On Saturday I spent the day doing pre-production for some fun photography projects I’m working on. I can’t wait to share them with you! I really love pre-production days – shopping for groceries and props is great, and I love seeing a shoot come together. It’s even nicer when I’m sans kids and can concentrate better on what I’m doing. I must have gone to seven or eight different places, and I stopped at World Market twice! I’d been feeling like I needed to spruce up my prop cupboard for summer anyway, so while I was there I grabbed a bunch of new linens, small bowls, and glassware. But it was at the Asian market, my second-to-last stop, that I came up with an idea for this Cucumber Lime Slush with Thai Basil. And I confess, I am in love, and I want never-ending pitchers of it all summer long.
