August and I have a love hate relationship. Growing up it meant super hot days in the fields bringing in hay, and it wasn’t all that much fun. 

It also is my birthday month, which meant one day of the month I DIDN’T have to do chores and we got to go to the beach and eat cake if the weather was nice. 

So, in celebration of my birthday month (and not having to haul hay anymore!) I am sharing my absolute favorite things to eat, drink and make on my birthday!

rope coil vessels
I LOVE handmade baskets and I have a similar project ready to make and  I can’t wait!

Raw Carrot Cake Bites
Mmmm I love carrot cake. This was a tasty alternative to the sugar junk filled ones you normally find recipes for!
Have fun this summer with these budget-friendly DIY Summer projects.
I like filling my summer with fun little projects here and there. This is a great way to get the creative juices flowing or for a quick idea to something you already have in mind!
How to Make Woven Wish Bracelets
My daughter was given an adorable friendship bracelet making kit for her birthday so we have really enjoyed spending part of our summer doing that. Even though she’s still quite young, it was nice to make them, brought back memories of when I was a little girl!
