June has been simultaneously busy and quiet, hectic and relaxing. After a few fun weeks of traveling, exploring new places, celebrating birthdays and weddings, and visiting with family, I landed at home with nothing much in particular to do. While both halves of my month have been gratifying and fulfililng, I must say that I’ve been relishing the unstructured, open-ended time that this summer has afforded me thus far.
Much of it has been spent writing new blog posts, researching and experimenting with fun recipes, and planning and working towards the upcoming opening of my Etsy store (date TBD)!!! I feel grateful to have this restorative time to rest after a strenuous first year of graduate school. I’ve been enjoying spending time outdoors and have been absolutely LOVING the rewarding experience of planting and maintaining a community garden plot! All-in-all, I must say that life is treating me well, and for that I am very grateful.
June has also brought some fun new blog posts in a variety of categories. Below are my favorites in each!
Skin & Body Care
31 Ways to Use a Lemon Peel (This article could probably fit in each of these categories)
For Your Sweet Tooth
Savory & Delicious Recipes
Gluten-Free Chinese Dumplings (I seriously can’t get enough of dumplings)
I hope you’ll enjoy checking out the creative and unique articles, links, and recipes that I’ve listed here. Be well and keep enjoying your summer! Cheers!
