Beginning of Summer – Best of the Weekend

Happy Memorial Day Weekend – the unofficial beginning of summer!  Even though here in New Jersey the school year doesn’t end until mid-June, we still think of Memorial Day Weekend as the start of summer.  This is the weekend when pools open and everyone heads “down the shore” for the three day weekend.  Luckily, we are finally experiencing some nicer weather here in the northeast.  Hopefully, it will continue through the weekend for all those barbecues and outdoor festivities!

Since it’s Friday, it’s also time for our weekly, Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!

If you have something to share, we invite you to link up your inspiring posts which may include crafts, decor, recipes, DIY and more!

It’s time to inspire us…or get inspired…best of the weekend link party

Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs.  Let’s meet your hosts…

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.

 

TO GET US STARTED, THIS IS WHAT I SHARED ON MY BLOG THIS WEEK:

Since it’s the beginning of summer, we all want to spend more time outdoors.  To celebrate outdoor living, I shared my Rocking Chairs on Porches post this week…
