Monthly Must-Haves (July)


"'Hope Runs' is a great summer read! It is written from two perspectives: one from a missionary's point of view and one from a boy growing up in an orphanage. I love the cultural miscommunication stories. It's a story of God working out all things."

-- Ashley


"I'm super excited about this pineapple slicer I found on Amazon.  It's on major sale right now, and paired with a fresh pineapple, will make the perfect housewarming gift.  Plus, pineapples have been a sign of hospitality since the colonial days...impress others with this little known fact!"

-- Jenn


Scarves are, by far, my favorite summer accessory. They add such a unique flare to any outfit. This Old Navy American flag scarf is the perfect combination of vintage and festive. Pick one up for your upcoming Independence Day party!



CSAs, Community Supported Agriculture, are great programs to support local farms and for the consumer to eat organic foods. To find local CSAs in your own area, go to  If there isn't one near you, local farmers markets are great too for finding in season produce.



I have been super into different types of cold/salad-y foods lately since it's so hot here in Texas. Here's one I made for dinner tonight and lunches this week... soooooo good! 



See You In The Round!
