currently crushing on and 5 recipes to try I

I’m super struggling coming back to reality this weekend when we leave our vacation. Have you ever had a vacation that didn’t leave you feeling relaxed? YES. That is this. So good but also so weird and Eddie feels the same and we can’t figure out whyyyy.

Seriously excited that it’s a holiday weekend/week though! I love the 4th of July, even though inside my anxious brain it makes me feel like the summer is almost over (yeah I’m the worst). What are your plans for the 4th?

Later this weekend I’ll have up my beauty and lifestyle favorites, so keep your eyes peeled! Annnd I included five of my favorite (of course) summer recipes below!

Faves of the week:
