The Weekend Dish: 6/20/2015


Hello and happy weekend to you!

I feel like I blinked and this week disappeared! It went incredibly fast, although it’s been nice to slow down and enjoy some cozy early summer thunderstorms in the evening. One of my favorite things is hearing a pounding thunderstorm in the middle of the night… call me crazy, but I find it to be so peaceful and relaxing. Are you doing anything special to celebrate Father’s Day tomorrow? Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
