Life Lessons Lately: Enjoying the little things.


Hi friends!! Summer time is the best time. Honestly, can we just have summer forever? I’m not sure if its because this winter was so cold, or if its because we’re getting closer to our wedding, whatever it might be I have been just loving this summer so much. We had a super busy few months February to June. It made for a crazy Spring, but it has also made for a lovely July. Our calendar had been packed, but July has truly been lovely. Yes, we are still busy, but busy with great things…Ugh, cocktails at the beer garden?

The answer is three. and snacks if you’re lucky. Tuesday, on the other hand, was the unicorn of the week.

4th of July Sips: Sour Cherry Sparklers!

4th of July Sips! Sour Cherry Sparklers! Yes, yes…I know, the Fourth of July has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t share a little treat with you all! We had a relatively low key 4th this year because I was on-call/working the whole weekend so that meant we couldn’t go too far from home. Luckily, we are fortunate to have our really good friends living super close to the city, but with the benefit of their amazing backyard.
