It’s the first weekend of the summer season! I hope you are enjoying yours so far! My Mitten Moments is full of good summer shares this week.

But first…

When was the last time you had a garage sale? It’s been about 11 years for me. I participated in my son’s subdivision garage sale this weekend. It’s a great excuse to unload some of my stuff and get some snuggles from my beautiful grandgirls!

Honestly, I went for the snuggles!

I’m very excited to report that my flowers are doing great so far this season. My friend Jennifer from Cottage on Bunker Hill sent me a variety of seeds and some of those are also starting to come up. It was so windy the day I planted them and I’m convinced they aren’t all in a nice even row.

Time will tell!

  1. Kim you are a busy lady! Wish I was closer to be in your book club. And I am jealous Jen sent you Zinnias…I better be nicer to her so she will send me some next year. Ha! And as always thank you for sharing my posts. You are so sweet. Thankful for you and hope you have a great week ahead!

  2. When I first read the post I thought you said you had 17 weddings, not that 7 isn’t a lot. You look beautiful in this dress!
    Molly is AMAZING! I am so excited she started a blog!
    Love all of the links.
    Good luck with your zinnias, I planted them for the first time this year and it is a battle to keep the deer from earring them.
    Have a great week.

  3. Kim, I just love that pink dress. You look stunning! We have three weddings coming up between August and October. I just love weddings.

    Thank you for sharing my star pillow. xoxo

  4. Beautiful flowers! My garden is sparse this year, life gets in the way sometimes. So I’m enjoying friends, and public gardens this year! My wildlife liked to eat my zinnias also, maybe they were too pretty. Had at least 4 varieties, looked like a bouquet. Excited and nervous about the wedding and remembering everything. Had a dream I forgot my dress. It is hanging by the back door…
