Good morning! How was your week? Mine was great, we had friends in town this week so in between work we squeezed time with them at the beach, and enjoying long dinners and laughs.  I have big plans for the weekend on my paddle board so hopefully the weather will be nice. 



Summer is a time for lazy days and easy dinners, this Grilled Lemon Cream Pasta from A Dish of Daily Life seems like a perfect meal.

As doe this Bulgar Wheat Salad with Cherries, Feta and Pistachio. If you are looking for more easy salads check out my post summer salads you want to make now, they are all easy and delicious. 

Camille Styles

Every weekend my husband and I end the day reading and relaxing with a cocktail on the front porch, typically I have a Blush Lily, (you can find the recipe here) but I do like to try new things and I think this, Frose from Camille Styles looks like an excellent drink to try.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Fudge Brownie Ice Cream Cake! If you like chocolate brownies, cookies, cakes and more check out my other blog Once Upon A Chocolate Life for recipes.

I am a huge fan of individuality and interesting design and decor which is sometimes hard to find in this day and age but this Gorgeous Kitchen featured on Greige Design is right up my alley. 

Interesting Reading

I love hydrangeas, unfortunately I do not have any in my yard, only in containers on my porch. If you would like to learn more about their care check out this post from My Sweet Savannah.

I am a huge fan of Marc&Angel Hack Life and this post 12 Notes to Self About the Hard Things You Need to do to be Happy is one of their best. 


Quote: "Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles that we have and offer thanks for all of the troubles we don't have." 

If you like quotes you can see more of them on my Pinterest board Wit, Wisdom and Inspiration or on Between Sisters Between Friends a quote blog. 


I love these ikat Soludos, don't you?

I hope that you have a wonderful and safe weekend. As always, please share your recipes, books, podcasts and whatever else you found interesting this week!
