Summer days [Home] snapshots

*Melty Beads
*A new cold coffee brew system
*Rain, rain and more rain

It's been raining a lot! We actually had two days that the rain came falling down the entire day. It was dark and gloomy out. A few days before, we took a little trip out to Target. We picked up some puzzles and melty beads. -Their dollar aisle is amazing! We actually ended up throwing in a small simple kite. 

At home, we have enjoyed putting together puzzles. Our daughter absolutely loves working on puzzles. Her face lights up and she's so proud when she puts her puzzles together all by herself. Of course we're proud of her too. 

 I also came across some melty beads. Oh what a fun little project to get your hands on. On a rainy evening we worked on our melty beads. It took some time and with the left over beads our daughter will create one of her own. She was such a great helper. After we were all done, we took them and added some magnetic tape on the back and added them to the fridge.   

Recently we bought a new cold brew coffee system. We were out enjoying our time at the Starbucks cafe when my husband noticed it sitting on their shelf. He's a bit of a coffee lover. He enjoys roasting beans, grinding them and what not. I'll sip a cup and enjoy with him. He's actually been drinking decaf since that's what I prefer to drink during pregnancy.  I absolutely love this cold brew system. It's simple and you could also brew teas. 

I enjoy our time at home. On these warm, rainy summer days I cherish these simple moments I spend with my family. Home is where we come together, share our love and make lasting memories. 

I hope you all have had a wonderful week. Enjoy your weekend with your family and cherish the simple moments!
