love this party idea - let guests build their own gourmet toasts!

It’s been a big week for our team… mostly because Chanel got engaged!!! Her boyfriend Eric popped the question on Friday and we all celebrated maybe a little too late last night. Chanel has been my righthand woman behind the blog for the past 5 years (I hired her as my first ever intern when she was still in college) and is really more like a sister to me than a co-worker. And since everyone who’s ever met Eric immediately adores him, it really just couldn’t be a happier time. Also of note this week, we launched our new video series! Hop over and check it out if you haven’t already — we’d love to hear what you think of the new format. Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and staying warm wherever you are, and enjoy my favorite links from around the web this week! xo
