Friday Favorites from Heather Bullard, Recipe Runner, the Kitchn, the Simple Luxurious Life and More

Good morning! Happy Friday! How was your 4th of July? Mine was great, except for the sun burn. My husband and I were supposed to go for  a short walk with friends at the beach, and to see the cute place they rented for a month before their return home to Spain. Then we were going to go home to do a few things around the house and a little work before burgers on the grill and the fireworks.

Lucky for us that went by the wayside because that short walk ended up being 8 miles with no sun screen, hence the sun burn and no water. Upon our exhausted return the house we had some fresh squeezed lemonade and then moved on to Sangria at which point our friends pointed out that none of us had eaten so they whipped up a  beautifully prepared paella. We wiled away the rest of the day talking, laughing and enjoying one another' company before returning home burt, tired and just in time for the fireworks. Sometimes the best days are the ones not planned.

  1. Peaches are so good right now and so easy to mix up in different recipes. If we could ever nail the multi colors of a peach in interior design...we'd be in heaven!

  2. Never a fun thing to wind up with a sunburn.

  3. Your food photos always intrigue me. They look delicious!

  4. OMG! 8 miles in the sun! I hope you had water! I'm happy you enjoyed a great rest of the day and delicious food.

    These recipes sound inspiration!


  5. The food looks amazing and the Lime, Cucumber Agua Fresca looks perfect in this heat wave! SuitsMen
