BRIMFUL PHOTOGRAPHY

 Our goal is to live life fully, celebrate the little things, and inspire others to do the same. Whether that means finding fulfillment in climbing every mountain or simply climbing out of bed in the morning; to be content in all situations, to pursue kindness, and to find the magic in the mundane.

The Bee's Knees

The Bee's Knees

IN California, there was this bar called Sidecar that I loved going to with my gal pal Lauren, who was also my musical other-half and band-mate in the band Scouts Honor.

Sometimes before practice, we would go to Happy Hour and snag some of the most delicious cocktails; my favorite one was called the Jalapeno Bees Knees. Despite being terrified of bees, I sure love the things they do. For example, bees throw up honey; that's pretty amazing. If I threw up honey, I might not hate throwing up so much.

I've been missing these afternoon times with my friend, so I looked up the recipe,  and was excited to see it was super easy to make.

And because this drink will forever make me think of the short (and hopefully not completely concluded) time we were playing as Scouts Honor, here's the first song Lauren and I wrote together. The day before this video was recorded, actually.
