Summer Clambake in the City from Fourteen-Forty

The idea of a clambake has always been incredibly appealing to me, but the fact that I don't live near the ocean has been a bit of a deterrent.

I e-met Janie Medley about 6 and a half years ago. She was launching The Bride's Cafe and I was plugging along with Style Me Pretty. And through the 6 years, we've sort of grown up together.
