Currently, I am...

getting books organized for the fall

encouraging the kids to read

obsessing over my favorite pasta salad

celebrating my husband's birthday with grilled steak and cookies and cream cake

seeing kids off to soccer camp

coaxing chickens to lay eggs

baking sour cream country muffins

smitten with newborn kittens

admiring the poppies on the roadside

craving kale with my eggs in the morning

still so thankful we bought the kids a trampoline

baking monster cookies and playing movie theatre with the kids

celebrating Dylan's 17th birthday with root beer floats.

sitting around doing nothing

staying up late

taking naps

writing product reviews

wearing a sweatshirt

enjoying all the thunderstorms we've had

hoping you are having a great summer so far!


  1. What a lovely update!
    Blessings, Dawn

  2. I could say a million things about all these pictures... but I will just say that first picture of what is probably your school room is so sweet and inviting! I want to spend some time in there!

  3. Thank you! ❤️

    I loved it at the beginning of June, but now that the trees are all leafed out, it's dark in there and I miss the sun shining through the windows. I guess it keeps it nice and cool though. ☺️

  4. I wish I could organize myself to make posts like these. The best I can remember to do is to share individual Instagram posts. :)

  5. See, and I am not as good at posting on IG because, well, it's instant. But, all my photos go through my phone and I access them from Google Photos when I post. This helps me stay organized and easily share photos, as long as I can do it later. :)

  6. I can't believe that Dylan's already 17! Have you really been sharing pics of him for that long? I guess so :)

  7. I can't believe it either. :) That he's 17 or that I'm still blogging, LOL. :)
