Summer Essentials Giveaway |

Summertime to me means a lot of evening concerts and picnics in the park, and while I was shopping I found so many cute things that fell right into that theme that this giveaway pretty much put itself together.

The stuff in my basket aka cooler isn’t stuff that I’ve been asked to promote or paid to share. I just liked it all (especially some of my favorite Utah providers) and thought you’d like it too. And I really, really want to say thank you for visiting FoodieCrush, for checking out my recipes and linking through to the recipes of the food bloggers I feature.

So hey, thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll take a minute to enter to win.
