Happy weekend friends! Summer is officially in full swing, though for many of us it might not feel like it just yet if we’re still cautiously quarantining.

On our end we’ve been enjoying smaller gatherings now that Scotland has started to open back up.

Last weekends birthday party was so much fun! It was just six of us total out on the large terrace and there was lots of grilling (the Korean-style ribs were especially yummy) and my husband was once again called upon to put his outstanding cocktailing skills to use. He made some Pisco Sours that the birthday boy and the rest of us loved.

We also played Codenames, which if you haven’t played it yet, you’re missing out.
