Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Fun party game, Twister on the lawn anyone?!

Try this refreshing Basil Lemonade!

The last long weekend of the summer is here.  I hope you have fun plans, maybe you are planning a backyard bash, heading to the beach, or enjoying a relaxing alfresco dining night with loved ones.  I hope to do all of the above :)  While I'm going to miss the warm weather and long sunny days, I'm so excited to welcome fall and all it has to offer!  My fall favorites are always the cozy sweaters, warm soups, and especially the beautiful changing landscape!  Are you happy or feeling a little sad that summer has come to an end? 

Wishing you all a great long weekend!!

DIY Inspiration ~

  Painted Furniture.....I love these bold color options!-

  I've had an old buffet in my garage begging me to paint it all summer, however my sunny days off have lead me to the pool instead.  With the cooler weather around the corner I'm planning on a weekend painting project to finally get it done, now what color to go with?  I'm leaning toward a deep peacock color with gold hardware.  What are your favorite color options to make a statement and add that pop of color?

Loved her interview with anther great blog, Style Me Pretty  , the words she lives by....."Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Do not judge so you will not be judged. Radiate and give love and love comes back to you."  We should all believe this to be true!

Design Cold Feet?

Do you ever want to do something bold with your decor but are scared to commit?  Me too!  That accent wall has been on my "to do list" for way too long!  I found a great solution, walls by Mur removable wall patters!

Just choose your pattern and color, it's that easy, and when you grow tired of it, simply remove!  Bonus it's a US made product-Love!

 Sorry I was MIA a few days,  I wanted to pop in and say Hi!  
& share a few of my summer highlights...

The Beautiful Boston summer night Skyline

I recently went to an outdoor concert and was in awe of the amazing sky!
 I love visiting with my family on my Meme's beautiful farm,
 it's instant comfort for me and one of my summer favs!

 Spending time with my favorite peeps, my sweet nephew and niece,
  who are so much fun to hang out with!  They always make my day!

I hope your weekend was a good one!  I don't know about you but this summer is flying by, enjoy what's left!

~ Vegging Out ~

 My sweet neighbor stopped by the other day to bring me tomatoes from his garden, it made my day!  My little garden is hurting this year, I have a tiny cucumber and a small green tomato that I hope make it! (I think I have uninvited critters)  The above cucumbers are from my Meme's garden and the rest is from a local vegetable stand, all this healthy goodness has me craving and excited to try new veggie recipes....
