A little of our lately...

Hello friends! How is your early summer shaping up?  I'm ready to hit some strawberry fields, wander the farmer's markets, break out this Paletas book, and indulge in some trashy beach reads...but first we need to discuss this Sangria that I made on Monday...white wine, St Germain, and fresh fruit...done & done...this summer's cocktail all sussed out...

random goodness...this season's saltwaters, the sweetest bear ever by the amazing Jennifer Murphy (also 1/2 of Dull Diamond), and my new Clare Vivier go to in a ridiculously yum melon...

and the best rainy day baking project - this granola...seriously THE BEST...I subbed in pine nuts for pecans and added chocolate...amazing...
Okay...I'm off...hoping to finally tackle my mess of a garden or I may just pour a glass of aforementioned beverage and take it easy...yay for summer!
xoxo, M


  1. Aww Lou looks like such a big girl! What a cutie!

  2. We are totally on the same wavelength, I made paletas for a Memorial Day party that were a big hit! I made up my own recipes after gathering inspiration online, hoping to post them next week! So easy and delicious, plan on making them all summer. ;) And aren't matching Saltwaters the best?! I've got red and Charley has navy, but he loves when we wear them together.

    Looks like you are enjoying your summer!


    PS- I am obsessed with that new Clare Vivier in melon! Will it fit diapers and some wipes? Might have to make room in my closet for one...

  3. Love Clare Vivier...dreaming of my first bag. Have been meaning to make granola and homemade sangria is the bomb. Love the post.

  4. I've been obsessed with making my own granola lately too:

    And it becomes so easy to just whip up a batch, I'm so glad I discovered it!

  5. making that granola and sangria this weekend..... yum!!!!!!!! thank you :)

  6. making granola ist just so therapeutic!

    trying the sangria, for sure!


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
