Here are the resources, moments, places, things, and memories from June that were my favorites.
Ping pong — My parents graciously allowed me and Joe to take their ping pong table when we got married, and we’ve been making good use of it. I’m the reigning ping pong champ in our house, but we have a lot of fun playing together.
Educated by Tara Westover — I read this incredible memoir weeks ago, but I’m still thinking about it. It may be the best book I’ve read in 2019 so far.
Same Page Summer — This summer Bible reading plan has been phenomenal. I wrote it about it here, but all the women in my church are doing this plan and we’re reading through the New Testament over the summer. It’s been so encouraging.
Garlic fingers — Aka, cheese pizza minus the tomato sauce and replaced with garlic butter (for all you non-Canadians). It’s currently Joe’s and my Sunday treat. Within two blocks of me, there are 4 pizza places (that all sell garlic fingers). This is very exciting for me.
The library — I’m on a mission to visit every branch in my library’s system (yes, I’m a nerd). In the process, I’ve felt a renewed appreciation for how amazing the library is and how blessed we are to have access to it. Take advantage of it!
Spotify — How else would I get a commercial-free soundtrack for my chores, our ping pong matches, cooking supper, or responding to emails?
Playing piano — I finally got a keyboard in my new house after having access to a piano my whole life. I’m no pro at playing the piano, but I do love it, and it’s super restful and relaxing for me.
What Should I Read Next? — This podcast is a book lover’s dream. Anne Bogel (of the blog, Modern Mrs. Darcy) has interesting guests on to recommend books for them.
Charcuterie boards — The simplest supper ever (especially for summer). There are endless options and variety. We’re big fans.
