Happy August ~ Letter From The Editor

Saturday, August 1, 2015

August? Is it really August? How can that be? We are half way through summer vacation and gearing up for a full second half which includes an annual vacation to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. In addition to our vacation, we have a few day trips planned, a visit to Jenkinson's Boardwalk, and of course, shopping for school supplies and clothes.

Here on the blog, we're not letting go of summer just yet. We'll be featuring quick and easy entertaining ideas for happy hour at home, a recipe for pasta salad that's easy to make and take, and light bites that are delicious and perfect to make when the weather is just too darn hot, and I'll be sharing our vacation diary from our trip to Rehoboth Beach.

Of course, on everyone's mind is back to school. You'll find tips for getting organized (both you and the kids), fashions, and our favorite supplies and healthy lunch box ideas. Back to school shopping isn't just for the kiddos. I'll share a few ideas for a back to school version of shopping for grown ups as well.

You'll rely on all your favorite regular posts as well including What We're Reading, Best Online Reads, Friday's Fresh Picks, Best Beauty Buys, and Menu Plan Monday. And of course, if there's a topic you'd love to see covered or featured, I want to know! Please email me at piecesofamom {at} gmail {dot} com with your suggestions.

Enjoy the dog days of summer!
