I love this fun link up hosted by Jenna and Anne! Such a fun way to reflect on the season we are in and all that is going on in our lives! Summer is one of my favorite times. While our summers are not as slow as they once were back before adulthood, I still love the slow evenings when Ben comes home, walks at night, lightening bugs, summer rain, and Farmer's Market visits. Everything seems to slightly slow down in the Summer, and I just eat that up! So hear is what is happening in my life currently!
I am currently...
wanting- a Chemex coffee maker. Ah, it looks so cool. yes, I know I already own a French Press, standard coffee maker, and a Keurig...but this coffee maker is different. :) The Chemex is supposed to be a smoother way to brew your coffee. It makes strong, bold coffee that is not bitter. I even heard from a friend that it was so non acidic that she didn't even have to put sugar in it...hello, I need this guy in my life. I am hoping maybe with my birthday coming up I can purchase one...or better yet have it gifted to me...hint, hint, to all my friends out there! :)
wearing- Stripes, stripes, and more stripes. I have been living in basic slouchy tees all day every day. Throw one on with jeans, shorts, nikes, a skirt, over a maxi dress...every day my friends! I love this slouchy tee from Anthro. and it is actually not that expensive!!
reading- I have been all about some ebooks lately. From Hayley Morgan's The No Brainer Wardrobe to Jacey Verdicchio's Escaping Reaction, Embracing Intention I am loving reading these books!
cooking- All the blueberry things! Ben and I went and picked blueberries last weekend and we now have over a gallon of fresh blueberries...so needless to say I have been throwing them into everything! Next up, blueberry sweet rolls. Homemade sweet rolls are my favorite, and in my opinion the best way to kick off a weekend! :)
loving- Of course I am loving my sweet Piper girl. She is getting bigger which makes me sad, but seriously is still the cutest thing in the whole world. She loves to wrestle with us, lick the baseboards, and pee upon the arrival of guests (we are working on that one). She is my little cuddly fur ball, so what is not to love?!
drinking- Strawberry Lemonade... nothing says summer like homemade lemonade, and then on top of that, strawberry lemonade is the next best if not better drink! I love making this and sitting on the porch with a mason jar full of this sweet stuff!
What have you been up to lately?
