Hey friends! It’s been a bit since my last Friday Five blog post, but no worries I’ve got another fun one for you 😀
Today, I’m sharing my favorite things… Summer edition!
Oh yeah, each of our summers would not officially begin until we celebrate our wedding anniversary! This year we celebrated five married years on June 7th. Each year I love celebrating our anniversary, having a blast at our anniversary photo session with our dear friend Kate Spencer, and looking back on the last year together to kick off the summer.
Last year was the start of our garden adventure… And this year we went into the garden with a lot of lessons learned after last year’s experiences! We loved our garden dearly last year, so naturally, we doubled the size of our garden this year. Yep, we’re a little nutty! From tomatoes to zucchini to peppers to onions to melons to cucumbers to green beans and just about everything in between… We love our (not so little) garden! But what I don’t love about the garden? You guessed it – worms and pulling weeds. Ha!
If you know me (or you’ve had a summertime dinner at our house), you probably know that I’m a fan of mojitos! Big fan. On our honeymoon to Puerto Rico in 2014, we first discovered mojitos and fell in LOVE… Especially after the Bacardi factory tour! Over the past two summers, we’ve grown mint in our garden and it’s been amazing. Like the best mint ever though it usually grows slightly out of control. Whenever I drink a mojito it brings me back to our honeymoon and sipping on our favorite cocktail together…
Ummm, do I even need to explain myself here? You know this girl LOVES a good sunset. That dreamy warm light as the day ends… Heart eyes! And to top it off? Summer sunsets are my absolute favorite. Like gosh, I can’t get enough of sunsets like this!
It’s true, I love a good pool day in the summertime. Sunshine paired with not a thing to do but float in the pool and enjoy the day. I definitely need more days like this this summer!
There you have it! My favorite things of summer for this Friday Five. When my summertime is filled with celebrating our wedding anniversary, gardening, sipping on yummy mojitos, beautiful summer sunsets, and pool days with our favorite people, it’s my favorite kind of summer.
