Minty Watermelon and Feta Arugula Salad

I’m back! And boy what a month it has been. Since I last posted, I’ve spent a week of vacation in Rocky Mountain National Park, we bought our first home, transported our boxes, and today summer officially ended as I returned to work.  From sunrise to sunset I’ve been leaning into these experiences and haven’t […]

(Is it obvious yet that I’m having far too much fun with this?)   My Aunt raved […]
