I've been wanting to hang a Food & Drink gallery in my kitchen since we moved in almost three years ago. A few weeks ago, I actually followed through! Yes, it's a little crooked and off center. The gallery needs a little fine-tuning but I've gotten a few inquiries about the photos themselves so I thought I'd share them with you.

Almost all of them were taken in my kitchen at different times. The strawberries were taken at my parents' house the morning of my sister's wedding and the first shot was taken at my in-laws' house. My husband's uncle actually grew all of those vegetables. The cake is from our wedding, one year later.

I also want to take a quick second to discuss photo printing. It makes such a huge difference to print in a lab vs Walgreen's or Target. I did a test run at Target because I was in a hurry- big mistake and a total waste of time. The photo was so blotchy, it looked like someone had colored it in with a Sharpie. Please, take the time and a few extra pennies and go to a lab.

I hope you like them!
