okay, gang, this week definitely got away from me. so i recycled a father’s day post from last year. hope you don’t mind! it’s actually fun to go back and look at older posts. the blog serves as a diary because i remember each and every photo shoot. sometimes, i cringe when i see old blog posts and the typical “what was i thinking!” springs to mind. but my mindset has always been one of trying something new on for size. if it doesn’t fit it’s not the end of the world. right?! life is too short to live with regrets. especially when it comes to fashion.
this is oscar on most afternoons, lazing on his bed. or he’s checking to see if any deer are lurking close to his yard.
this weekend is Father’s Day. can you believe we are halfway through the year?! all three kiddos will be in town to celebrate so a barbeque is on the menu. i love this time of year when the kitchen moves outside and so does our dining experience. the chicken is spatchcocked (a fancy name for splitting then flattening the bird) for a faster and easier grill time. it’s marinated in rosemary, olive oil, and lemon. it’s all yours, mr. style. i like my skin crispy, not charred…
mr. style has a sweet tooth so i whipped up a gluten-free Raspberry Chocolate Truffle. it’s a great way to incorporate fresh raspberries that are in abundance this time of year. this is a very easy recipe that takes about ten minutes to make.
this t-shirt dress is from Everlane purchased last year. it is one of my favorite summer dresses. ‘cuz this time of year there is nothing like a comfy dress. the good news is there are always new renditions of t-shirt dresses every year. here are a few that caught my eye.
the porch is evolving little by little. new chairs were added this year along with new cushions and pillows. the next step is to paint the inside white, including the floors. and remove the lattice from inside to outside.
all right gang cheers to friday! oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend! ollie too.
