Summer in the Backyard! + Engaged!

Well, hello there garden lovers!

Today I wanted to share with you a few peaks into my summer garden!

It's been quite a busy + exciting summer (my significant other of 5+ years proposed!)... and even though I haven't been updating this blog lately, I have definitely been gardening!

Lemon Queen sunflower
Totally a Pinterest-inspired scene... ha, love mason jars + wine!
Italian Genovese basil
Biggest zucchini I've ever seen!

I will be posting engagement photos very soon! We had them taken last week in Lake Arrowhead, CA... literally on the lake! It was an amazingly beautiful setting, and will in fact be the location of our wedding!

P.S. If you are wondering what I did with my giant zucchini... I made these!

*If you end up making them... you may want to add about 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to the recipe, so that they come out a dark chocolate-brown color. :)

Have a lovely day!
