Anniversary Cocktails

Time flies when you’re having fun! Chad and I have been married for three wonderful years today. This past year has been an adventure for us. We made the move to North Carolina from Chicago, Chad started a new job and I completed my master’s degree. It has been a wild ride, but we are stronger than ever. I want to thank Chad for his endless love and support. I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us! I love you.

Katie & Chad 3rd Anniversary

While we were on our honeymoon, we visited France for a few days. We enjoyed the culture and of course champagne. To celebrate our anniversary this year, we made a batch of French 75 cocktails. They are tasty and potent!
