      Thanks, Leslie! That was my daughter-in-law’s great idea. Her name is Lesley, too! She also had some wonderful brunch ideas you can see on the Blood Orange Mimosa link.

      I like your blog, and will be checking in with you!

    Lesley prepared a beautiful brunch for us with lots of options. Little did she know, we would have been happy with only the mimosas. 😉
