Hi, friends. It’s been an awful week (year?) and we still have so many people in harm’s way with hurricanes, floods, fires, and horrible rightwing politics. I know so many people are feeling scared and emotionally depleted from everything going on and I am with you. Keep holding on to positive thoughts for the future and your compassion for those who are struggling even more. Big hugs to everyone! I hope you find some joy this weekend and find ways to help — it’s really the only cure for the doldrums created by both political and natural storms. You’re all in my thoughts. xo Jen

You guys, how is it already the end of August?? This summer is going by in a flash and I intend to make the most of the end of summer with plenty of time with friends coming to stay with us and making some escapes to the coast and fruit and flower farms. Also, patio times and ice cream and roses and and and… how can we fit everything in?? I love fall, but I’m not quite ready. I hope you have a magical weekend and get to savor the last days before the leaves fall. xo Jen

Lovely Things #9

Lookie here! It’s another Lovely Things post in less than one month. I almost made my Cool Summer Drink Recipes post a Lovely Things roundup, but decided I’ll keep these posts more varied for things that I feature. I think the common threads in #9 are gold, mint, and dipping a toe into fall with the heat of summer still at your back. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

I love this whole look — especially the sunglasses and the jumpsuit.

Cool Summer Drink Recipes

If you’ve been following me @honeykennedy on instagram this summer, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, baking, pickling, and syrup making this year and really making the most of our amazing farm share from Helsing Junction Farms and all the herbs, roses, berries, and tomatoes I’m growing in our garden. I recently made my own Ginger Vanilla Thyme Simple Syrup to add to soda water, cocktails, and other quick, happy-making recipes. I also made Lavender Rose Mint Simple Syrup that I’ve been enjoying over fruit and yogurt several times a week. I love simple drinks made with fresh and interesting flavor combos, so I put together a little roundup with some cocktails and mocktails that have sparked my interest lately. Have fun and feel free to ask me about making simple syrups!
