Your fingers are caked in Old Bay — they’ll smell for a good day — and so there’s no chance you’ll reach for your phone to check something or idle over instagram. Instead, conversation ebbs and flows. A cicada’s buzz crescendoes, then abruptly disappears. Mosquitos nip at the ankles and elbows and beads of condensation drip down the side of your beer. It is hot and humid and the air swells thick around you — but you don’t much...

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I am in love with the jewelry Nicola Bathie makes. I have several pairs and just added these stunning blue cameo earrings to my collection. Happy Easter to me! They are insane! I could not decide on which pair I wanted for about a week — I literally would stare at multiple different tabs in my browser debating.

Summer may be winding down, but it’s never too late for another satisfying grilling recipe! This no-fuss steak recipe makes a perfect weeknight dinner, and the jalapeno salsa comes together while the steak is off the grill and resting. Don’t have a grill?
