What a month it’s been. Just like that, July flew by and it wasn’t until today that I realized we didn’t share our favorites for the month of June. We’re headed even faster towards September, which for those of you who still are somewhat school-oriented or work in the education field, you know the end of August and the beginning of September is always pretty busy.
Not to mention, if you’re following us on Instagram, you’re aware we took a little break in action because of how heavy-hearted I was feeling with everything going on in our world among other things. I appreciate my husband so much as he’s been nothing, but supportive, encouraging, and always looking out for my best interest. With that said, we’ve been spending this month – especially the end of it, taking some time away from social media, journaling, praying, reading scripture, and spending time together.
This brings us to some things we’ve enjoyed this month in this month’s Fresh Pressed Edit!
- This Korean drama, we’ve been watching recently on Netflix called Reply 1988.
- Wanna know how to speak like a Philadelphian? This video and others have piqued my interest, recently since we both love learning accents.
- Speaking of accents, this video teaching you how to do a Boston accent was interesting to watch.
- We recently got Bodhi’s coffee again after a while of not having it. It’s one of my favorite places in Philly to grab a cup of coffee.
- The short-rib sandwich from Maiale’s in one that I would recommend you try immediately if you are ever in the Wilmington, Delaware area. Grab one to go and you won’t regret it.
- Going on long walks and drives with my wife has been very fun. It’s some we started doing to give us something to look forward to each weekend.
- We had rotisserie chicken recently for dinner that I would like to add to this list. My wife is currently making ‘tsk ‘tsk sounds at me for that, haha.
- My wife and I recently started using Audible and so far we like it as much as we like listening to podcasts.
- Nutella coffees have been something we have enjoyed a lot this month.
- I have always loved the Philly skyline, but I have grown to appreciate it, even more.
- This bag that I have been highly debating getting as a camera bag. I don’t need it, but the one I purchased is quite bulky, something I don’t need when I’m just walking around taking photographs of nature. It’s also just really cute as an everyday summer bag with the striped lining in it.
- Carly got engaged! I’ve been following Carly The Prepster for quite a few years and she recently shared on Instagram in June that she got engaged last month.
- I probably already shared this, but sharing again because this is precisely what I would love our living room to look like one day. It is so layered and so cozy.
- Caitlin recently changed her blog’s layout and I love it! I loved it before, but I love it even more now as the space feels so cheerful and is so on-brand for the joy I get when I see her content!
- This Aerogarden review because I have seriously considering growing our own vegetables, but we don’t currently have the outdoor space to do so without little creatures trying to get at it. This thing is something I can get with, though.
- This laundry room, which is goals!
- Since Delaware reopened with some restrictions, we got to travel state lines again to visit of our favorite coffee shops, BrewHaha. While we’re not comfortable dining outdoors yet, we have enjoyed heading to Delaware, grabbing our favorite brews, and going on drives or quick walks, though!
- The Yelp App has been something we’ve been using a lot recently to find everything from what coffee shops are open to using it to find nice walkable trails and small towns to explore while safely distancing.
- My husband already mentioned this, but Audible has been a game-changer for me this past month. I admit I wasn’t much of an Audible person before because I love the feeling of holding a book in my hand, but I’ve always respected the accessibility of it. Even as an educator, I’d often supplement audio versions of books for students who benefited most from listening to them. Now that we’ve downloaded the app, it makes enjoying books SO much easier because I can listen while I’m cooking or while we drive or before bed. We may end up keeping it.
