Life Lately

…has been amazing.  Somewhat crazy, but truly amazing.  I started a new job, which I am really enjoying.  We have taken multiple road trips which led to one of the most amazing Memorial Day weekends which included hearing the band that played our wedding reception, celebrating the wedding of my beautiful cousin, Erica, and spending some down time with tons of amazing food and family at the lake.

I could use another weekend like that.

I picked these from our backyard.  Do you say “pe-oh-nee” or “pe-uh-nee”?  I go back and forth because I just don’t know.

Paul’s uncle’s band which played for our wedding reception. Love these guys!

And as usual, Paul ended up on stage.

These boys.

Love this guy.  To pieces.

Memorial day is not complete without one of these.

My mom shared this with me, remembering my Grammy. I miss her every day!

I hope your summer has kicked off to an amazing start…I can’t wait to see what it brings!

And with all of this life-living I have been doing, I have not been spending much time in the kitchen.  However, I know my priorities are in order and I promise to cook and share whenever I get the chance!

    Love this post so much! I agree with Sommer that life’s everyday moments are truly the most special. As are peonies, no matter how you say it. 🙂

    Well, you know what they say…”Life is what happens when you’re too busy doing something else.” The kitchen can wait!

    Girlfriend, you are blessed! And, congrats on the new day job! Being grateful will always bring you more blessings. Thank you for sharing your snapshots and snippets. Love them all. You and your guy look so happy together and make such a sweet couple! (I’ll never forget the story of his proposal to you…in the boat he built.) God will always show you the way! xo

    I am loving all of your photos, especially the lake photo. We were robbed out of Memorial Day weekend (50’s and raining) so I am desperate for that first weekend at the lake!! Can’t wait to see you soon. 🙂

    Love your post, Cassie. Love the pic of you and Paul. Not being in the kitchen is just fine – you need to take a break and enjoy! Love the recap. See you next week!

    Love the picture of you and Paul. I’m so easily destructed and can’t put priorities in order when there are so many things going on and I get really stressed (like right now…), and it’s great that you are doing well and you inspired me to figure out and live better! 🙂 Gorgeous peonies…so elegant!

    Loved all this fun family goodness you packed into the weekend. What is it about Memorial Day that just begs for watermelons?

    I’m so glad you’re loving your new job! And those flowers are gorgeous. All I have is a patio with a dead basil plant that I’m too lazy to dispose of. Oh well.

    Btw, you are absolutely gorgeous in that picture with Paul!
