I shared a teeny tiny sneak peek of today’s reveal on Instagram a while back, but today I finally get to share the full reveal. I finished up my front porch makeover and have been dying to share it ever since. And considering how unusable the space was before (click through for the before photos), it’s surprisingly become one of my favorite places to hang out, even in the Atalanta heat.

The porch itself is very small and the fact that it’s the exact same layout as my upstairs balcony, felt a little daunting to tackle with another makeover. Kinda like the movie Groundhog Day – I didn’t want to repeat the same thing over again.

We’re only a few days into August, and while July was national ice cream month, I just can’t help but squeak out a little more from everyone’s favorite summer treat.

So, I’ve teamed up with Nestlé to bring you 3 (very) easy recipes, that all include a little ice cream, as a part of their ‘There’s an ice cream for that’ campaign! I’ve been taste-testing everything ahead of time and these are oh-so-ready to share. Click through for my recipes for homemade matcha waffles cones, mint chocolate chip donut sundaes, and (my favorite) a peaches and cream soda float – which can be served boozy or non-alcoholic.
