June Roundup

June Roundup

May seems to have escaped me, but I’m ready for June! June brings summer weather, picnics, cookouts, beach trips, and, for me, summer vacation. The countdown is on to the last day of school and the kids are getting antsy (maybe not only the kids…). This roundup is filled with inspiration to read at the beach, easily make in your kitchen (with little to no cooking required!) and to listen to on your morning commute. I hope you’ll find some nuggets of wisdom packed in here that will leave you feeling ready for summer!
