Punch by David Wondrich is a very well researched book on the origins of Punch (capital p on purpose) and contains many wonderful, historical recipes for real Punch, not the super sweet, sherbet floating, neon colored stuff we drink at receptions these days. But the cover offered up the quintessential punch pink hue and I ran with it. And if we're drinking Punch we'd better have on a fabulous party dress. Toss in a few nautical references as thanks to the sailors who most likely brought Punch's ancestor home to England for further tinkering and perfection and we've got the outfit I wish I could rock to the next Spring wedding I get invited to.

I personally think of myself as an eccentric, nerdy, introverted 20-something. I like books, video games, the internet (duh), baked goods (pretty non-discriminatory about what type), Doctor Who, my husband, and my cat, killer shoes, action movies and hot and/or alcoholic beverages to relax with.
