We took to the road to drive through the vast mountains of the Sierra Gorda, a region north of Queretaro city. Some of the roads took us high into the clouds, as the road wound in hairpin turns through misty little villages. This is an archeological site from the 5th century, the ruins of Las Ranas.
This Paperfinger menu was featured in the current issue of Rue Magazine. The story, “Magic in the Secret Garden,” was directed and styled by Lavender Joy Weddings (thanks Stefanie!) and shot by Ryan Ray. Florals by Bows & Arrows, dinnerware from Greta Bean. I’m so happy with how it all came together.

It’s such a beautiful space and they produce some of the most elegant stationery you can find. Come visit! Have a Red Snapper while you’re there — the birthplace of the bloody mary, mmmm.

Spent the other weekend in Bend, Oregon hiking around Smith Rock State Park where we watched crazy/impressive rock climbers repel down from “Monkey Face” rock; skiing and trekking at Mount Bachelor and the necessary face-plant of a nap after it was all over. Beautiful place!
(Pictures by us; and yes, got a bit filter happy with my new Snapseed app)
