Oh how I have missed you blog!  I am sorry it took so long to get a new post it.

A lot has happened. We packed up our renting ways, bought a house and I immediately landed a new job upon arrival.  I say this calls for a toast!  Luckily, my new friend in town Becca from the fabulous Rebecca Rose Events, and creator of the inspiring Ever Lovely Blog {you're welcome} took me out for a cocktail my first week!

She took me downtown to Tate's Craft Cocktails.  It's a swanky little bar in downtown Winston-Salem. The moment I stepped inside I felt like I had stepped into a SpeakEasy in 1920s New York.

If there were tables available we would have sat outside and enjoyed the cool summer night. Just walking by the patio, I forgot I was in North Carolina and not Miami or Havanna.

And ultimately the menu full of hand crafted tasty cocktails remind us of the four reasons for drinking:
  • the arrival of a friend
  • one’s present or future thirst
  • the excellence of the drink
  • or any other reason.
Hey, maybe I could redesign that!

Luckily right before we left Alabama, I was asked to redesign just that.  The client wanted a classy, upscale cocktail party invite.  Her reason for an invite falls into one of the 4 reasons-one's present or future thirst.  Instead of doing the traditional graphic of cocktail glasses we kept the look more realistic, added a custom monogram and scripted font.  {details have been changed to protect the innocent!}

Thirsty?  Come visit me at my new house and I'll take you to Tate's Craft Cocktails  afterall it would be the arrival of a friend!
