Hello, friends!  Thanks for coming by!

Are you enjoying your summer?  We’ve been really busy the last several weeks, but this weekend we decided that we need to be more intentional about going down to the lake for walks and sunsets.  It’s funny how “life” gets in the way, yet when we lived elsewhere, it was what we missed the most. These warm days will be quickly fading, so we need to make the most of our beautiful summer weather.

What kinds of things are you doing to make your summer special?

One thing that’s fun to do in the summer is cookout!
I just know you’ll want to whip up these fabulous recipes for your family, or your next get-together.  Check out these delicious features shared with us at last week’s edition of Project Inspire{d}!  
 And be prepared to fill up your Pinterest board with fun new recipes.
