Y’all, I’m not gonna lie: August was a rough month. But rough months happen, and I am so glad the month is almost over. I’m in need of a fresh start, and fortunately I’m getting it in the form of moving to a new apartment next week! But in light of trying to find positives even among the most challenging times, for this edition of my Friday Five, I’m sharing five things I’ve learned this month and how I’m going to move forward like a champ.
So, remember last week when I said I was going to share peach recipes all week in honor of National Peach Month? Well, then life happened, and I only shared one on the blog (peach iced tea), and one for a peach whiskey smash on my Instagram. Sorry, y’all. But I’m making it up to y’all today with a new peachy recipe: peach pound cake!
Did y’all know that August is National Peach Month? Best month ever! This time of year, nothing beats farm-fresh peaches. I stock up at the farmer’s market every weekend. So this week, I’m sharing some of my favorite peachy recipes, on here and over on Instagram. I’m starting with something everyone loves sipping on: peach iced tea!
I’m back with another fun, easy cocktail recipe! A few weeks ago I shared recipes for some summer fruit whiskey smash drinks, which were delicious. But the cocktail creations don’t stop there. This time, I experimented with vodka—which I usually don’t go for—and a ginger liqueur called Big O. It’s in the same portfolio as the JW Kelly & Co. bourbon I used before, so I knew I would like it.
Life can get pretty stressful at times, especially when you stay as busy as I do. My mile-long to-do list often looks pretty overwhelming. Even if you don’t actively feel stressed, it’s important to practice self care and stress management, so you can avoid a mega-stress moment and keep anxiety to a minimum.
