Nesting on this beautiful breezy summer Sunday.

Welcome to Nesting! If you are new here, it is a little round up I do with some random thoughts, all of my favorite finds and things that have been happening on the blog. Grab a cup of coffee and come curl up!

As I’m writing this all of the windows are open and it feels like the humidity broke. It feels glorious!

Last week, I went and checked out a new local coffee and cocktail shop. If you’re local to the Albany area, you have to go check out The Scene which just opened in Guilderland. They even have a champagne vending machine!!! It is the cutest space. (Also sharing the link for my cute romper. Mine is a few years old and sold out but this one is very similar!)

It’s been a few weeks but it was a great Prime Day!! You guys came to slay! If you’re curious, this was the top seller.

This is what’s been happening lately on the blog. We talked about:

How to live a tomato Girl Summer. And if you’re keeping track, last summer was the Coastal Grandmother summer, this year they are calling it the Tomato Girl.

– This coastal tray decor and 13 other summer trays to give you some inspiration.

Coming this week:

    Yum! I may have to make that shark week drink. It reminds me of a drink we had in college at a local dive bar. 😂 But dang it was good! Happy Sunday, friend!

    The Scene looks great and doesn’t look too far off 87. We drive through Albany all the time on our way to Vermont. One of these days I’ll have to stop by! Enjoy your week!

    I can’t wait to see the Barbie movie! I shall have to get some friends together to go and see it!
    I love your decor style (the trays you shared, for example) … we’re building our dream home at the moment (we live in Portugal) and we’re going to for that kinda style too! I can’t wait. Sadly, construction takes way more time here than in the States!!
