Family Summer Birthdays

On my husband’s side of the family, most of us have summer birthdays. So at our yearly summer get-together, we take time to celebrate those birthdays!

Speaking of the cake… my mom-in-law made it for us. It’s from Kraft Recipes and it was super delicious!

My birthday isn’t until the end of July, but I am definitely for celebrating all summer long! πŸ˜‰

iheartmemphisThe “I Heart Memphis” Mural! After a week of sharing so many things we love about Memphis, I can’t think of a better way to end this series of updates about family visiting Memphis. There really is something so wonderful about home. {And as a double dipper: this is my entry for the “There’s No Place Like Home” link up that Nicole from Just Live It is hosting. πŸ™‚ }

We’re so glad that we got to show Memphis off to Christopher’s family. We love our city and it’s fun to share it with family! πŸ™‚

Love Rach
