Good morning! It’s going to be a red, white and blue kind of weekend. Before you head out come on over to my house and check out all the good Mitten Moments I had this week!
I was a fun week! My friend Ben from Benjaman James Photography came over and took some new photos for my blog. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to share them all with you. If you are local and need a photographer look him up!
Here’s a sneak peak…
“For you have been called to live in freedom. Use your freedom to serve one another in love.” – Galatians 5:13
I know I have already shared 7 Ways To Host A Book Club, but it has been so fun preparing for it. I’m happy to report that my first book club hosting was a success. I bought this amazing charcuterie board and it worked like a charm! Not too big, not too small.
Oh, and if you are wondering…
The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave will be this month’s book. I’ll keep you posted!
Have you seen Yellowstone on Paramount Network? If not, you can catch-up this weekend. They are playing all seasons back-to-back.
A little warning, it has some intense language but other than that I really like it.

This Week On The Blog
A few weeks ago, I shared How To Create An Easy Patriotic Tablescape. When I put that together I also put together a fun centerpiece with real flowers! It’s a perfect project for this holiday weekend and the best part…? You can use it outside on your porch or patio when your finished.
Just a little secret…it’s no cost to you, but it really helps my blog out when you pin my photos. If you get the chance I sure would appreciate it!
A Few Favorite Mitten Moments
I love hydrangeas! Especially the blue and pink ones.
How do they magically change colors? I’m no expert, but can tell you I think it’s the best!
This week, my good friend and blogging mentor, KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms shared How To Decorate With Hydrangeas. She gives us all the tips on decorating with hydrangeas through the seasons. You won’t want to miss this one!
Do you love pizza? How about a yummy fruit pizza that’s also healthy?
You can’t see me but I am totally raising my hand!
My friends, AnneMarie and Anne from Simply 2 Moms, shared a Simply Delicious Individual Keto Fruit Pizza with Mixed Berries. This is the perfect summer dessert and would be so festive for the 4th of July weekend!
If you don’t know my friends, make sure you check them out!
My last favorite share of the week comes from my blogging friend, Stacy at Bricks ‘n Blooms. Have you seen her new home, spectacular gardens or her beautiful blog? If not, you’re in for a real treat! Make sure you vist her Early Summer Garden Tour.
