Summer crostini on Oh the Lovely Things

summer crostini // a thousand threads
So the fireflies are here, and that means my favorite part of summer has officially arrived.

I grew up without fireflies – which really shouldn’t even be allowed – and for a long time, I thought they fit in the same category as fairies and unicorns. I can still hardly believe that those twinkling lights are real. So while I’d gladly give the rest of the big bugs the boot, the total magic of fireflies makes up for any shortcomings I might occasionally find here on the east coast. (Not that I’m biased.)

There is truly nothing more magical than sitting outside on a warm summer night, watching their little lights burn.

Except maybe eating egg salad on a crunchy, savory crostini while you enjoy that same warm summer night with some friends (Like how I did that there? Shameless…).

If that sounds as good to you as it does to me, head over to Oh the Lovely Things today. I’m sharing a delicious summer crostini while Clemence in away in Fiji. (Fireflies are great and all, but Fiji? Jealous much?)

P.S. Be sure to check back later this week for a fun announcement Melissa and I have been teasing over on Instagram for a while!

    Oh my, these look gorgeous! I also grew up without fireflies and am still tickled pink whenever I see them here in Michigan šŸ™‚

    OMG! I had no idea fireflies were not an ‘all over’ thing! I have been appreciating them less than I should have!

    You just reminded me how terribly I miss fireflies! Oh, we just need to move back East already!

    I’m always a bit surprised when I spot fireflies here in Brooklyn šŸ™‚ These crostini look SO good – I love a good egg salad!
