Happy JUNE! There’s always a special excitement around summer… I think that’s ingrained in us since childhood. 🤩☀️

But being a parent also brings strong feelings of wanting to create some of this *summer magic* for our loved ones. 💛

Towards the end of the school year, I always start dreaming of things like sunny pool days, outdoor movie nights, roasting marshmallows for s’mores, and so many other fun-filled moments that I hope my family gets to experience. (And I know I’m not alone in this!)

Fortunately, these moments don’t have to be tied to a special occasion or fancy vacation… there’s so much we can do to make any ol’ day of the week something special. 🎉

For example, a Backyard Stargazing Party – as shown here – or a creative Slumber Party (more on this soon 😉). These are moments that can be created anytime with your family or a small handful of friends, neighbors, etc. Of course, you can always expand them to work for a larger crew, too.

P.S. The Moon & Stars Charcuterie board idea is probably my favorite… it’s sweet and savory AND easier than you’d think!

If you haven’t tried your hand at a themed grazing board yet, this is a great place to start. I might have to revisit this idea in the fall and modify it slightly for Halloween. 😉🪄🌙
