Dining Under Desert Skies

[two_third]Test Image[/two_third][one_third_last]CELEBRATING CANCER STYLE
by Allie Couch

What better way to celebrate this Cancer’s soft, nurturing, feminine energy, than with a little escape to Southern Utah to dine under dramatic desert skies. Cancer is the imaginative muse of the zodiac and an incredibly whimsical character. Al fresco dining seemed the only logical option to match the energy for a dinner celebration themed after this illogical and lunar ruled sign. Our celebration came to life as we set up a low dining area filled with soft pillows, gorgeous floral by Ashley Beyer of Tinge Floral, and small bites—all at an amazing glamping venue (Moab Under Canvas) in the middle of some of the most beautiful desert scenery. Five creative, luminous, and muse-ful ladies to dine with completed the picture. Total bliss! [/one_third_last]






[one_third]Sentimentality is big in Cancer Season and our dinner celebration was not lacking in this attribute. We toasted to our little community of complimentary creative talents that have come together over several years, each of us playing an influential role in creating much of the content that you’ve seen on CosmoMuse. These ladies have become very important in my life, and interestingly enough, have given so much depth to everything Cancer stands for: nurturing, imagination, support, whimsy, and female boding.

A big CosmoMuse toast to: Britt Chudleigh, Tessa Woolf, Lauren Brady, and of course to our two models, Madi Owens & Erin Walsh, who so willingly and graciously jumped on our bandwagon and fit into our imaginative antics like a glove!

Being the zanny nuts we are, we filled three cars to the brink of breaking through windows, battled through torrential rains, and came out the other side with magic and heart. This dinner signified so much more than a fete fit for this whimsical time of year, but as an illumination of just how important it is to celebrate those who lift you up, protect you and nurture your every good quality – and maybe some of your crazy ones too! Because what fun is life without a bit of kooky chaos? [/one_third_last]
