Good first weekend in June morning all! Memorial Day heralds the beginning of summer to many – and before we know it – the Fourth of July will be here! There are so many things we celebrate about summer. This is the time we plan and take vacations. This is the time when things bloom and grown in our garden. And this is the time we spend together to celebrate family. Do you love cookouts and picnics? Do you love making homemade ice cream…I love these things! I love whatever brings us together. And when it comes to it…I love blogging because in so many ways it also brings us together to share and to learn!
Here’s one of the things I did this past week – If you give it a try I know you’ll love it!
I love French baguettes! I dream of some day going to France to visit where this authentic bread was invented and created…but until then, I learned how to make my own…as close as possible. AND I learned how to make my own butter – easy and quick. My goodness is this good!
A while back I had the awesome privilege to review and to interview the writer/director of the movie, This Beautiful Fantastic. It is one of those movies that will be my all time favorite! I actually think about this lovely movie when I’m in the garden…
Pride and Prejudice – Dearest and I love this movie so much, I have placed one of the quotes on our bedroom wall, ‘I never wish to be parted from from this day on…’
For Mother’s Day, Dearest gave me Peter Rabbit…I am a great fan of Beatrix Potter…and well, I smiled the whole time. I kinda loved it!
Also, Dearest purchased The Greatest Showman…this is a musical, we LOVE musicals…and well it is an amazing movie! I love movies that the whole family can see!
There are others I haven’t seen, yet, but want to…I don’t know what the summer movie line up will be, I hope there are more great movies like these! What movie have you seen that you like?
