This is a sponsored post by Rukket Sports. We were given the Haack Golf Net to review, however, all opinions are our own.

You all know that we love our golf! We try to get out on the course at least once a week, in addition to spending an extra hour or two at the practice range. However, getting to the range isn’t always easy. Traffic, other commitments, and unpredictable weather have discouraged us from getting our practice in at one time or another.

So when we were contacted by Rukket Sports to test out their Haack Golf Net, we jumped at the chance! No more driving to the practice range! With this net set up in the backyard, all we have to do is wander outside, golf club in hand!

One of the most difficult things about living abroad, particularly within expat communities is the transiency. When we lived in the Cayman Islands it was much more frequent. With people and friends constantly coming and going, it became a way of life. It’s a little harder though in Barbados, because people usually stay for a few years, sometimes as many as five or six, before moving and starting a new journey. This week I’m saying goodbye to a friend and worse yet, by the end of the summer, I would have said goodbye to seven friends. Very sad to see them all go, but excited for each and every one and the adventures that await.

One day we’ll be the ones packing our bags, but for now and to all my expat friends over the past 10 years that I’ve had the amazing privilege of knowing, cheers to you!

orange blossom fashion + oh, hey girl! link-up

We were at a cocktail party a few weeks ago and several women were wearing orange dresses. Thankfully, no one had the same one on, but, wow!, we’re loving that orange has made its way up the must-wear color ladder. So we’re excited to show off our own orange fashion, which we’re calling orange blossom.

guest post: why you should be using cast iron cookware

guest post: why you should be using cast iron cookware

Today we’re welcoming a special guest, Doug, to the blog! We both have our own cast iron pieces in our kitchens (Bre loves her Dutch oven, and Ree can’t get enough of her skillet), but had no idea the versatility they offer. So Doug, who’s a bit of an expert on the subject, has kindly put together this post full of tips and info all on cast iron. Thanks so much Doug!!!

Doug blogs at The Kitchen Professor, and while his degree is honorary (bestowed upon him by his wife), he has enjoyed cooking his whole life, and especially likes the science of cooking. He is partial to cast iron, barbecuing (especially with a smoker), and loves eating at as many restaurants as he can to try new things.

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you should definitely have at least one piece of cast iron. It is versatile, has health benefits, and, in my house, is an essential piece of cookware.

Summer is in full swing and I’m absolutely loving it! While it’s true that we have summer-like weather year round, there’s still a feeling of relaxation that comes with the months of June, July, and August. The kids are off school, friends are on holiday, and most of the tourists have returned home, leaving the golf courses and beaches empty!
