Our patio that we made over for One Room Challenge last year is still such an awesome space. We literally use it every day in the spring, summer, and fall. Here’s the thing though: our tiny bungalow is on a corner and one of the streets is a main thoroughfare. Because of this, we get a lottt of street noise. We added a fountain to help drown it out, but lately I’ve been thinking of adding something else: a set of modern wind chimes! As usual, I did my deep dive online and found tons of great sources that I wanted to share with you in case you’re on the search, too.

Spring is in full swing and we are officially in countdown to Summer mode… or at least I am! One of the best treats of this in-between season are ripe and juicy strawberries. If you know me, you know I’m very passionate about in-season strawberries. Those sad, greenhouse-grown ones that are usually enormous, yet have no flavor just can’t hold a candle to their in-season counterparts. I’m talking the little deep-red ones that almost look jewel-like. They have a sweet, intoxicating fragrance that is as sweet as candy before you even taste one. I’m taking full advantage of these delicious little morsels and making this incredibly easy strawberry almond overnight french toast recipe — it’s perfect for brunch this weekend!Continue reading “Easy Strawberry Almond Overnight French Toast Recipe”
