Saturday Snapshots Week Thirteen

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to Saturday Snapshots Week Thirteen.  Nothing unlucky here this week.  Are you feeling summer yet?  Around here that H word we in the South hate – humidity – has come to town.  No one invited you. 

Pools are opening, camps are starting back this year for the kids and many are finally traveling.  I’m loving all the pictures of Yellowstone, kid’s first trip to see Mickey, family get togethers and local events happening.

What’s going on around your town?

I’m working on a few new things on the blog that will show up over the next few weeks so stay tuned.  Don’t worry, you are still going to find plenty of new things for the home, food, and travel.

ICYMI this week:

Read about my son driving a Porsche around the PORSCHE EXPERIENCE CENTER IN ATLANTA (sometimes 100 mph), yes a Mother will always worry. 


What’s some of your favorite flavors of summer?  Combine watermelon and lemons for this refreshing WATERMELON AND MINT LEMONADE


A favorite dish for a cookout or to take to one is the BROCCOLI AND BACON SALAD.  Easy to start early in the day and finish up later.

Planning a trip to Atlanta – CityPASS is the way to go to help in planning and saving a little money.

  1. Thanks so much, Rosemary for including our glass jar lamp project! And sister, I am so with you about worrying mamas! We never stop being a mom no matter the child age!!

    1. Yes – and kids don’t get it. Still get that eye roll sometimes. Love the lamp. I may get brave and try it, I tend to stay away from electrical stuff.
