As much as I love to travel, since I became a mom I’ve become much more of a homebody… and nothing feels better than coming home from a trip and having the weekend stretching ahead of me. Yesterday was all about unpacking and getting caught up on housework and emails from while I was away; so today is devoted to having some fun, hanging out with the fam and recharging before the workweek. On the agenda: a long walk around the lake, picking up a new meyer lemon tree at the plant nursery (ours bit the dust in the last frost of winter), making some of these homemade popsicles to eat while we jump in the pool, and throwing steaks on the grill for dinner tonight — my Sunday night fave! Hope you’re all having a lovely summer weekend, and keep reading for my favorite links from the past week!
