celebrating Liam’s birthday with family // links to this outfit

TGIF, my friends! We’ve got sunshine and 90 degrees on tap for this weekend, so I’m looking forward to spending some time outside…but in some form of water. We have a little blow up pool and water table for Liam to play with at our house, or we’ll be inviting ourselves over to my sister’s pool!

We celebrated Liam’s first birthday this week! He’s in such a fun stage right now, walking everywhere, picking up on everything, and growing into his personality every day. It’s been really enjoyable for me to have full days with him a couple times a week when Mike is at work. We’re still figuring out our groove with our new schedule, but I look forward to my days with him when it’s just the two of us from morning ’til bedtime.

Mike and I started watching Mare of Easttown on HBOMax last week and we’re already caught up to the current episode! It’s really good, if you need a binge-worthy show.

With summer weather here, I’m in the mood to make some fun cocktails! What’s your favorite summer drink? I love a margarita or some sort of boozy lemonade.
