THE BEST OF SUMMER + A LITTLE BREAK...


Hello!! I hope you had a great Labor Day. If I wasn't working or running errands, I was being the absolute most laziest person I could be. I can't tell you how wonderful that felt! I took naps, watched marathons of The Cosby Show and Roseanne, started this book (SO GOOD!), hit up some sales (this was my favorite purchase) and had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season.  I also spent some time reminiscing about summer, looking through old posts and thinking about how time flies when you are having fun. I didn't take any extravagant trips to Europe or anything like that this summer, but I experienced so many wonderful small moments this summer that were incredibly fun. Many of those moments were firsts, like...

My first trip to Atlantic Beach. It was on that beach and in this beautiful cottage that I had the MOST relaxing time. I'm about 200% sure I'll be going back...


My first trip to Scotts Antique Market with these fabulous ladies... I met tall of them through blogging and I swear they are some of the loveliest women I've ever met. They are why I love blogging...

My first trip to my neighborhood Farmers Market. I went just about every weekend after that with my camera in tow and always came home with a bag full of fresh vegetables and more knowledge of photography...

The first party I've ever hosted at my house - a baby sprinkle for a friend. The punch was a big hit. Thanks to you, it has also been a big hit on Pinterest. Ya'll are awesome...

And doing my first DIY... It was a small one, but you have to start somewhere right?? :)

I also fell in love with caramel for the first time when I made these salted caramel brownies. Ina Garten deserves a food Oscar for these - if there were such a thing...

Other than experiencing a lot of firsts this summer, I also made some small changes around my house... 

And made this watermelon salad 5 or so times...

And this shrimp pasta - well I'm too embarrassed to say how many times I made it. It's just too easy to make and tastes amazing...

Such a great summer and so fun to pause and take a look back on the things I've done and learned! But fall is coming up and it's my favorite season - ever. I've only mentioned that here a few 100 times, so you know it's true. :) I'm actually going to spend the rest of this week finding inspiration for upcoming blog posts for fall, working to meet an upcoming deadline at work and getting some additional rest. So I'll leave you with this and will see you here next week. In the meantime, you can find me on Instagram! Thank you for following along on my little summer journey and making it twice as special. Have a great week!

  5. Hi Tiffany,
    Just thinking about you and hope all is well...sounds like you're happy with your routine and finding joy.
    I have some shrimp in my frig, fresh caught and I'm oven drying, fresh picked tomoatoes, from the Garden Project Organic Garden in which I participate. I'm thinking I'll pull together some pasta with the shrimp, tomatoes, fresh basil from my garden and maybe some zucchini maybe some toasted walnuts. You know how that works? he he Thanks for the inspiration and conversation. Take care

  6. I just want to thank you for this brownie recipe. I made them last weekend for a girls sleepover, had some leftover for my husband and he has been eating them ALL week and declared them the best brownies EVER. I have literally heard it every single day! I am not really a chocolate person but he absolutley loves chocolate so these will definitely be in heavy rotation. Thanks again
