Hi friends! I’m recently back from a week in Wilmington, NC. In addition to seeing most of Brian’s extended family and spending several days away from my to do list, we exposed Baby E to the ocean for the first time (she loved it!) and played lots of board games. It was a really good trip.
Now I’m trying to embrace the remainder of summer for all its possibilities. Yesterday we went on our annual blueberry picking trip to Mountain View Farm in Lanesborough. There’s currently 9 pounds of berries spread out on our dining room table; I’m open to suggestions for their uses. I’m also in full-blown caprese salad mode, given the tomatoes we were able to pick up at the farm this week.
I’ve been increasingly active on Instagram lately and having a lot of fun with the Stories feature. Click here to follow me and see what I’m enjoying and cooking!
Can we talk about how colorful this week’s pick up was?
