Scenes from the Summer


It’s hard to believe it’s already mid August. I feel like Memorial Day was mere days ago, yet here we are facing the end of yet another summer season. The summertime always seems to be chock full of fun events, quick vacations, and for me, very little time spent in the kitchen. Cozy nights of baking are few and far between in favor of evening walks with my best friend Anne, or quick adventures to new restaurants and breweries with Eric. So instead of a recipe, today I thought I would share a few photos showing what I’ve been up to these last few months. And not to worry, as soon as the temperatures start to cool, I will find my way back to the kitchen for plenty of new recipes and stories.
