Things I Heart: Fresh Fruit
This may just be a quirk, but one of my favorites signs of summer is the abundance of delicious fresh fruit! I know– fruit should be a part of a balanced diet 24/7; but who remembers to make fresh berry smoothies or delicious fruit tarts in the dead of winter? There are so many delicious things you can do with fruit in the hot summer months– and if you, like me, just can’t get enough of it, you can wear your food with just as much class as you eat it! Fruit prints should totally be all the rage; who wants to make it the It style with me this summer?
