Encouraging Hearts and Home: The Heat Goes On

Our heat wave is continuing and while we have had a cooler day here or there our temps are pretty consistently staying in the 90's with plenty of sunshine.  Thank goodness for things like lakes, pools, and air conditioning!  When the weather is like this I have little desire to do anything but relax, read, and enjoy.

And Now, for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!

Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

Linking Up With: Thinking Out Loud, 


  1. Love the creativity but so sad for everyone

    1. I can only assume you are referring to the Not Back to School feature but I assure you that we, as homeschoolers, celebrate Not Back to School each year. Usually that first week when all the public school kids are back in school we take trips to the beach or museums or parks to celebrate the fact we don't have to return to school.

  2. Thanks so much for hosting each week!!
    Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  3. High temps here, too. The heat index is horrible. I was completely soaked after my yard work was completed yesterday. I'm sharing my newest project, #31 Thrifty Party Decor. Happy Thursday!

    1. I can't even begin to tackle yard work; though it's all brown and dead anyway so there isn't much to do! Lol.

  4. Yes, I have had the ac on all summer! Thanks for hosting the fun and enjoy the rest of the week and weekend.

    1. Not loving the electric bill but so thankful for the AC!

  5. My cousin did a similar thing for her wedding. It was a lot of fun. The chocolate whoopie pies look amazing.

    1. It sounds fun! I wish we had thought of something like that.

  6. ...those picture frames have become popular, in the Adirondack Mountains last week I took a picture of my wife through one.

  7. You're welcome! Those pies look absolutely amazing!!

  8. Happy Friday!

    Thank you for featuring our posts on "The Wedding Lull - How to entertain your guests."

    We try to get as much ideas out to brides-to-be to help with their planning process and mot have to stress.

    Thanks for hosting!
