Friday Faves – foodiecrush

Whats up buddies! And Joyful Summer season Fridays!

It’s one of many final heat evenings of June earlier than we warmth up in July and I’m sitting on my deck penning this week’s checklist of Friday Faves.

Because the solar begins to set, I can hear the chirping of the birds courting each other because the neighbor’s garden mower hums alongside a number of homes beneath. However what’s even louder in my ears is the tinkling sound of dialog, and laughter, and fellowship, drifting from the again deck of our neighbor’s house. Their festivity on this summer season night time has me chagrined and jealous and wishing I used to be them.

I don’t envy their house. I don’t envy the meals I can odor cooking on their grill—though it does odor scrumptious (however inferior to ours above.) 🙂

What I do envy is the relaxed, completely satisfied occasions they’re clearly sharing with each other, and the reminiscences they’re making with out even making an attempt.

That’s why my objective for the month of July is to dedicate extra time to fostering my relationships with buddies, household, and positively with myself.

As Alexa and I proceed to craft subsequent yr’s publication of the Nourished Planner, I’m always reminded I NEED to take time away from the dominance work is in my life and take time away from the distractions of social media which are each enjoyable to immerse myself in however means too absorbing on the identical time. Which is fairly ironic as a result of one in all my different targets for this month is to get extra private on social media, and never solely share extra of “me” on my public FoodieCrush profiles, but in addition extra of “me” on my private Fb web page which is way too uncared for as a result of sharing I’m compelled to do on my enterprise accounts.

July is about to turn out to be my time to be extra me.

What about you? What are you specializing in this July?

I really like that I did this put up final yr. It’s a reminder of what I do know I need to be doing, as a substitute of what I feel I ought to be doing.

Consistent with that put up, listed here are 10 issues I’ve on my bucket checklist for this coming July:

  2. Clear out my downstairs meals storage space (it’s extra of a chore, however if you happen to noticed it proper now it could be in your checklist too!)
  3. Resurrect no less than one reunion of our weekly buddies night time of sips and this card recreation (20 years wait has been waaaayyyy too lengthy!)
  4. Film night time within the entrance yard — this moveable film display screen is fairly cool, or I perhaps I may DIY one like this as a substitute (it’s not like this home with a painter husband doesn’t have sufficient 5-gallon paint buckets hanging round!)
  5. Prepare dinner from one in all my favourite cookbooks only for enjoyable no less than as soon as per week
  6. Bake a loaf of selfmade bread (I’ll have to do this one!)
