3 Steps to Recover From a Bad Day

A Farewell to Summer Tablescape: Charcuterie Picnic on the Beach


I've been seeing a little trend of Charcuterie tables going around on instagram, which actually stemmed from when Sazan made one back in January 2019 (how genius?! A dinner party without the cooking!). Then everyone else started to follow. And I wanted to make one too LOL.

I thought it would be the perfect place to bid summer farewell and enjoy the salty air and the ocean breeze one last time.
