Happy Sunday! My family and I are having a blast this weekend in the mountains of Tennessee with my friend Edie and her family. The Internet connection is not so good, but the fishing is fantastic! 🙂  I had so much fun this week checking out all your fantastic warm-weather recipes & projects–it definitely got me in the mood for summer! It is always so hard to choose, but here is what I loved this week…..
