Nesting on this muggy and stormy weekend in June.

Whew this month has been a whirlwind. We have 3 birthdays in our family this month, Father’s Day, and all the end of the year things like field day, and moving up ceremonies. The kids are almost done with school. We end late this year but only a few more days left! We are ready for summer that is for sure!


This weekend we got to celebrate my sweet nephew’s 1st birthday. They live in Connecticut right near the golf course that hosts the PGA Traveler’s Championship every year so of course it was a golf theme. And we got to see and meet some of the golfers.

      Hi Michelle! It’s definitely dark and some parts were difficult to watch but if you’re fascinated by that stuff it’s really interesting!

    That is so very cool that you got to go to the golf tournament and meet some of the golfers. That is a huge W.

    The 2 first salads look amazing! I need to make more salads this summer! I am back to making yogurt after a couple months break and today, I made zucchini bread. The end of the school year was incredibly busy and we went on vacation the 1st two weeks of summer. Now it is time for a more relaxed summer and short day or weekend trips.
