mid-week round-up

How’s it going this week? I hope everyone had a restful and joyous holiday weekend. We just cooked a big supper and called it a day (no easter egg hunts, alas) — roast chicken, mac and cheese, green beans, biscuits and 7-layer bars for dessert. Really hoping the never ending rain relents so we can finally, finally start enjoying the great outdoors a bit more. I keep repeating: April showers bring May flowers. Here’s looking at you, May!

mid-week round-up

Hi friends! Did you enjoy the eclipse?? We didn’t have totality (and I didn’t buy the glasses) but it was still a great excuse to go out and frolic in the middle of the day and check out the cool, crescent shadows. Everything felt so still all afternoon. A rarity in Miami. Anyways, I’m getting really excited for Fall. Maybe it’s that back-to-school feeling in the air that has me super excited for new ideas and projects! With that in mind, I set up a READER SURVEY to help me craft upcoming content (and get to know my readers better!). I would be so, so grateful if you would take a few minutes to fill it out. The links will be waitin’ for ya when you get back…
