Happy Friday friends! I’m ready for a cup of tea (or hot cocoa) and a cookie to send this week off in style. It is currently snowing here, which makes for a cozy night at home. Here are a few snapshots of what I’ve been up to lately. I also updated my website to bakingwithrachel.com so you will see lots of new features coming soon! I am ending this week tired but happy and I hope the same is true for you.
I know most of you have been on summer break for weeks now, but we just started ours and it has been so nice! I’m always a bit nervous before summer starts but we are having a great time so far. Fingers crossed it continues.
I hope you all enjoy the long weekend with family and friends and of course some tasty food to go along with it.
I hope the week treated you all well! I am finishing out this week with some thoughts on the huge role that my husband fills in our family. I am so darn thankful and I hope that Father’s Day isn’t the only day he knows it.
Besides having the job, Mike keeps our family moving forward in the right direction. He takes care of each of us in different ways and makes sure that we stay close throughout all the soccer practices and school projects. He makes us laugh and gets out the chips when we are all getting too serious. He plans the vacations, manages the finances and keeps the lawn mowed. It really is incredible. He handles the bedtime routine (thank goodness!) and takes time every evening with each child. Have I mentioned that he gets up and makes the coffee every morning? Angelic.
But I fear I don’t say it enough, how much I appreciate his tenderness and strength, his presence in all the big and small things that go into building a family.
My husband and I each grew up in a home with a loving, engaged father and I am so glad that our children are getting the same.
Below are a few pictures from the last couple weeks. Cheers!
