Welcome to June! Here is a look back on some of the happenings that went on in May.

Peony season arrived in North Carolina and Instagram had a field day with it’s favorite flower. I did my best to pitch in with that one. Peonies are my favorite flower and I love love love when they come out in the spring. The gardens are gorgeous.

Speaking of gardens, my parents’ garden is amazing. Green and purple and pink and white and lush, absolutely lush. Everything was bright and beautiful in May, with rain bringing even bolder colors. Also worth noting, the college spring semester finished up so my siblings came home!

Strawberry season arrived, and while we haven’t had a chance to go pick our own strawberries, we loved seeing all of the fresh red berries popping up at the farmers’ markets. Berries are one of my favorite parts about summer, and I’m so excited to stock up on them throughout the season.

We ended the month with a packed Memorial Day weekend, filled with friends, family and food. It kicked off with a beautiful farewell garden party for one of Will’s college friends, complete with magnolias, candles, outdoor dining, a three-course meal, lovely conversation, and the state toast.

On Memorial Day we popped over to make brunch and spend the day with my family. We have done this for the past few years, and it is always fun to spend the morning in the kitchen with sweet breads in the oven, fruit on the table, and big band patriotic music on the playlist. And of course, all of the red, white and blue, gingham and stripes we can find.

    what made you think that memorial day fam pic was a good idea…? Here’s what my family looks like in the morning after they’re all bloated from breakfast, no one really has makeup on and everyones hair looks horrible because there was a 98% humidity that morning. Also they all thought horizontal stripes was an okay idea.
