Weekend Links and Photos

Pinch me, because today and tomorrow I am working on a story with one of my very favourite magazines, in the comforts of my own backyard.

The kids and I are preserving summer produce with a few friends and a crew is here to style and photograph it all as we work (play, really).  I’m hoping I’ll be able to post a few behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram. Speaking of, are you following me there? I post my garden hauls, share what’s in the boys lunchboxes, and anything I happen to be currently crushing on…

Now here’s what I loved around the web this week:

And of course a few photos from the week:

kids lunch

One of the last leisurely lunches before the boys returned to school. Clara ask about them at least ten times a day. She misses them so much.


We’re spending more mornings at the market watching the seasons merge in an array of colours.

Spinach crepes with berry butter

Currently obsessed with: spinach crepes, whipped berry butter, and fresh berries tossed with honey butter. Speak up in the comments if you want the recipe for these.

messy baker

Also loving this cookbook from fellow Canadian blogger, Charmian. Tantalizing recipes, beautiful photos and entertaining writing.

August harvest

Harvest has been good this week. Tomatoes rule.

Have a wonderful long weekend, all!
