Well, it's officially summer and I couldn't be happier! The weather has been beautiful and I have a ton of things I am excited to do over the next few months. I have a couple of outdoor projects I hope to complete before Labour day as well as some fun and yummy summer recipes to try!
We are very lucky to live in a beach town where the lake is only a few minutes away. We spend a lot of time walking and biking around the village in the summer, enjoying the beach and local patios. Most of our friends live close by so we are never lonely :)
Now that we have Poppy, we will spend even more time in the backyard so I have some plans to make our yard more inviting. I will share more of these details later :)
I wanted to share some of the food and drink recipes I am excited to try as well as some summer décor inspiration.
Starting in the spring, I start to add elements of colour into my décor pallet and continue this into summer. My mantle has not changed much from Spring but my bar top got a touch of summer. You might not think of summer when you see black and white stripes but I love the classic look along with a kick of colour.
My spare room is also fitting in with the summer vibe!
As I have mentioned before, one of my favourite ways to add seasonal décor is framing prints found online. Here are a few of my favourites;
I am looking forward to shopping the local farmers markets for fresh fruits and veggies and trying different things on the grill.
Let's not forget about the drinks as you always need one in hand while grilling :)
These s'more sticks look ridiculously easy and delicious and I had full intentions of making them last summer but sadly didn't.
I LOVE salt on my watermelon. Add tequila you say? OKAY!!!
I can't wait to try making these puppy popsicles for Poppy!
And cake batter ones for me!! (drool)
We have a busy summer ahead with weddings and me working several weekends a month but will be dedicating lots of time to enjoy the season as it will be over before we know it!! Canada Day is right around the corner so I will be brainstorming some red and white food and drink ideas to celebrate our nation and the long weekend. Stay tuned :)
