I absolutely LOVE the summer. I love the extra hours of light, how much we get to see everyone we know since there is an event or party every time you turn around, I love all the outdoor activities I can get myself into, and the list goes on and on. However, I don’t know about you guys, but by August, I start to get a little tired. In Buffalo so much of the year is cold and dreary, ok let’s be honest we can actually have snow on the ground for nearly 4 or 5 months straight, so by the time summer comes we are all craving some time out, we are longing to sit on patios, float in pools, sail on boats, picnic, hike, you name it.
With the extreme heat this summer coupled with the very busy schedule of cramming it all in, this week I hit a wall where I feel a bit overwhelmed and I needed to slow it down a bit. I tried to not make too many plans during this week since we had/have a handful of very jam packed busy weekends. We have had a insane number of weddings, showers, birthday parties, picnics, etc and it seems that August is shaping up to be the busiest of them all. Though with all of that being said, I have really been enjoying every minute of it and with our pending move across the country (whenever we sell the house) I am cherishing each moment and every celebration. Soon those will all be so far away and I know I will be missing it all greatly. Here is a little glimpse of the last two magical, fun filled weeks.
A print I picked while at the WNYBAC. I have been in love with this print for some time now. It is a reproduction of a WWI era print produced by the US Department of Agriculture. I love how every word of it still rings true today. I cannot wait to hang this in our new place.
Kelly from the Spunky Coconut so nicely sent me a copy of her new cook book and I am obsessed. Just made a batch of chocolate ice cream inspired by her’s last night. AMAZING! You need this cookbook.
