Summer with a Chance of Link-Ups | {Features}

Oh my goodness it was hard to pick my favorites! You all linked up sooooo many amazing posts/projects! Before I went crazy and featured every single entry, I limited myself to five of my favorites! Each one represented summer to me personally. Also, you can check out Kate's features here.

Some of my favorite summer activities are camping and bonfires. This is a super cute gift idea that's perfect for summer!

S'mores in a Jar 


You know it's almost summer when I switch from Chai Tea Lattes at Starbucks to Passion Tea Lemonades! Now I can make them on my own! :) Thanks Vicki!

I love outdoor decorating! With my new home, I have a cute little side porch that I spend tons of time on when the weather is nice.

These little fountains can get $$$. Cheryl shows us an easy way to make our own! This would be perfect for a relaxing evening on my porch!

Finally, I am obsessed with succulents! Actually I love plants and gardening in general, but there's just something about these little guys that I love!
