Each Sunday, find my favourite links, my workouts, the playlists I listened to, what recipes I made and more from the past week!
To say this week was hard would be a considerable understatement. My gramma, at 96, passed away last Wednesday and my world is shattered. To know me is to know her and how much she meant me. She leaves not only a huge gaping hole in my heart but my entire family’s. So I’m sure you will appreciate and understand that this week’s post will be short and sweet.
I will say, though, there were a few bright spots in these past few days – it was finally warm enough to put laundry on the line outside (something I live for in the summer time – does that make a me a good housewife? 😉 ), Penny got to help Pops (my step-dad) paint the new chicken area in the barn, which was the cutest thing (just picture a 3 year in shorts, a t-shirt and pink rubber boots covered in white paint and you’ll get the gist of how it ended), and I stress-baked the best apple cake ever.

ONE YEAR AGO…
I posted this Mother’s Day Gift Guide! While I didn’t quite get around to doing one this year, all the items on this list are amazing gifts and everything, except for one item (the pink “Mama” sweatshirt) is available to purchase still!
Here’s to another week of quarantine!
And did you notice that Cinco de Mayo is *actually* on Taco Tuesday this year? We like the good ol’fashioned tacos from a box but I recently tried a Nude Beverage Lime Tequila Soda and it was like I was back in Cabo having the most perfect unsweetened margarita by the pool so that will definitely be my drink of choice for our taco dinner!
I also just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their sweet messages and loving thoughts sent to me and my family during this time. We appreciate every word and every single one of you!
