I love the carefree days(at least the thought of) spent with family & kids, the sun drenched days, the sprinkles of rain and maybe a thunderstorm or two, NO homework, BBQs... the list goes on, yet the days end too soon.
3 Things to Make this The Best Summer Ever!
1. Try something new!
Whether it's a new activity, a place to visit, a new park or recipe, you'll never know what might become a family favorite without trying new things.
2. Create a Summer Bucket List
We have been creating summer bucket lists for years now and I can't believe what a difference it has made. Now our summer days are sprinkled with things we actually want to do
3. Take Pictures
The only thing sweeter than a summer day is reliving them with pictures. I know it sounds silly, but it is easy to forget.
May you continue to Celebrate Everyday... for there is much to be thankful for. It has certainly been a year of blessings, memories and a few challenges sprinkled in.

Pepper Pot Day
According to the legend........... During the Revolutionary war, the Continental army was camped at Valley Forge. The winter was cold and harsh. Conditions were deplorable. Food was often scarce. George Washington asked his army's chef to prepare a meal for the army, that would both warm them, and boost their moral. The chef found scraps of tripe, small bits of meat and some peppercorn. He mixed this in with some other ingredients, and created Pepper Pot soup, also known as "Philadelphia Pepper Pot soup”. The hot, and somewhat spicy soup, was well received by the troops. It was called "the soup that won the war”.
