September is another month that I’m glad is (almost) over. Not that there was anything bad about it; September is just a weird transition month. It’s kinda sorta still summer but also kinda sorta fall. And of course, in Tennessee, it’s still in the mid-to-upper 80s and it probably won’t feel like fall until Halloween or after. I just want to wear my leggings and blanket scarves—is that too much to ask? Do I say this every year? Probably.
Confession: I wasn’t big on podcasts until I started my own. Or, at least until I started thinking about starting my own. I never disliked them, but I guess I just hadn’t found any that “grabbed” me. But once I started listening to a few—and was a guest on a friend’s show a time or two—the bug bit hard. Now my podcast collection grows by at least one new show a week.
I’m back, y’all! Last week was moving week and I’m now (mostly) settled in my new apartment. More on that in another post. How did I celebrate moving to a new apartment? With a new cocktail, of course! Meet The Last Taste of Summer cocktail: a fruity rum libation that’s perfect for the last days of my favorite season.
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!
