I found comfort this weekend and stayed cool during the heat wave with some good old iced sweet tea... and this amazingly sweet and tangy apricot-blackberry galette! It is seriously the easiest recipe ever an the filling can be pretty much any type of berry other summer fruit you love. Thank god the recipe makes two servings, because I pretty much ate the whole thing during my taste test (couldn't stop eating). No worries, if you're not ready for two pies, the second dough can be frozen for up to three weeks.
If you want to go all-out and really spoil yourself, add some whipped cream or ice cream.. or both because you know, summer is short!
You can find this easy-peasy recipe here.
Here is to a good start to the week. So long, long weekend! xo

My latest pictures of the house actually resemble a home! We're at the last stretch and every day we can see it coming together. First the paint color, then the stairs, moulding being put up, installing the kitchen floor... the satisfaction of seeing tangible progress can't be compared. The to-do list is still a mile long but there is still so much to look forward to.
I'm not the most organized person, however my fiancé and I have learned a "lazy" yet effective way of keeping track of our choices for the home. Whether we were picking out our brick or choosing ceramic for the showers, we take pictures of everything and I catalogue them on my computer. This way, we remember exactly what floor we ordered 6 months ago, or where our main air ducts run through the house.
Occasionally, you may find a lost selfie between the ceramic choices, but hey, it's just a tip!
Any tips/tricks you'd like to share?
