Happy Friday!

With yesterday being National Wine Day and today starting the Memorial Day weekend (unofficial start to summer right?!), I’m in a fabulous mood. Let’t keep it short and sweet and head straight for the favorites!

What’s in My Beach/Pool/Lake Bag

Summer’s here and it’s time to break out the beach bags! Here’s what I keep in my bag all year long (I grab this for beach vacations too!)

Herb Garden

Planted a few herbs this week, plus another tomato plant. I was so happy with my tomato plant last year that I decided to take the next step and add more plants lol. I may still add some more!

I stumbled upon this hashtag this week and it made me smile. I don’t know why I find shots of teacups adorable 🙂

Exploring the Capital Region

I’ll be traveling local this weekend and after last weekend, I’m excited to find some new spots to enjoy.

I emailed you this morning.

Thank you to everyone who entered. I’m happy to spread the summer cheer!

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy memorial day weekend! I’m challenging myself to take a break from the blog and social media for the 3 days, so I’ll see you here Wednesday!

    The pineapple float is super cute. I’ve never seen those tea cups but yes they do make you feel happy. I just followed you on IG thought I already was. Happy weekend!
