1. Strawberry Cake
Loved finding this recipe on Lady Behind the Curtain. The cake was easy to make, moist and perfect for a summer BBQ. You can find the recipe here.
2. Wedding & Reception Album Complete
I finally finished our wedding and reception album just one month shy of our first anniversary. That's good, right?
I decided to design and make my own because wedding albums are beyond expensive and I wanted to be able to control which pictures went into the book and the quality of the paper. I also wanted to add special captions and little mementos under pictures that photographers just wouldn't know to add.
I ended up making two books: one that dealt with the wedding ceremony and the other with the reception. I used Blurb and highly recommend it. It was easy, the books were high quality, and the price wasn't too bad.
3. MWF Seeking BFF
I couldn't put this book down. It is about author and fellow blogger, Rachel Bertsche in her yearlong search for a best friend after moving to a new city. I could relate to every awkward girl-date that she went on, the girl crushes you get when you and someone just click and how hard it is to find girlfriends after you move to a new city. I think this is the best book I've read this summer and I highly recommend it to any girl in their 20s.
PS-You can find her blog here.
I can't believe it's only 2 more weeks until my summer vacation is over and work begins all over again. Really trying to utilize these last few days to organize and de-clutter. If anyone has any tips or hints, I'm all ears!
I've had a hard week. I'll talk more about it next week, but it's been one full of highs and lows and full of a lot of hard decisions. I came across this quote on Pinterest and it really helped me get things into perspective-that and an ice cream date with husband-but I decided to share it in case any of you are wrestling with difficult decisions this week and are searching for a little guidance. I hope this helps you change your thinking as it did mine.
