Happy Sunday, friends! The hot-sticky humidity of Missouri summers is in full swing where I live and I am soaking it up. I hope you are finding whatever little moments of joy and everyday magic you can right now—I’m making it a point to hunt for them everyday. Anyway, here are 10 things I’m loving lately.
Recently bought this vase and can’t wait to figure out how to arrange flowers in it. I (Emma) am not the best at flower arranging, so I think I’ll stick to a minimal look.
Even though it’s summer, I still love to bake and am excited to try something from this cookbook soon since I just got it in the mail recently.
I listened to episode 151 of the Rise podcast this past week and fell in love with Elizabeth Gilbert all over again. 🙂
If you saw my IGTV on Friday then you might already know that I’ve been shaking up lots of mocktails using these non-alcoholic spirits. And when I’m feeling like shaking up a “real” martini, I am currently loving this gin.
Anytime I go on a boat or go floating, I make “love dip,” which is simply cream cheese mixed with salsa (don’t knock it until you try it!). I also have a slightly more fancy version here in case anyone needs a river-appropriate dip recipe. 🙂
I really don’t need any more sandals but these seem essential, right?
Haven’t made homemade ice cream in a minute, this Oreo Red Velvet Ice Cream recipe sounds amazing!!!!!
Every Sunday, I fill out this journal. I’ve been doing this for a few months now and I love it. It helps me see not only what I need to be working on, but also what I’ve already accomplished. I often forget to take a minute and celebrate or just be proud when I finish goals—I’m always moving on to the next thing.
And last, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your emails and comments on last week’s podcast about how I finished the first draft of my novel. I really cannot tell you how much it meant to me! -Emma
