Crisp Corn Salad with Basil


I adore a fresh ear of sweet corn when it's just picked and so very sweet. Nothing more is needed other than a dash of salt + pepper. There's still plenty of time to enjoy this light summer dish before summer has passed.

{Home-ology} Modern Vintage Home Tour

Back in July I joined in on a summer home blog tour. It was the push I needed to finally piece together a little album of our home. It was also great timing after a six month exterior renovation.

A Summer Sweets Party


At least five months out of the year, we pine for the warm summer days when bbq, boating, and gardening fill our weekends. But when we're in the height of summer, as we are right now, the heat tends to hold us hostage and we retreat indoors.

Summers are the time we should be enjoying our outdoor spaces the most. So as a way to work around the dog days, I utilize my outdoor spaces in the evenings when the setting sun sends a cool breeze. And a fun way to do take advantage of this time of day is with a summer sweets party.

Evenings are the perfect time to invite guests for a simple gathering where desserts and cocktails take center stage. This is how we recently did it:
