Daylight Savings Time: *stabs me in the leg*

— Ian Dukes

It’s been a week since we turned back the clocks and 5 p.m. still seems like midnight.

I hope you’ve got some time this weekend to enjoy some of summer’s simple pleasures, whether that’s a bike ride along your favourite path, reading a great book under a shady tree or shucking fresh corn on the cob and feasting al fresco. ๐Ÿคค All hygge goodness! The fellas have gone for a walk (after much moaning and groaning on my 12-year-old’s part — why does everything have to be a fight? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ) and my daughter’s at camp for a few more days so I’m going to enjoy the quiet and my tea and catch you up. Hygge in a Box debuted a gorgeous new look with its Summer Edition, along with all kinds of wonderful products and ideas for making the most of the season. I think you’ll love it.
