June Recap in Quick Bites

We’ve had the gloomiest start to the summer season, but just this weekend finally saw some sun. It’s incredible how a little sunshine lifts your mood. Sharing a few things that lifted my mood this month in hopes you’ll find something that also brings you joy.

I’ve gotten very into audio books via Audible. At this stage of life it’s been hard to find the time to read, but I’m getting through several books a month and a few podcasts by listening. My favorite has been to put on a book while cleaning. (For folding laundry, my reward is Bravo!)

If you have a chance give this podcast a listen. I’ve already shared with a few friends and my husband. It’s been so instrumental in helping to reframe thinking around work and friendship and truly everything else. It’s a quick and easy listen.

One of the best books I’ve listened to this year has to be the Next Year in Havana. It’s a captivating story that goes between a grandmother growing up right before the revolution in Cuba and present day Cuba as visited by her granddaughter.

I’ve started to exercise again this month, fairly consistently and stumbled across a great Amazon brand for workout clothes. If you’re in the market I recommend this top, leggings and shorts— I’ve been wearing a rotation of all three and they’re great. I’m in my lululemon mom era without the price tag.

I’ve made two great appetizers repeatedly over the last month. A flatbread with pitches, prosciutto and burrata  and antipasto skewers. See my Instagram story highlights for ingredients and instructions.

I still think a candle is one of the simplest and easiest gifts for someone— lately I’ve been opting for that instead of booze as a housewarming or hosting gift. Here are great recommendations.

If I was to get one thing from the Nordstrom sale, I would pick up a pair of faux leather leggings. They’re just such a great layering piece for fall.
