Summer is officially here! For many that means vacations, beach time and plenty of outdoor gatherings from BBQs to picnics to simply enjoying a family meal on your deck or patio. And I love all of the summer festivities. Okay, maybe not so much if it is sweltering hot, but I will always — always — love the food. To help you look like a foodie rockstar, I compiled a few of my favorite summer recipes from my sister blog, Eat Laugh Purr.
June has been a bit of rough month news-wise. From Brock Turner to Orlando to Donald Trump to Brexit, there seems to be no shortage of bad news or signs of a pending apocalypse. It’s enough to turn anyone’s smile upside down. I’ve spent a lot of time surfing the various news site to stay abreast of the latest happenings, which may have been a mistake. Not that I want to be uninformed, but sometimes you have to turn off the news and take a break.
