One of my favorite things about the summer season is going to a farmer's market late in the afternoon on a weekend with locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables available at your fingertips. Seeing all the yummy food there is kind of thrilling and it's always fun to branch out of your comfort zone a bit to decide on what you're having for lunch (nan bread please!). And right as I was leaving, I was super tempted to pick up a big bag of fresh kettle popcorn, but resisted with all the willpower I had left! Some things are just so hard to say no to.
Three words to describe my weekend?
Warm. Local. Strawberries.
It has been a long time since I've done some consistent posting around here. My little "blogging break" was totally unplanned and greatly needed. I wanted to live in the moment more, enjoy life as it comes, and unplug just a bit. Taking some nice photos, going new places, exploring just a bit. And after 8 plus days of a blogging hiatus, I have begun to miss my little corner of the Web -- I missed sharing with all my lovely readers!
With the summer season coming up, I've decided to dedicating just enough time for blogging and life, learning to balance the two and sharing the journey with you all as I go. I am going to blog more and get back on a consistent blogging schedule slowly and steadily (as the saying goes "slow and steady wins the race").
Thank you all for being so patient, things are going to get more normal around here. You have my word for it.
It's Saturday! And yet I'm posting Friday favorites on a Saturday. Life has been getting in the way and I was deciding whether or not to even post this week's favorites, but I figured I owe you guys one anyway :) Here's this week's Saturday picks:
This month flew by! I can't believe it's almost May. May is the opening to summer, and I just adore the warm weather, local farmer's market and delicious ice cream waiting for me... Here's this month's highlights:
Want to sponsor Modern Buttercup in May? (You know you want to! Especially with this adorable kitty photo). Promote your blog, shop, or business to readers who love being inspired, fashion, photography and all things pretty. Give your shop a little limelight next month and reserve your spot on the sidebar in May! I'd love to have you on the team!
