Summer couscous salad   sundaysuppers

A rope swing is my ultimate summer fantasy.
I know, I know.....
It's technically not summer for about another month....

But I feel so inspired by these images that I've pinned to my Summery Pinterest board that I have to share them with you now. Because I really, really want to:

~make this Strawberry Cheesecake from Creature Comforts
~wade through 60 Summer Activities for Kids
~paint a bright mural on our fence with Miss Julia (via Apartment Therapy)
~eat corn couscous salad (recipe from Sunday Suppers)
~try my hand at these divine looking mini peach pies I saw over at Coeur de La
~read 'The Summer Book' by Tove Jansson (author of my beloved Moomin books)
~and imbue our summer with the vibe that comes from this extraordinary picture. (via Earl Grey Skies)

(As you can see, a lot of my summer fun revolves around food. And books. Oh -- Julia and I are rip roaring excited to see this movie. She wants her own bow and arrow! I love that Princess Merida is now her favorite heroine.)


  1. The mural on the fence. Fantastic! Now I must find a fence to paint! The neighbors won't mind, right?

    1. Isn't that great? I think your neighbors should thank you if you and the girlies made them something beautiful :)

  2. Why not paint on the fence??? I love that so much! and did you know that you're constantly making me hungry over here? Oh I love peaches so much... peach season is my favorite :)

    1. A great peach is hands down, my favorite fruit. I can't wait for peach season! I love food, I make myself hungry as well, hee hee :)

  3. I agree with Robyn, both your sites always make me hungry!! You're a closet food blogger :). Ok, Brave!! Can't wait either-- except I am trying to decide if cuteness is old enough to go in and sit through the whole movie (because once she starts wandering, what's the point?). I seem to be the one that has babysitting duty while the older girls get a date with daddy. Maybe I'll try to switch that this time.

    1. Oh my goodness Whitney you are more right than you know -- I was REALLY torn when I started blogging whether or not I wanted to just have it be food, but I figured there were already so many (ha like there aren't just so many blogs in general) -- but I've basically turned this into a strange hybrid blog assortment of topics anyway -- I get bored with stuff quickly and I can't just talk about any ONE thing!

      When J is older the 'book' part of this blog is probably going to turn into 'cookbook'!


Comments TOTALLY make my day! Let's keep everything friendly and polite and 'use our tea party manners :)
