IT’S SUMMERTIME! with it has come blue skies, fluffy white clouds + heat. all have been welcomed with open arms after a very dreary, rainy spring. we’ve been spending as much time outdoors as possible. from grilling + bonfires, to many long walks.

speaking of walks, it took me a few tries to get comfortable going for solo walks with a newborn + dog. our first go-round, I left the house in flip flops (after struggling entirely too long to get everyone else ready, I spared no time or effort to put on shoes that required tying). halfway through our walk, the baby began to scream + one of my flip flops broke. almost simultaneously. so, I tossed my broken shoe into the bottom of the stroller and walked the rest of the way home with one shoe on. I prayed I wouldn’t see a single soul the rest of our walk. I’ve since perfected “the walk,” which includes bringing a lot of bribery treats for the dog + always leaving time to put on tennis shoes.

what pairs better with your favorite summertime activities than a refreshing cocktail? (maybe not so much on the long walks. for that, I recommend water).
