Hello, hello friends! Oh, and, hello August! Where did you come from!?
This weekend was all kinds of summer! I didn’t snap a ton of photos but I did chronicle some of the most important parts!
**Friday night baseball game with peanut butter swirl ice cream. Ummm..yes.
**Blue moon. Well, not blue…but full and beautiful.
**Family reunion…each year, my mom’s cousin, Walter, holds our annual reunion. My grandma’s side of the family is huge (she is one of 12 children) and it’s always such a wonderful time when we can all get together. We have cousins that come from all over the country. Walt’s house is gorgeous and he has a ton of grapevines in his backyard because he makes wine for a local winery. Family + Wine = Best.Time.Ever.
**Sunday morning breakfast on the porch..so relaxing and my favorite thing to do!
**We have tree growth! Father’s Day weekend, I transported a mimosa tree from my grandparents’ house to mine and planted it with the hopes that it would thrive and do well. The first few weeks were touch and go and I wasn’t sure it as going to make it. While I hated all the rain we had gotten all summer, I am thankful, now, that we had it because I think it was a huge benefit to my little tree! A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a ton of new growth at the bottom of the trunk. I snapped some pictures to show my grandma…and, she told me she was really happy that was happening because she really didn’t think the tree would make it. Ummm…what happened to your family always believing in you!?
**Monday morning breakfast prep!…oats with Greek yogurt, soymilk, protein powder, chia seeds, and cinnamon.
I hope you all enjoy your Monday! Let’s make this week a good one, shall we!?
Something to share: Does your family have reunions? Do you like baseball?…I love our Pittsburgh Pirates! Did you do anything fun this weekend?
