Summering At Home: What I Wear…& Lemon Sugar Cookies

Keep choosing happiness daily and happiness will keep choosing you back. -Fawn Weaver

Hello, sweet friends…

Heading out to the nursery

I thought I’d share a few ‘go-to’ summer casual outfits I recently put together as I edited items from closets this past week.

Heading out for an appointment…
Heading out to garden…
Heading out for groceries…
Casual day at home…
Heading out for a walk..

For now these simple casual pieces will work well for me as I look ahead and plan summer activities.


What’s Cooking?

Lemon Sugar Cookies

These lemon sugar cookies are so soft with a scrumptious perfect taste of lemon in each bite. I think once you taste these cookies, you are going to be baking them throughout the summer…I know I will!


2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Zest of 2 large lemons

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add lemon zest, egg, vanilla extract and lemon juice; beat at medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds, scraping down the bowl as needed.

Place the ½ cup sugar for rolling in a shallow bowl. Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball, roll the ball in the sugar, and then place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart

Bake until the cookies are slightly brown around the edges and their center are just set and very lightly colored, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets about 2 minutes; using a wide metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
