Tailgating with a summer dessert
We recently took this Summer Fruit Cobbler to a tailgating area in our Sprinter van, and celebrated our son’s birthday with friends. It’s easy to sit outside and socially distance, and make celebrations happen!
Today, the first of the month, instead of thinking about what goals you want to accomplish this summer, how about reflecting back on May and seeing which goals really stuck?
A few come to mind for me, as we hunkered down during an unusual, unsettling time. Yesterday our world came together in a Civil Rights way that I’ve never witnessed in all my years. A glimmer of hope for all of us, as we listen and learn–with love in our hearts for one another–this is where change starts!
In our home this past month, we’ve finished a few more house projects, and we’re branching out to having people over again. This makes my heart very happy!
I would say that we all have gotten very comfortable being uncomfortable. With so much unknown around us, we’ve learned to adapt and put our heads down, to figure things out in our own little worlds. Growth and development rarely occur when everything is perfect. I’ve learned more discipline these past few months–have you? I can say I’ve grown as a person.
I also think about the people in our lives. Paul and I are very intentional with friendships. It’s also important to make friends with people who have discipline! The main people in your life who are focused and disciplined rub off on you, right?
Save this dessert recipe for the weekend, and who will you invite over?
We have so much to be thankful for!

How to make a summer fruit cobbler
All you need is fresh summer fruit! Think any kind of berries, cherries, rhubarbs, and even apricots (yum).
Then the usual baking ingredients (flour, sugar, etc:) But LESS sugar than you think!
Of course butter makes everything better.
