July was quick but memorable for me. It represented my first full month of blogging and things have swiftly taken shape. I would like to express my gratitude towards all of you for your continued support, comments, and interest. This passion of mine is definitely something I enjoy sharing with others and it means a great deal to me knowing that you are enjoying it as well.
The two most popular recipes for July were of course the Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding Parfait and the Sweet Cherry Ice Cream. If you missed either one of those two gems, be sure to check them out as they are delicious standouts that are easy to make.
On the personal side, July was a time for getting together with friends and family, celebrating holidays and birthdays, and soaking up this incredible hot and sunny summer we have had here in Oregon. I think it is one of the warmest summers that I can remember thus far. A true gift for this California girl! Speaking of birthdays, we celebrated a major milestone for my youngest son as he turned 16! Yes, I know, all of us parents always say how fast time goes and before we know it, our babies are grown. Now he is a licensed driver cruising around town and I have to say, it is a weird but welcome feeling.
Now we are heading into August and there are many things I am looking forward to. One of which is sharing with all of you more of my recipes. I would love to hear from you about some of your July highlights or maybe some things you are looking forward to in the month ahead. So share away!
