It’s officially summer - yay!
I love summer, probably because I’m a summer baby. The days are longer, there’s sunshine and there’s tons to do. We didn’t get much of a spring but it looks like summer is making an appearance and I’m grateful for the warmer weather, and the opportunity to wear all these cute summer dresses.
Summer is also prime vacation season and I’m itching to take a trip, but we have no idea where to! William and I also have a difference of opinion on if it should be an adults-only trip (his vote) or a family trip (my vote). We've looked at cruises and a few resorts but the pricing is best in late August/early September, which is prime hurricane time. Also flights from our home airport are absymal which is a shame considering we live in a Delta hub (tho I suppose that’s why our flight prices are so ridiculous). I may do a long weekend in Vegas with my line sister, but I’d really love to do a family trip, even if it’s just a road trip to a resort or cabin up north. I just need a nice place that won’t cost us an arm and a leg.
Where should we go for a vacation with our 2 year old?

This week I was selected for my second test knit! I’m working on a cowl knit in super bulky yarn so it should knit up really quickly.
Also World Knit in Public Day is next Saturday - I plan to join a local knit shop at a local museum for a few hours of knitting.
Sephora sent me a coupon code via the app, so I took a stroll through my local store last week and discovered that Dr Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water is back! I absolutely loved it and was so sad when I saw it was gone, but looks like they tweaked it and then restocked. It’s an awesome product to take off makeup or just cleanse your skin without water.
