Beyond the Kitchen

Another week, and a new Loving Lately post. Last week I started up this little series, and I hope you are loving these fun link posts and are seeing new things that you may love!

2016 4th of July

Life Lately:

We spent 4th of July in New Hampshire with friends. We kayaked, hung by the lake, played games, BBQ’ed, made a gin bucket (my new favorite thing), and all sorts of fun stuff!

Jax obviously loved life in New Hampshire. If you follow me on Snapchat (Lexiscleankitch) you saw him swimming (his favorite), romping around the woods, and just him living that good dog life!

We came home in time for dinner with friends and fireworks! A great way to wrap up the weekend. 

This week I’ve been getting back on track with my eating after the long weekend, and busy working to create new recipes for you, retesting book recipes before this baby goes off to the printer (YAY), and all sorts of fun new things for Lexi’s Clean Kitchen.
