I don’t know why, but this Sunday I feel particularly alive. I have been reading a lot of blogs about life in general and I feel that so many people have been sharing their true stories. Not just the pretty pictures or perfect family meals, but the true struggles and surprises we all go through. So I thought that for today’s Sunday links I’d share a few real stories and few pretty ideas.
Who here has been to Myrtle Beach, SC? If you haven’t, it is the summer playground of the Carolinas. And right in the heart of Myrtle Beach is a cafe and bakery called Croissants. Since 1995, the owner of Croissants, Heidi Vukov, has been keeping folks coming back for more of her amazing pastries and her unique way of infusing Southern charm into her old world style of cooking. And now you can experience it for yourself in her new cookbook, Bonjour Y’all!

This week was a whopper for me! The kids went back to school and the routine began. As much as I love having a routine, it can sometimes be tough to get back into it! So once the kids were at school, I played catch up all week. You know, just those little things that needed to get done (i.e., cleaning). So I am really happy to be sitting down and sharing with you some AMAZING projects in this edition of Sunday Links.
The joke with all of my friends is that we deserve champagne on the first day of school to celebrate surviving the summer. That joke got me to thinking, mimosas perhaps? What about swapping the champagne for prosecco and diluting it a bit. And making it peachy! So I came up with these great cocktails for a mom’s morning celebration, whether it’s the first day of school or just a regular Wednesday.
Yesterday was my children’s first day of school. They kept telling me to stop being so happy about them going back to school. I can’t help it! I love back to school time. I was that kid who had to organize her desk just so and sharpen all of my pencils and write my name as neatly as possible inside all of my notebooks. Sleep never came to me the night before the first day of school. Now, with my children, I find myself more excited than they are. Mostly because I love the organization and the schedule we have during the school year. So, of course, I had to send in a teacher gift on the first day, just to share my enthusiasm. This one was very easy and can be pulled off in less than 5 minutes. Seriously.
It’s that time of year…. back to school time! I don’t know about you, but I am jumping for joy! I miss having a schedule. I miss my kids seeing their friends every day. I miss having my time to create, uninterrupted. So back to school is a joyous occasion, for me, at least. One thing I don’t enjoy though is packing lunches. My kids are picky eaters and it just gets boring. However, I have found a few great products that will make packing school lunch a breeze. Plus they are colorful and fun! (affiliate links used)
