Here’s a recap of our anniversary cake and my Dry Farm Wines review!
The cake that keeps on giving! We decided to freeze half for our anniversary next year and had some of it with Mazen as a special treat our first night home.
Passionfruit, raspberries and vanilla custard! (We also had a chocolate layer!) Delish!
So what’s been going on in normal life?

Dry Farm Wines Review
My friend Emily sent me an article about Dry Farm Wines, which is an organic, all-natural wine club. This is what they promise:
I am relaxed about the wines I drink, and I’m not going to quibble over sugar content or carbs.
However, Dry Farm Wines promises HANGOVER-FREE wine. That is something I was excited to read! In reality, I wanted to prove them wrong and drink so much that I got a hangover because hangovers are caused by dehydration, right?
Emily and I inquired about ordering a bottle or two to try, but they only offer it by the case. (Luckily they were nice enough to send me a bottle to try in exchange for a mention here!)
Our Wine Review
We liked the wine a lot. It was dry, with touches of leathery red fruit, and guess what – no hangovers! However, to be fair, we had to SHARE the bottle, so we didn’t do a fair experiment to test our tolerances! 🙂 The wines are a bit too expensive for me to buy regularly, but I totally appreciate that they are organic, low in sulfites, and lab tested for high standards of purity. They’d make a great gift for a health nut! Try Dry Farm Wines here. And check out this post on how to store wine.
Online Design Review
As much as I like decorating, I sometimes lack the confidence to make bigger decisions. I flip flop between minimalism and the perfect styled look that you see in magazines. You know, the coffee table that is covered but the items still look neat? I have very little art on my walls because it makes me feel cluttered. Sometimes I think I just need a decorator! But, I don’t want to spend more than a few hundred dollars on design because I don’t have lots of dollars that are sitting around. Sometimes I just want to get an expert’s suggestion on one thing, not a whole room. I read an article in Better Homes & Gardens about some online design services, like Laurel and Wolf and Havenly, and am considering doing one of their smaller design packages. I’m curious if any of you have used an online design service before?
