Happy August, friends!

What a whirlwind of a year this has turned out to be sheesh! This time last year, we were getting ready to leave for vacation at the beach and get the boys ready to start preschool. No vacation for us this year and no idea what the school year will hold. BUT! We’re still trying to make the most of each day and we can all still bake and cook delicious things, right?!

What’s your favorite thing that you’ve made since the world turned upside down?
