Full Bloom

12 Jun

Summer has always been my favorite. And this one is no exception!

Our succulents are doing so well this year. I am so thankful for the rain.  It has made for cooler temperatures and growing plants.

I have done some experimental baking the last few weeks. The first attempt was to make Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes. I saw that Ruby from Cakies made them and decided to take a chance! They won’t be my go to recipe, but they were so much better than I expected!

The second sweet treat was to make Kate’s Rhubarb Pie. (Kate is the wife of our friend and wedding photographer- Lang. They met for the first time during our wedding weekend. And the rest is history!) I had never tried rhubarb anything so I didn’t really have high expectations. But we are major fans now! Ryan said this might be his favorite pie! If you haven’t given rhubarb a chance, now is the time! photo4  Last Friday, I went exploring with a friend for a collaboration project we hope to do and found this gorgeous home in the middle of a small town:

Isn’t it magical? We also ran into a 400 mile yard sale and got these goodies:YardSaleWe have been enjoying the outdoors by attending Hot Rods games, Monday Burger night on the square, lots of porch sittin’, card nights to the tune of Justin Timberlake, softball matches and good laughs with our friends. Bowling Green is the perfect place to enjoy summer and I am grateful that we have the chance.

    Everything in here is dreamy. Hooray for sweet summers.

    Thanks for the shout out too. I’m all about some rhubarb awareness 🙂
