Splish Splash It's a Summer Time Blog Bash!

I'm celebrating the start of summer by joining up with more than 40 other bloggers for the 

We are each offering freebies exclusive to this hop in addition to fantastic giveaways!

In the summer I look forward to...

staying up late at night and being able to sleep in the next morning.  I love working in my yard, which is a good thing since we are now starting from scratch!  We have already gotten started on the yard work trying to prepare for Jake's open house in June.  Here are a couple peeks at what we have done so far...

Here's the before of the huge flower bed we started on last weekend and finished up Wednesday night after the 18th bag of mulch!

The plants look so little, I know, but in a few years they will look fantastic!

My favorite summer activity is...

hunting for antiques at antique shows and shops.  This summer I will be on the look out for a bench or narrow table to put by the back door.

My favorite summer place is...

Petoskey, Michigan.  We have a little cottage right across the way from my mom and dad's, and we have been enjoying taking the kids "up north" for more years than I can count.  Little Traverse Bay is so beautiful and the beach at Petoskey State Park is one of my favorite places to truly relax and read a book.

My must-have summer item is...

a good book!  I read all year long, but in the summer I really enjoy the extra time to read for fun. Here are some of the best books that I have read in recent months that you might want to add to your summer reading list...

Please let me know if you have a great book I should add to my summer reading list!

Since the school year is winding down or over (for you lucky ducks out there), my freebie is something you can put to use when you get ready to go back to school once summer is over.  (I know...you don't want to think about that yet!)  

My Desk Nameplates and Banner Bundle will surely brighten up your classroom in the fall!  Print out the PDF version to hand write your students' names or use the editable PowerPoint version to type them.  Just make sure you grab it quick at my TPT Store!  It's only free during this blog hop which runs from May 25-29.  As always, feedback is greatly appreciated!

Be sure to enter my giveaway below where one lucky winner will receive a $20 Amazon gift card and will get to choose $20 in products from my TPT Store!
