ life at any cost. Conspiracy, sabotage, mystery and sex show the details of the French Court as Mary learns to deal with each and every one.”
Today involves meeting with a lovely couple for their wedding consultation and photographing my first engagement sessions of 2016. Then, I’ll be making the drive back up North to Santa Barbara for my last winter quarter.
But anyways, back on topic! I’m popping in quickly today to share this recipe (if it can even be called that…) for the best latte I’ve ever had. I didn’t have the intentions of ever posting it since it’s so simple, but I ended up feeling inspired to photograph it since I had some wildflowers + pretty morning light. Lately, taking photos of food has felt more like a chore than something I want to do, so I wanted to capitalize on creating for creation’s sake and I absolutely love how the photos turned out. Simple, clean, and pretty.
So what makes this simple latte so special? The magic ingredient just involves a touch of honey in your latte and BOOM. It is perfectly sweet and just beyond delicious. My uncle first introduced us to the wonders of honey in lattes during Christmas Eve, and I’ve been having trouble drinking them any other way. Once you know the joys of honey lattes, you can’t go back!
