High Five Memorial Day Friday

Is it just me or did Memorial Day weekend totally sneak up on us this year?! I'm scrambling to make some fun plans for us.

Here are my favorites from the week, otherwise known as my High Five Friday:

1. How Should Home Feel?

That's the question that Linda asked this week. My Northern Michigan childhood doesn't actually sound too different from hers in the Valley. This is definitely a question I'm going to be mulling over...

2. Raising a Garden

Emily A. Clark is building her own raised garden and we can follow along. I'm hoping to get at least a patio pot of tomatoes this year. #blackthumb

3. Two Houses
I don't often read something that feels like someone looked into my soul and wrote my story but this had that effect. Some of my thoughts on our sitch from the past can be found here and here.

4. Macarons

Baking a Moment

My daughter is at the age where she just loves her American Girl. This year's girl is Grace who, upon returning from a summer trip to Paris, opens La Petite Patisserie with her friends. To celebrate finishing one of the books in the series and a night with no homework for either kid (one positive to standardized testing!), we went to this little East Lansing shop for treats. I'll have to give Baking a Moment's recipe a whirl. They're gluten-free.

5. Pineapple Rain

I adore this photo I snapped of my daughter earlier this week during a quick rain shower. It reminded me of this song Have you ever seen the rain? by Creedence Clearwater Revival
from my childhood; a song that always reminds me of my dad.

And here's an interesting article about how some enterprising people are using IG to make a fortune. For the record, I chose the heels. #unsponsored

Happy Memorial Day! God bless our troops!
