Happy July ~ Letter From The Editor

Friday, July 1, 2016

It finally feels like summer is in full swing. Early morning walks give way to afternoons at the pool followed by dinners on the deck. Yes! Summer is here.

Here at Pieces of a Mom, the editorial calendar is shaping up nicely. This month will focus on healthy living, including fitness, food, and fun. I'll also be detailing a camping trip that we are taking (remember my summer to-do list?), and listing some resources I've been using to pull our camping trip together. Look for a few features on summer fashion for moms and tween girls.

Old favorites such as Best Online Reads, Friday Fresh Picks, and Menu Plan Monday will be front and center as will a couple new monthly features. Stay tuned!

As you wait for these stories and more to unfold, here are a few fan favorites from June.

Have guests from out-of-town visiting? Bake up a batch of chocolate cheesecake muffins for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Stuck in a rut in the kitchen? You'll find the cooking inspiration you need right here.
Looking for a fun gift or gadget for yourself or someone else? I rounded up a few for Friday Fresh Picks.

Because we are all suckers for a good beach read, here's my summer reading list.

If reading isn't your thing, but exploring it. Here's my summer to-do list.


A whimsical pool float, such as this box of popcorn.
If you crave the smell of the beach but aren't anywhere near one, then you'll want this perfume. REPLICA Beach Walk is heaven on your pulse points.

When you just want to kick back and relax on your deck or patio, a pair of denim cut offs is a must.

Show your American pride in this patriotic scarf.
