Wishing all the dads out there, a very happy Fathers Day. To my own- Dad, love you more than words can say and feel so incredibly lucky to have you as my dad. I learn from you every day and the examples you set are ones to aspire to, both for me and my kids. We are all SO lucky to have you. I am surrounded by great men, my husband and dad. My boys are so unbelievably lucky to have my husband as their father, so I feel very fortunate on both ends. Both are men of integrity, strong character, discipline and epitomize what being a gentleman is. I am very very lucky! Wishing all the dads out there, a very happy day and hope it’s one showered with attention and love:) Hoping late day rain does not thwart our outdoor BBQ plans! Onwards to my Seven on Sunday this week…… ________________________________________ 1 A GORGEOUS HOME IN PROVENCE FOR RENT! How gorgeous is this! I have wanted to rent a house for a month in Provence for a very long time. I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet! I think next year could be my year, 2020- 20 is one of my favorite numbers and I just have a good feeling:) This incredible home has me dreaming about escaping for a few weeks to the countryside of Provence, biking to the local market, coming home and preparing a feast and dining under the stars while the scent of lavender permeates through the air.

The first time I made it a few weeks ago I swear I could have downed the entire pitcher, good thing friends were stopping by! So easy and SO good! Rosé Lemonade Elderflower Sangria This Rosé Lemonade Elderflower Sangria is the most refreshing summer cocktail! It’s super easy to make, only 5 ingredients, and is easily multiplied to serve a crowd! All you need is dry rosé, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a touch of simple syrup for sweetness, elderflower liquer, and a splash of seltzer. Absolutely delicious and dangerously good! Found at Spices in my DNA, where I have found some other fantastic recipes, click here. 5 ounces rosé* 1 ounce elderflower liqueur 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 ounce simple syrup* splash of seltzer water sliced strawberries lemon slices fresh mint for garnish Instructions Fill a glass with crushed ice. Add a lemon slice and a few strawberry slices. I like to push them down a little bit too. Add the rosé, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, and simple syrup and stir to combine. Add a splash of seltzer water and stir again. Top with more sliced strawberries and a sprig of fresh mint. Enjoy! 7 SUNDAYS SURVEY This is about meat. Do you eat it? I used to but no longer do, as of about a year ago. Every now and then I will have chicken but less and less. I feel my best when I have lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and other lean/healthy foods. I feel like fewer are eating meat but maybe it’s just my own circle of friends. Not sure, one of the things that has been challenging is if we have someone over for dinner or a BBQ, I will still buy and prepare meat but truth be told, I enjoy it less and less and often have a hard time with it. All my sons and husband love meat so it’s not going anywhere fast in this household but I am curious how much company I have out there? Which statement is most accurate regarding you and meat? ________________________________________ And that is a wrap for this Sunday. Hope you enjoyed the post, thank you as always for stopping in. Wishing you a fabulous day! Until next time……. PS All new arrivals are 20% today and tomorrow! There have been many new things added so definitely come check them out.
