Taste of Summer

My lettuce isn't quite mature yet, but I harvested enough of the tasty stuff to add to some crispy ice berg to make a very yummy salad.

I also made some blackberry iced tea with mint leaves. I planted a teeny tiny mint plant four years ago and now it is nicely established.

On a side note, I am pretty impressed with the camera on my new phone. You can see the condensation on the glass!

Can anyone say ready for summer? I love getting to use my fresh produce! I need to take another picture of my potatoes... they are foot tall already. I'm ok with this early warmth... I just hope the weather is nice in October.

I thought this little article was interesting since I have been collecting mason jars for the wedding.

Randomness from my phone : something for Emily to read tomorrow

 My only dedicated reader, eh um... Miss Emmy in the Making has been complaining about my lack of blog posts... well I have some very valid reasons why I haven't been crafting or taking pictures of my crafts... You see, this little booger named Huck has been taking up so much of my free time!
 Oh and his mom too. She has been taking up a lot of time! How about this has been the best maternity leave ever???

 Lots of chilllaxing is important. And smores consumption... you can't miss that.
 I have made a few wedding crafts... I need to get some better pictures of them. This picture frames are going to hold some of our engagement pics so I will re post them once those are in. They were super cheap on clearance at Target or some such and I just spiffed them up a bit with mod podge and paint.
I'm trying really hard to make multi purpose wedding crafts so I don't end up with a ton of crap to get rid of when its all over. I LOVED this little prop we used in our pics... Hopefully the letters didn't glare for Anna like they did for me.

Well Emily, none of this was new to you but I hope you liked the pictures. I have so loved our extra time together!!!!
