July is, without a doubt, my favorite month of the year! Why? Because the weather is perfect (90 degrees and 90% humidity), my favorite holiday is the 4th of July, and my birthday is at the end of the month! It really doesn’t get any better than that, now does it?This year, July was especially wonderful and I can’t wait to share it with you today in the 5th edition of “Moments that Matter”.
In case you’re a new reader, here’s the scoop- this monthly series will give an up close look at what life on the Chesapeake Bay is all about. Through photos of our adventures, our family, and scenes from the Bay area, we hope to give you a taste of what inspires us (and our food).
July brought us plenty of sunshine, hours spent splashing in the pool, and many wonderful memories with family and friends. We went blueberry picking, peach picking, and the backyard garden really started to take off. Shaun and I spent as much time as we could outside with the boys, but we also managed to sneak away for a weekend to attend the Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival (see which Food Network celebrity I got to meet)!
The month of July was action-packed and full of fun. I was sad to see it end, but August has been equally exciting so far!
