June has flown right on by and I’ve barely had time to tend to our garden, let alone share any updates on its progress! I got a pretty late start on getting things in the ground this year, compared to the past couple of years, and was so worried that we’d have little-to-no starts to choose from and that what we did plant wouldn’t be able to catch up and be ready to harvest before the first frosts of fall.
Those who know me, know that my love of donuts runs deep. They’re my favorite sweet treat. I can’t visit a new city or bakery without hunting down their donut options, and rarely ever do I sink my teeth into one I don’t love.
A week ago today, I was sat upon a step stool in the flickering fluorescent light of our recently torn-apart-for-renovations kitchen, while a storm raged outside. Water was leaking in from all sides of our basement foundation, and there was a small but steady stream dripping into our bedroom from a caved in portion of the roof in our attic, which I’d discovered only moments before.
There’s nothing quite like that feeling of quenching super dry lips, am I right? Especially that moment when, after they’ve been bothering you for hours and you were without lip balm on hand to soothe them, you finally get to swipe on the relief! Ahhh.
I’ve had a desire to visit the Deep South for most of my life. Growing up in the United States, it’s almost impossible to not be regularly surrounded by movies, music, literature, art, and history that is inspired by, or linked to, this region of our country.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! How exciting is it that it falls on a Friday this year? Since, let’s face it, it’s going to be a weekend-long event for many of us, we thought we’d share one of the simplest recipes we’ve come across to-date, for one of the most delicious meals, that you can enjoy all weekend long and maybe for Taco Tuesday, too.
There’s no doubt about it: spring is definitely in the air! A mix of scents from early blooms, freshly cut grass and tilled earth, rain, first-of-the-year bonfires. And let us not forget the unescapable pollen everywhere. Yes, it sure smells like spring out there.
