Delightful Strawberry Recipes [Link Party 106]

Delightful Strawberry Recipes

May 19, 2015

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party #106! One of my favorite children’s books of all time is The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear. It’s a cute story about the lengths that a little mouse will go to in order to stop the bear from eating his freshly picked, red, ripe strawberry. I can relate. I’m pretty protective of my strawberries too, especially when I’ve found the perfect basket at the farmer’s market. These delightful strawberry recipes from participating bloggers just might bring out your protective side too. {Read more…}

Baby’s First Swim

Babys-First-Swim-SwimWaysMay 14, 2015

Nothing’s sweeter than celebrating first milestones with your firstborn. I got to participate in such a milestone when the weather warmed up enough to take Annabelle to the pool for her first swim. I packed swimsuits, sunscreen, our SwimWays baby float, and we headed to the pool for a swim day. {Read more…}

It’s a tranquil place to be and I want to share it with others. That’s why I love this gift wrap idea using only craft paper and twine. Add a sprig of flowers, dried or freshly picked, for an added touch of beauty! {Read more…}

You’re “Doin’ Good”, Mom!

Doin Good CollageMay 11, 2015

I recently celebrated my very first Mother’s Day. It’s a holiday that I have been looking forward to my entire life. Things didn’t go as planned, however, and I ended up spending 72 hours or so taking care of my feverish and teething baby instead of celebrating. “Now this is real motherhood,” I thought to myself throughout Mother’s Day weekend.

That got me thinking about how being a mother is the most wonderful job there is but it can also be the hardest job there is, too. {Read more…}

How To Create a Cookbook [Tutorial]

How To Create a CookbookApril 25, 2015

There are few things more treasured than special recipes handed down from generation to generation. Ever thought of putting your favorite recipes into a beautiful book you can give as a gift or pass down to your children? This is something that my mother has been bugging me about for years. “Let’s find a way for me to create a cookbook so that I’ll have all of our favorite recipes in one place and I can share them!” This statement has been on repeat. She’s right though. I’d love to have such a cookbook, especially now that I have a daughter of my own. Sharing family recipes has never seemed quite so important! Well, I’ve found a way to make my mom’s cookbook aspirations happen. {Read more…}
