Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer!

After the never ending winter (like snow in April!), it’s finally time to get outside! 

I’m thinking cookouts, bonfires & s’mores!

To kick off the long weekend, here are some links to things I wrote in the past to get you excited for summer:

- Planning a road trip?  I love using Roadtrippers to find the best hidden gems along the way!

- This summer punch is the coolest drink you can find!

- My mom’s pineapple upside down cake will be perfect for all those potlucks this summer!

-  Need more potluck ideas?  Here’s a ton of them!

- My classic lemonade is always a refreshing drink to cool down to!

- For something more boozy, my watermelon sangria is a crowd pleaser!

- I love s’mores & these 10 irresistible recipes take them to the next level!

Have a great & safe weekend!

PS:  For even more inspiration, check out my Pinterest page!  I have boards dedicated to drinks & potluck food & I’m always pinning new things over there!

Spring blooms

Aaand just like that, I’ve returned to blogging!

I wish I could say that I was ‘OMG!  Too busy to blog!’, but I wasn’t.

I just wasn’t feeling it anymore.

The dark depths of winter crawled in & took any creativeness that I had.  Now that the weather is warming up & it’s so nice outside, I feel my creative side creeping back in.  I guess it’s time to get off Reddit & dust my camera off!  Spring/summer is here!

So here’s what to expect on the blog in the near future:

- Spring blooms:  I cannot get enough!  Fruit blossoms have got to be my favorite thing to photograph right now!

- Instant Pot:  I recently bought an Instant Pot & it has taken over my life.  I love how I can cook things so fast!

- Random Life Posts:  I want to get back into writing random life posts again.

- Gardening:  It’s almost time to get the garden ready!  I have big plans for my 2018 garden that I can’t wait to talk about!

Aaand that’s all I can think of right now!

If you want to see something on the blog, let me know!  I’m always on the lookout for inspiration!
