One of my favorite things to do when my husband is traveling is to get lost in a good book! I can stay up way too late reading and not feel bad about it at all! I recently read The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. If you're looking for a book that will keep you hooked, you will love this book!
It's no secret that I love to bake around here. It is just something that I find so relaxing. Even if the baked goods don't turn out super pretty, they usually still tastes yummy. While planning a fun dessert brunch, I decided on making a Lemon Meringue pie and a French Strawberry Cake. I had tons of fun making these two thing, especially with a cute little helper beside me. I was surprised how easily the Lemon Meringue came together. It was the perfect summer pie. And the Strawberry cake was pure perfection. It is so good, you can't stop with just one slice. So of course I couldn't keep all this goodness to myself. I needed to share with you all this...
If you love a Jane Austin type of book you will love Edenbrooke! The story moves along quickly and you can’t help but fall in love with all the characters. So if you a looking for the perfect summer read, do yourself a favor and go and check out this book from the library. You won’t regret it! You might just end up reading it once or twice... or five times lol!
Its no secret that we love flowers over here. But I have to let you in on a little secret.. I have never really had my own garden let alone flower patch. Especially one that I have kept alive. So I decided to do some research. Enter in my new latest obsession. All the Cut Flower Garden books... I know that we still have a ways to go for it to become the full garden area that I dream it can be. But I am loving it and I am loving that we are finally becoming gardeners.
