Top 10 Recipes and DIY Projects for August 2021

Hi friends!

I can’t believe that August is ending and we are about to enter September…in my world, fall begins the day after Labor Day, and is officially my favorite time of year. Before getting too excited for the next “season” to come, I love looking back and seeing where we were, what we accomplished and what we have to work on.

Unfortunately, we still have a zillion house projects to work on – but I’m confident that before fall really settles in, we are going to have several of them done (or else, I’m sending out an S.O.S. because I’m just done!!! lol). I also love to look back on what you all found interesting in the past month.

While I’m absolutely not an analytical person (well, for the boring stuff that is), I actually took the time to look back over which blog posts were all of your favorites in August. So…without further ado, here they are! I’m actually super shocked by # 10, 2, and 1!! These are totally new to the list of reader’s favorites, and that makes me so happy!! Tell me in the comments, which one of these projects/recipes was your favorite!
