We're so into winter now that it hurts. Literally. My hands hurt from biking. But thinking about what's can still grow under greenhouse glass and seeing the dents left from warm bodies sleeping, allows me to STILL romanticize the season.
I dream of being able to afford this bedding. It's by Matteo in LA. Such beautiful styling and photography.
And right before we crawl into bed we drink Brandy Milk Punch and when we rise we have a Salted Mint Lassi... I dream.

Put the brandy, milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and ice cubes into a blender and blend for 20 seconds.
Strain into glasses of crushed ice and serve.Salted Mint Lassi
