Links I Love Week 27

Happy Holiday weekend! It did not feel like the 4th of July weekend in Chicago and I completely forgot the holiday started on Friday until halfway through the day. I made my weekly trip to the farmers market to stock up on berries and fresh vegetables. My garden is coming along well! I am starting to see pops of green on the tomato vines and jalapeños. I am missing my family more than usual this weekend. I sent a care package of vanilla sablés with sprinkles to my mom and dad. I am doing a little redecorating and painting at home this weekend. More on that to come later this month.
