Best & Brightest | 04

This week began by finding a sunflower bouquet for $3.99 at Sprouts, and it’s finishing with a family trip to the lake, so yes: Happy summer indeed.

The first week of June also marks Week 1 in many camps around the country, so I was especially missing my favorite place and praying for all my Pine Cove people! #bestjobever20140606-092449-33889174.jpg

Here are some of my favorite stories from around the web this week:

  1. LOVED ALL OF THESE!!! I printed out the camper letter to read to my kids this afternoon as a Monday pick me up!

    And those chairs, so CUTE! Come to Tyler in August and you, Elizabeth and I can make them together!

    • haha thanks Mel! I was hoping you’d see that camp letter… and oh goodness guard a heart! I’d love to “help” you & elle tackle that project! I’d be a really great cheerleader. Might even make you cookies. Sounds perfect!
