Happy Tuesday, everyone: it’s Stephie!
Pat, thanks for your kind words and your oh-so-warm southern welcome. I am over-the-moon-slap-me-me-silly-writing-home excited by this opportunity!!!
The question I’ve been asking myself is what should I write in my first post, and my answer is MOJITOS, of course.
Four years ago, I tweeted an almost Every. Single. Friday. an invitation to join me, @KindredBelle, for virtual mojitos on the ‘porch’, and Pat has joined me almost every Friday for four, FOUR years, people; we’ve got some serious history! See Pat’s post here for the rest of the story.
We’re extending the invitation to YOU!
Christy from 11MagnoliaLane.com graciously permitted me to share her Mojitos recipe with you.
