My life is awesome. Sometimes I have to smack myself to remember this is all real - I eat and drink for a living, and there is nothing that compares to this as a lifestyle.
It all whizzes by too quickly; I'll have an incredible meal that's bangin' from the appetizers to the conversation to the cocktails and it's forgotten as soon as the next meal rolls around.
Before this summer comes to a close (can you believe it's AUGUST?), I wanted to at least document some of the amazing repasts I've enjoyed just in the last 30 days. I'd love to hear or see pics of what YOUR favorite meal of July was. Tweet me @ECava
and tag it #HDMoment so I can see!
Or... come meet me in person Friday night and make new food (and cocktail) memories! Get a ticket for Midnight Brunch

I wish I had done a photo diary in June, too ... I love looking back and remembering where I was when I was eating all these things and remembering the people I share these moments with. Should I do a photo recap like this every month? Let me know in the comments.
