First Day of Summer – Best of the Weekend 6/21/19

Happy First Day of Summer and welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  As always, we are so happy you could join us!

Lately, we’ve had some summer temperatures but not enough summer sunshine!   Hopefully, now that summer has officially arrived, the weather will behave a little more appropriately!

In the meantime, let’s get started with our Best of the Weekend 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…



If you don’t already follow our blogs, we would love for you to follow us in some way:

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.



In honor of the first day of summer, here is a summer table setting to inspire you!
