Friday Favourites and life lately!!

Oh boy, has it been a while since I've posted any sort of life lately.... here's some stuff that has been bringing a smiles to our lives.

My garden has been happy with all of this sunshine!! I've been able to pick chard, kale, 1 pepper, yellow beans, strawberries and all the herbs since we started.


Happy 6th Birthday to my sweet nephew!!!

Canada Day was a little more low key with just our little family...

Red and white breakfast-- french toast awesomeness!

Gosh, this girl is growing daily!!

Burgers, s'mores, a campfire and some neighbourhood fireworks made for a great day!!

We have been using in season strawberries for many different things.

A strawberry rhubarb crisp-- I always cut the sugar and it's always too sour for me ;-s

Strawberry, mint gin smashes

We took out the hot tub that never works ever since we bought the house--- now there's a big gaping hole in our back yard!!

I made the trek out to get a patio set the other day. I'm so excited for 2-4 weeks from now!

Nothing says summer than bare feet, a popsicle and hop scotch.. We were trying to take a peek at potential new neighbours so we've been using our front yard often these days... our very favourite neighbours decided to downsize and sell. When older people come, we do some gardening in front; when people with kids come, we sent the kids out to play; when a couple comes, we sit and have a glass of wine in our bistro set out front.... we're staging as well!! I think we are part of the reason she got significantly over asking--- well that and Covid!

We have had a couple friends over with their kids for dinner..

These kiddos and their midnight swims...

A 'did' my hair recently... she's been known to put lotion on hair to make it smooth. I kid you not!

We've bought boxes from a local farm for the last couple months and let's just say, it brings us so much joy. The quality of the produce is exquisite.

Cheers to another (low-key) weekend, friends!!! They are fast becoming my favourite kind....

Linking up with Andrea. 


  1. I love that you were "staging" the neighbourhood too, hilarious. We've had a few houses sell on our house this month, with one more to go. I'm sad to say good bye but looking forward to meeting new people.

  2. I hope your new neighbors will be great!

  3. Nothing better than a night swim, and that french toast looks delish <3

  4. Loving your garden and in season strawberries are amazing! That is so funny that you were staging for your potential new neighbors. Have a great weekend!

  5. Those strawberry gin drinks look so good! I really need to try more gin drinks and that would be a great one to try!

  6. What a delicious looking bounty from the garden! Sounds like you've been having a fun and easy summer.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
