Bake a new dessert, decorate with a new piece of decor or create a new summer drink. The possibilities are endless.

Personal Note from Janine
This week I shared a delicious fruit tart recipe on the blog. It’s the perfect dessert for summer with an abundance of fruit. The top of this tart is layered with a bounty of fresh berries. And speaking of fruit, I need to make my weekly trips to the peach farm near our home.
Last summer my daughter and I were obsessed with picking scrumptious tree-ripened peaches out on the farm. There is nothing quite as yummy as a juicy peach picked right off the tree. All summer, I slice them up and served them with some plain greek yogurt for breakfast.
But, this year, I hope to make the fruit tart with some sliced peaches that I pick this summer.
If you have a farm near you, adventure out and buy some fresh produce. I’m sure you’ll notice the difference in the quality of the fruit.
And oh yeah, Happy Summer to you and your family!

Latest Obsession – Cute Clothes!
I stumbled on this brand of women’s clothes the other day and I love these blouses. I like how each piece is classic with a little unique flair that sets them apart.
Whenever I have a free moment, I’m perusing their clothing. I even signed up for the 10% discount. The prices are a bit expensive, but usually only have a few fancy pieces in a wardrobe for special occasions. I’m not a fashionista but I do love classic clothing that will last a while.
