I’m not sure why… but my summer baking is messier than other seasons.
It might be the teenage son who pops in and out. It might be the distractions.
It might be that I bake a lot in the summer, people are filtering through the house more regularly. And they are always hungry.
If you’re like me and you find yourself with all kinds of projects in the summer, an apron is an essential tool.
I wrote an article a while ago on my personal blog about aprons. I said,

I didn’t own an apron then. Weirdly.
I do now. In fact, I kind of like to collect them.
If you’re like me and your summer kitchen can be crazy at times, buy yourself an apron — or if you like to sew… make one. You’ll be glad you did!

Aprons tell stories. What will yours tell? Here’s to a summer filled with aprons.
And a side note… they make excellent bridal, shower, wedding, birthday gifts.
