I hope the calendar is wrong and we aren’t really in the middle of July already! That’s just insane! But I’ve been keeping busy, running around (uh, driving around), going crazy in the archives and reshooting so many old recipes so I can continue updating one a week even when school starts back up, drinking so much iced coffee, and enjoying every bit of summer (storms and all!). It’s really just a lazy summer, but that’s okay. I have a feeling this coming school year will be crazy. Must enjoy the “no responsibilities” mindset while I can!
I’ve also been meeting up with my mom on Thursdays during her lunch hour for a little “coffee date”. We usually go and get some DD, go for a walk, talk, etc. I always look forward to stopping by for a little quality time every week (yesterday I brought some Enjoy Life chocolate chip muffins for the office!) before I have to go back to school and “leave the nest” again!
On to what you came (clicked) here for…the links! Happy Friday and have a fabulous summer weekend! xoxo
