Flashback on our 4th of July weekend


I am back to blogging! This was an unintentional break  – however absolutely necessary. I kind of got into a rut and didn’t at all feel like posting anymore. I have given the future of this blog some thought and will change around a couple of things gradually. I will share soon.

Mike and I had the most amazing, simple and relaxing 4th of July weekend! Our friends Tara and Joe asked us if we felt like coming along with them to her parents in Owensboro to relax and enjoy some time together. It was the most fun, easy going week-end filled with relaxation, 4th of July fun, BBQ’s and friendship. Thanks guys for being such loving friends, and thanks to Tara’s parents for being the most amazing hosts! You made us feel like home!

We enjoyed learning how to play corn hole (throwing small bags filled with corn onto a slanted plank with a hole – trying to get the bag in the hole), swam – a lot – grilled, ate, blew up some fireworks, sat around the fire pit at night. We also walked around Owensborrow and discovered the most quaint From-Farm-to-Table Shop called Nona’s for a delicious smoothie and a pit stop at Reid’s fruit orchard for apple slushies and fresh corn o our way home. How spoiled can you be!?


Thanks guys for showing us another piece of Kentucky goodness!

I must say…July – as a whole – has started off pretty amazing and I still have tones to share from June as well – so more to come very soon!

How has YOUR summer been so far!?

Happy Monday loved-ones and don’t forget:  Life is a journey!
