You’re invited, friend. The HELLO SUMMER email series is starting in ten days! To jump right to the signup, just scroll to the bottom of this post.
If you’ve been watching my Instagram at all in the last few days, you’ll notice I’m knee-deep in paradise—that is: peony season. These early summer blooms ring in the season for me like nothing else can. For just two weeks out of the year, I get to bask in the new season by placing pink, fluffy blooms in bouquets large and small in every room in my house. I get to bury my nose in their infinite petals and smell that intoxicating scent. I get to watch as the buds open and spread to reveal more and more and more petals, a big ball of fluffy, transient beauty.
PSSST…if you love peonies as much as I do (is that even possible?), check out my blog post about growing them and making peony bouquets last as long as possible.
Peony season is like the ceremonial entrance gate to summer.
As the petals slowly drop from the tired blooms, you’re sure to find the telltale signs of Summer’s official arrival in their place.
Iced tea glasses sweating in the humid air.
Rain falling on the roof as thunder clashes in the sky.
Gardens growing lush and green, with plants and weeds growing with wild abandon.
That freshly-mowed lawn smell.
Nature delivering its very best flavors to gardens and farmer’s markets everywhere—juicy berries, tasty herbs, bright fresh greens.
Grab your sunscreen and your shades. This is about to get real good.
If you’re ready to grab summer’s glory and soak in it until you’re full up, you’re going to love my new email series!

Here’s what some lovely souls had to say about the last email series:
“It’s a daily inspirational message about the season that is short and sweet. It helped me maximize my enjoyment of the season–it goes by really quickly!”
“This is an excellent series to get you out of a rut of letting one day pass after the next without noticing the beauty of nature. The content not only helps you take the time to recognize the beauty of the season, but also guide you on how to feel accomplished while doing so.”
“It has been a catalyst for me to be more intentional about how I spend my time. It also made me stop and think about which activities give me the most enjoyment. When I’m happier, I’m more productive in all aspects of my life.”
