Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 71
Life has been crazy! We have had lots to do around the house before leaving, but finally, we are good to go and on our way to Los Angeles to visit family.
Our first stop is in SLO to see our son’s college graduation, and then we are on the road again. Road Trips are some of the best when traveling to visit loved ones.
This vacation is our first time reuniting since the pandemic so it will be extra special.
What are your summer trips? I always love hearing about your travels.
Before hitting the road, I took the time to write this blog post about backyard inspiration ideas. These designs and decorations have helped me create the space I love most, the backyard.
Check out these great ideas to start styling your own space!
Personal Note from Janine
Our family eats most of our meals outdoors during the summer months on our patio. And this table I decorated for a French six-course dinner that my son wanted to create.
Each family member was assigned a course, and we had hors d’oeuvre, soup, appetizer, salad, main course, and dessert.
I plan to host another big dinner for the family since my son is off to his first job in Seattle, Washington. We need a nice send-off and a fun family event.
I will share our dinner over here on the blog this summer.
Make memories and enjoy your backyard this summer!

This Week’s Tip – Cutting Roses
Get Roses All Summer With This Tip!
You’ll love this tip if you have roses and want blossoms throughout the summer!
When your blossoms are all done, make sure to trim the rose off the branch. Look below the rose at the leaves branching out, and when you see a stem with five leaves (two on each side and one on the top), you’ll want to trim right above this branch. But you don’t want to cut just anywhere on the stem.
Trimming the rose bush at this spot will encourage another rose to sprout above the five leaves. It is all about pruning and staying on top of the blossoms to get more roses to bloom!

Off to relax and spend time with family! Have a great weekend!
