Happy Friday everyone; it truly has been a great week. This Friday five series will highlight the most important or inspirational elements from my life for the week. I believe in making the most of every day and I want to share with you the joy from my life in the form of fun and exciting news or just simply things that inspire me. Enjoy!
1. FAMILY FUN
To start I wrapped up my week long stay-cation last weekend. It was the best having my sisters in town from around the country. We had a blast BBQing, bonfiring, chatting, swimming and generally just catching up. It had been two years since all of us were together; hopefully we don't have to wait so long next time!
2. CELEBRATING NICHOLAS' 7TH BIRTHDAY
Did you catch Nicholas' 7th Birthday party? We had a lot of fun celebrating his birthday early on Wednesday and then a small family celebration on his real birthday on July 8th. We are so proud of the young man he has become. Still in shock that I have a seven year old, where did the time go?
3. LAVENDAR ICE CREAM
The cutest ice cream shop opened up near our house "Freeland Freeze." It is an adorable little shop adorned with shiplap and a pretty pink door (and the best ice cream too). I tried a split scoop of Lavender Ice Cream with Sugar Cookie. Yum!
4. EXTERIOR PAINT
You read that right; we started to paint the house exterior! What do you think of the color?
5. MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH HYDRANGEA
Do you notice every where you look hydrangea in bloom? I love that they are so common and bring beauty to everyone's yard including my own. I plan on planting another 3 - 4 hydrangea on the property when they go on sale this month.
What fun and exciting things happened in your life this week? Have a safe and fun weekend ahead!
