This past Friday my manuscript was due, so I’ve been scurrying, testing last-minute recipes, shooting, and writing a whole lot in order to make the deadline. Turning it in felt epic. And this past weekend was the first few days I’ve had off in a while, and even then I was working. But there’s something about working from bed that doesn’t feel like it actually counts as real work, so I feel back to normal, refreshed and ready to have another busy-ass week.
Phew! I don’t always say this but I CANNOT believe June is already over. I wish it wasn’t. I wish I could do it all over again. June was pretty cool. I feel like April was a big gigantic downer but June was different. It was full of a lot of productive work on my book. Lots of failed recipes. I’m talking TONS, but a few really good winners.
In between work and more work, were moments that were pretty amazing, mainly CORG-A-BUNGA. We’ll get to that later, but first…
I want to share a picture of the pie that bugged me to no end. After a million times making it I realized it wasn’t my fault. Peaches leech way too much water and it messes up the custard over and over again. So goodbye, peach custard pie. Goodbye, I will not miss you.
This month was a bit of a mixed bag. There was strep throat, hella stressful days, the most horrific heatwave to date…all weaved throughout some really good days. All in all, I’m glad May is over and I’m super excited for June and just summer in general. Go summer!
May kicked off with a trip to Palm Springs.
Amelia gets really nervous when people are swimming in the pool. So, she figures if she jumps in to be near you, all will be ok. Look at that form!
I mean, those toes. I can stare at this picture all day long.
