Let’s Dish // Happy Birthday S&P!

I can hardly believe it, but today is the four year anniversary of the very first post on this site!  I’m blown away by how drastically the entire blogging community has changed during that time, and feel so lucky to be a tiny part of something that has had such an impact on the fashion and lifestyle industries.

I was daydreaming this morning about throwing a great big party to celebrate YOU for being a part of the Style & Pepper community… Would be such a treat to have each and every one of you sitting around a nice long table in a bug-free twinkle-lit backyard somewhere, just eating and chatting and sipping and laughing into the night.

I’d make this summer staple for dinner and you’d have to seconds of this treat for dessert.

We’d wear breezy dresses and wrap cozy linen blankets around our shoulders if the night gets chilly.

The drinks would be generously poured and we’d sip from frosty copper mugs.

The night wouldn’t be complete without a toast to new friends and old, and everyone would go home with quirky little favors to remember a great evening.

Since it might be kind of hard to make that all happen in the blink of an eye, I’ll just leave you with a ginormous virtual hug and the wish that you have a lovely Summer weekend full of people you love and things that make you smile.

Thank you for stopping by when you do, and here’s to another great year of whatever lies ahead!
