Hey, friends! I just got in from pruning my front flower bed that we put in this year (you can follow along on the progress on Instagram), and I can officially say that it feels like the Dog Days of Summer are here! We’ve also had a lot of rain, making our green babies grow […]

Frozen Hot Chocolate

You can probably easily find this recipe in the abyss that is the internet, however, I’d like to think I made it up…I was watching a Youtube video by CTFxC, and Alli mentioned how she’d had frozen hot chocolate in the past. Instantly my mind was like “oh, how would you make that?” Two minutes […]

Coming off of vacation the week after is somehow a little difficult getting back into your usual routine. This week has been no exception! I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels they lack sleep the week after, right? My suitcase hasn’t even been fully unpacked yet. It’s successfully just sitting there in the […]
