Last weekend was filled with all sorts of fun photoshoots including two that I shared on the blog this week. I’m always happily surprised when brands that I love working with blogs with smaller followings. It’s not something I’ve run across often as I continue to build an audience here on the blog and on social media. I hope that I will be able to continue to share about both brands that I’m well acquainted with and ones that are new to me in the coming years, and I’m very grateful for each and every one of you who follow along here.
As far as this weekend, we’re keeping it closer to home since my sister and niece will be in town for a few hours in the afternoon and we’ll keep them company. I’ve already been thinking up another possible drink (just have to settle on a fruit). The Pear Spritzer I shared about on my Instagram reel last weekend will be coming to the blog next week and I’m also thinking up some sort of sandwich with some interesting flavor profiles (perhaps it will include one of the sheep cheese that I’ve tried out recently.)
I’m also hoping to relax and watch a few of the movies on my Netflix list including Gunpowder Milkshake and The Last Letter From Your Lover and possibility get some reading done for an upcoming Instagram live that Katherine of @rue.daphine.paris will be doing with author Amy Thomas in August.
