We went and saw @ironandwinetour last night for the fourth time & I still have no words. I mean there were freakin clouds, people. CLOUDS! โ˜๏ธ Sam Beam will forever be one of my favorite musicians. And his band... donโ€™t even get me started. Such a fun evening with @karenmorphy & @joshre โœจ

Woke up this morning feeling so loved! There were so many amazing things about last night (like this cheese board ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿคค ...I mean come on). Beautiful table settings, wonderful friends, such yummy food. But what made me feel the most cherished was the love I felt as @joshre @aendriu & @iamthebassplayr prepared an insanely delicious meal for me, in such a beautiful home, in the company of dear friends. Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with me! I love you all so dearly. My heart is so full!! โ˜บ๏ธ

Today for lunch I made a salad with mixed spring greens, black beans, sweet bell pepper, yellow cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and a homemade salsa dressing! SO. GOOD. I'm trying to step up my salad game after eating some salads from @chloevictoriagall & @livdeyoung (salad queens ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ). I've gotten so tired of greens with a balsamic dressing & parmesan cheese ๐Ÿ™„ so I decided to get more creative with what's in my pantry!  #leilacooksfood

TO MAKE โ€“
Grab a couple handfuls of salad greens, cook some black beans, dice up your veggies (bell pepper & tomatoes), and crumble your favorite hard cheese โ€“ cojita, feta, parmesan. For the dressing I took a dollop of ranch dressing and whisked in some spicy red salsa and a sweet green tomatillo salsa @joshre made this weekend! Add it all together in a bowl and you've got yourself lunch! (or dinner ๐Ÿ˜‰)

This weekend in Gualala with @iamthebassplayr @aendriu & @joshre was one of my favorite weekends of this year. So good to get away and eat amazing food surrounded by redwoods with some of my favorite people (and a camp kitten ๐Ÿฏ) ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฒ

Alright, so maybe I won't miss the heat of summer... but I will definitely miss being able to grill outside. And the peaches. Definitely the peaches... โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅ—

This week was the best up in Tahoe with my family. So many games of spoons, corn hole, ate my first ribs, Josh sat in butter, celebrating the lives of some of my favorite people, amazing food, fishing, floating, star gazing, kayaking out to Lake Tahoe, and finishing it off tonight with s'mores. I love my family so much & I am so happy we had the chance to get away together โค๏ธ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ (also, some of these photos are hilarious, so please feel free to zoom in)
