My computer has been acting up a little bit so I couldn’t finish up the post I was working on so I thought instead I just have some peony pictures for today.

This gray tufted bench from HomeGoods is still one of my favorite finds for this room.

The first time I went to Jon’s parent’s home his mother made a strawberry pie. I am not really a pie person, but this pie was absolutely delicious and has been a summer favorite of mine ever since. She shared the recipe with me and we have enjoyed making it every year during strawberry season.

Our Uncle Bob had a sign with this F. Scott Fitzgerald quote on it that had a prominent place at his home and I know every time I see this quote it brings so many fond memories to me and probably most of our family members, so this particular sign that we are introducing has particular sentimental value to us.
