Well hello there September! May I just say how much I love you? You ring in the beautiful Fall season with your blustery winds, you turn leaves colorful and you promise that hot summer days are coming to an end. Yes, September, I quite love you!
But let’s look back at August, which feels like a whirl wind of a month!
1 / On a trip up to the White Mountains, Leya had such a blast diving for rocks… and the occasional twig! 2 / I’ve been working on a beautiful gallery wall for the bedroom! Can’t wait to finally finish it up and share a tutorial on how to plan your gallery wall! 3 / August was also the month of prepping fire wood for winter. ‘Cause “Winter is coming!” So glad we had such a helpful team of relatives over during that time!!!
4 / Although we haven’t found much yet, we’ve been putting on our ‘mushroom eyes’ when we go for walks. Chantarelles or Horn of Plenty anyone? YUM! 5 / The latest project – prepping the old main house for a paint job. Adrian has been slaving the entire week, scratching off old paint… 6 / My veggie garden is looking amazing and I’ve finally been able to harvest some first tomatoes!
7 / Earlier in August, Adrian painted the barn and it’s looking gorgeous in its new dark cloak! 8 / Autumn is making a first appearance on our dining room table. 9 / And I haven’t been lazy either. I’ve been painting baseboards, chair rails, window & door trims. I’m almost done (YAY!!!), and it has made the biggest of differences in the kitchen/dining room!
