My summer break has officially begun! Yes! I couldn't be more thrilled and ready for a little bit of a breather. Here's to lazy mornings with coffee and a good book, afternoons by the pool, and plenty of nights filled with good friends and food. Summer, I'm ready for ya!

I hope that y'all have a great weekend! Here are some links to kick it off...

Cheers to summer!

Who wants a friendship bracelet?

I'm determined to have at least mild gardening success this summer.

Such a cute summer skirt!

This stamped scarf seems doable.

Elements of a good porch. (I'm sitting on ours right now!)

10 great summer salads.

I love everything about this room!

A perfect go-to summer dress.

The cutest burger buns of your life.

Miles would be so happy if I made these for dinner.

The summer issue of Chickpea is out! I love this publication.

We're headed to Vancouver and Seattle next month! Would love to hear from y'all - where we should eat, what we should do, etc.

Plus, some recipes I can't wait to try:

  1. I spent all last summer in Seattle while interning for Seattle Times! It's an AWESOME city!

    My must-dos for you:
    -Pike Place Market
    -Gelatiamo (get the chocolate hazelnut gelato, out of this world good)
    -Go to Spuds for fish n chips
    -Go to The Matador for really dope Mexican food in West Seattle (VERY pretty there and it's across the bridge from downtown Seattle); also go to Memo's and get their carne asada fries (delicious)!
    -I had a really great sandwich from Delicatus so go there
    -I never got around to going but you have to try the Dahlia Bakery for me (check out their cookbook in a bookstore, everything is so pretty!)

    If all else fails look at my Foursquare list too: : )

    1. Marissa, thank you SO much for all of these recommendations! I've got them all added to our list for the trip - you're awesome!!!

    2. You're so welcome Marie! Have a lovely time! :)

  2. SO fun that you're going to Seattle - it's on my bucket list for sure. You HAVE to go to Delancey & pick up some Marge Granola for me so that I can live vicariously through you. Also...YES to that blood orange marg and to those friendship bracelets.
    p.s. Thanks for the link love! Have a great weekend!

    1. Delancey is #1 on our list! Thanks love! Hope you had a great weekend!

    Those salads look incredible!

    1. Me too! I think I drove my 5th grade teacher crazy with making them during class :)

  6. Okay that flamingo skirt is THE CUTEST. If only it doesn't cost ALL THE MONEY. Also I need that mac and cheese. Like whoa.

    Go to any Tom Douglas restaurant in Seattle! He's the best.

    1. Thanks for the rec, love! And that skirt - I KNOW. WHY?!

  7. Enjoy the start of your summer break! June is hurtling by as we get ready for our break at the end of the month. Hope you have lots of lazy afternoons eating one of those salads on your porch. And be sure to get some of Fran's chocolates in Seattle...I have not been but I want to go badly!
