My youngest. What to do with another birthday… sigh. Time seems to tick on quicker than I would like. How in the world— and I mean this— is my youngest entering her teenage years? I still feel like she is small enough to ride this little plastic Barbie horse across our woods floors in her footie jammies. Okay, who are we kidding. She wasn’t even small enough to do it then (sorry plastic barbie horse).
Does anyone out there love back to school shopping more than me?!? Anyone?!! Um. Yeah I don’t. It’s not even the middle of July and yet I find myself and my cart in that infamous aisle, the ceiling and walls plastered with reminders that the summer season is coming to a close. I don’t care how early you start how many kids you have, how old they are, or even how nice or well mannered they are-it is never that fun. Ever. School lists. Dress codes. Kleenex tissue.
Hello, and happy Saturday! There is a major holiday around the corner and, as I promised, it is time I shared some of my favorite holiday traditions. I LOVE tradition. From food, to decorating I am a fan and try very hard to make lasting and loving traditions for my family. (Because honestly I expect the favor back when I am too old and too tired haha!)
Despite all the rain, (which I don’t mind for my gardens sake!) summer has already started in the Dreessen home. Kids are out of school and I have finally decided to take some time off from my cooking classes to create some memories in the kitchen with my own family. What will my summer look like? Oh, trust me, you will see...
