I was talking to Justin last month about a consistent and cohesive way I can recap what is shared on Instagram each month, and we ultimately came up with The Monthly Edit- an edited recap and best of from the previous month… so today we are welcoming The June Edit!
I feel like so much is covered on Instagram over in stories, and while I do love the instant sharing/communication that platform allows, it isn’t always the easiest to reference when you are looking for something so I wanted to start a new series each month where I can quickly reference and recap posts, products, and life. I hope this is a helpful series that you will look forward to!

Summer Herb Pasta Recipe
I owe you all an official garden blogpost, I know… last month I had a lot of you send in questions and I plan on answering all of them, but for now, here are a few photos I shared on Instagram last month- to our surprise (with a lot of time and love) we really have been enjoying the fruits of our labor with fresh herbs and tomatoes this season. We have enjoyed lots of summer dishes like grilled pizza, fresh spaghetti sauce and a summer herb pasta (second image below) that we have eaten once a week since first making it- we have enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share the simple recipe!
- 1 lb Chicken
- 12 oz Spaghetti (We use Barilla Gluten Free)
- Himalayan Salt & Pepper to taste
- 4 cloves of fresh Garlic
- Fresh Basil
- Fresh Parsley
- Fresh Thyme
- Fresh Rosemary
- Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Butter
- 1 Lemon (Meyer Lemon is best)
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
Sauté chicken breasts (or tenders) in olive oil and butter. Season with Himalayan Pink Salt and Pepper.
Boil the pasta. Reserve 1/2 cup of water to add over into the chicken.
Add fresh garlic, chopped thyme and rosemary to the same pan as the chicken and sauté until garlic is golden and fragrant. Add the reserved pasta water to keep the garlic from burning/overcooking. Mix the garlic and herbs together with the chicken.
Drain your pasta. Add 1/2 juice from the lemon to the pasta along with olive oil, sea salt and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Mix together.
Squeeze the other 1/2 of the lemon over the chicken.
Plate the pasta, add your chicken on top, fresh cherry tomatoes halved, chopped fresh Basil, Parsley, and a pinch of Lemon peel. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with flaky sea salt, and garnish with a lemon slice.
June has been all about outdoor projects like our firepit patio that we are revealing this month, and our garden, but we did also start on our sunroom… I have been sharing over in Instagram stories, but the pavers that were in our sunroom had to be moved out (they were never adhered to the concrete, they were just laying on top, so they weren’t a practical flooring solution as there was no way to properly keep them clean). We ended up using the pavers on our new firepit patio and our garden pathway and I love how both of those areas turned out! BUT that left our sunroom with raw and unfinished concrete which isn’t ideal either, so we have been painting the floor as an easy and budget-friendly solution. I am saving the process to our Sunroom highlight if you want to get caught up, and I will have the Sunroom plans on the blog soon- the goal is to make this room more intentional and function for the whole family… I am really excited about the new direction of this room, and sharing it with you!
That’s all for the June edit! I hope you enjoyed this post! I am looking forward to what July holds and am excited to wrap up and share new project reveals with you!
