Female Fancy

So it’s been a week since my sweetie left the country and I can’t lie: it’s been tough now and again living alone in the apartment we made our own. But it’s also times like last night that remind me the joy of being a female, living the life you want, and good food. My friend Kelli made these delicious spring rolls with raw marinated mushrooms, cooked eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, and herbs with two fabulous dipping sauces, paired with a fizzy gin cocktail including her from scratch-made rosemary simple syrup. Great conversation, silliness, and brainstorming innovative life plans with the girls over delicious cuisine never made me feel so welcoming of my own independence.

A quote from the night Kelli didn’t want to forget.
