Wild Blueberries made into Jam on Flee Fly Flown

It’s been a week of catch-up after my Michigan hiatus last week. A lovely time spent in my home town of Traverse City and at our cabin.

The bonus of the trip? An especially abundant wild blueberry crop this year; Our property was ripe for the picking. Between a few of us, we probably picked about 20 cups of blueberries. I brought 10 cups home: 4 went toward making Wild Blueberry Jam, 5 have been frozen for a pie a little later in the summer and the rest went into my husband’s Blueberry / Cherry Bourbon infusion. I just might turn into Violet by the time this baby is born!

But enough about my blueberry blitz. I hope you had a great week and enjoyed some of the sunshine. If it doesn’t last through the weekend in your part of the world, here are a few links to occupy some of your time:

> Did you check out my playlist last week? What’d you think?

> My friend pinned this fox embroidery kit this week. I love it and want it.

> In the mood for some new shoes.

> Can’t wait to have a waist again so I can wear this dress.

> Might give these chocolate zucchini brownies a try this weekend.

> My husband (and friend) made this table (with a few adjustments)for our dining room and it turned out awesome. He white washed it and I love it.

Now get outside and enjoy the summer!

3 Sisters in the Woods | Flee Fly Flown

{My sisters and me at our old cabin. I’m the little one on the left.}

Happy Friday! As I jump back on the blogging wagon, I thought I’d dive in with a Friday link round-up. It’s been another busy week as I get ready for a little R&R next week in Michigan in Traverse City then at my family’s cabin.

In that spirit – today’s links have a bit of a road trip, great outdoors feel to it.

> Skillets are outdoorsy, right? How about a skillet chocolate chip cookie with caramel & sea salt?

> And S’mores Cheesecake. (Can you tell my sweet tooth has kicked in?)

> Love this table.

> Just had my hair colored. Will use this cute scarf tutorial to keep it covered at the lake! 

> Comfy pants for the beach.

> Grab a blanket! We’re heading to the bonfire.

I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you next week!

Montpezat, France | Exploring the well in 2010

By now you may well have thought me lost and gone, perhaps fallen down a well. The last two months have been a whirlwind, leaving me pretty much just treading water.

Within the last two months we went on our trip to Alaska (words / photos cannot do it justice. Beautiful), sold our condo (hooray!), found a place to rent (a charming upper duplex), moved, made and sent a few custom blankets through my Etsy shop all while continuing to grow a baby. I’m finally coming up for air and ready get back in the swing of things.

So don’t give up on me yet! I’ve got some posts in the works all for you. In the meantime, since I’m sitting here watching Wet Hot American Summer, I’ll point you toward my ‘Camp Wanderlust‘ series from a couple summers ago. Enjoy perusing the posts dedicated to the time honored tradition of summer camp and I’ll be back later this week!

Stay tuned,
