It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

F O U R T...

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

This post is sponsored by Newell Brands, makers of Ball® Home Canning products however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

When we moved into this house, less than 6 months ago, we had no idea that we were gaining so much more than just a roof over our heads. The home belongs to friends of our family, that we’ve known and loved for years. Just steps away, live their parents, in a home on the same property.

The day we met, they introduced themselves as “Grandma and Grandpa” and insisted that our daughters call them by those names. It didn’t take long before the girls got attached to them. I often find them helping Grandpa in the garage or sweet talking a snack out of Grandma. Watching them learn, grow and really bond with them has been such a blessing for our family. Last week, Falynn even mentioned that her favorite part of this house is that it came with a free Grandma and Grandpa.

While we have created a few family traditions already, this Summer, I wanted to make a new one, with our new family. So last weekend, Falynn and I spent the day small batch canning in Grandma’s kitchen and made spicy mixed dilly beans. I love that the recipe includes lots of dill, which was my Nana’s favorite fresh herb. It was like having a little piece of her in the kitchen with us.

Spicy Mixed Dilly Beans

A twist on classic dilly beans, this version calls for mixed string beans and spices with a strong bite. Use any variety of beans your garden or farmer's market offers, keeping in mind that red and purple beans lose their color once cooked.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs mixed yellow wax and green beans rinsed, stem ends trimmed, cut into 4 inch lengths
  • 2 1/2 cups white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp Ball Salt for Pickling and Preserving
  • 8 red Thai chili peppers (optional) a small slice lengthwise down the middle, leaving pepper intact
  • 1/2 sweet onion sliced thin lengthwise, divided into 4 portions
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tsp crushed black peppercorns
  • 8 dill sprigs

Instructions

  • Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready to use, do not boil. Wash lids in warm soapy water and set aside with bands.
  • Combine vinegars, water, sugar, and salt in a 4-quart saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve salt and sugar.
  • Place 1 clove crushed garlic, 1/2 teaspoon each mustard seeds and black peppercorns into a hot jar. Pack beans cut side up, add onion slices, 2 Thai chilis, and 2 sprigs dill into jar.
  • Ladle hot brine over beans in jar, leaving a 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rim. Center lid on jar and apply band, adjust to fingertip tight. Place jar in boiling water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
  • Process jars 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat, remove lid, let jars stand 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool 12-24 hours. Check lids for seal, they should not flex when center is pressed.

Small batch canning is a lot easier than I thought and has turned into a summer hobby for us. We made mixed berry jam and pasta sauce last year and this year, I knew I wanted to pickle something! While we had to purchase the ingredients from our local market, I’m hoping that next year, we’ll have a garden full of fresh veggies to pickle.

We use our Ball® jars for so many things.. gift giving, crafts, canning and even use them as cups! I was excited to use our new 135th celebration Ball® Aqua Vintage jars. They are so pretty and come in a variety of sizes. It’s no wonder that Ball® Home Canning remains the #1 consumer choice for mason jars in North America.

While the jars of mixed dilly beans were processing, Grandma decided to cut out pieces of fabric and Falynn picked fresh flowers from our yard, to add to the top of the jars.  It’s an easy and fun way to dress them up, for gifting purposes.

While we probably should have waited a little longer, the following day we just had to open one and see how they tasted. We wound up leaving the Thai peppers out, since we aren’t huge spicy food fans. The girls said they tasted like green beans, salt and vinegar chips and pickles, all mixed together. It might be hard to imagine that flavor combination, but I can tell you that they tasted great! We gave one jar to Grandma, to thank her for helping us and we’ve been trying to save the other two jars for a few more days, to see if they taste any different. It’s taking all of our will power.

    How lucky you are to have found a house with a Grandma and Grandpa! I always wished that I had grandparents (or stand-ins) nearby when I was a kid. My mother-in-law used to can a lot of food from their giant vegetable garden. Perhaps one day I’ll give it a try.
