no amount of whiskey

no amount of wine




We lost an incredible friend and adopted member of our Raleigh family this weekend. We all loved her local Food Stalking and following her Peace Corps adventures over at ‘Oh by the ‘Guay’!! She was always so excited to have her posts included in the blog 🙂


A beautiful person, an amazing spirit, a true friend, and a laugh that never be replaced.


All of our love.
