Reminiscing About Unforgettable Vacations
Ah, the sweet memories of our recent vacation still make me smile. Take a sneak peek into some of the highlights:
Unplugging from the daily grind and immersing ourselves in pure bliss – oh, how we miss those carefree days! Don’t worry, though, a detailed vacation post is in the works just for you. Stay tuned!
Embracing the Magic of Fall
Let’s talk about something truly special – the arrival of fall! Can you feel the crispness in the air? It’s a season bursting with delights. Here’s why I’m head over heels for autumn:
Football season is about to kick off, and the changing weather brings such cozy vibes. Trust me, there’s no need to argue – fall is simply the best. Plus, the incredible photo opportunities during this time of year can’t be beaten!
Getting Back into the Swing of Things
After a rejuvenating 10-day vacation, we’re gradually readjusting to our routine. Let me tell you, my friend, it’s no easy feat!
No Dread in Sight
Fortunately, there isn’t much to dread at the moment. Life is sailing smoothly, and I’m grateful for every peaceful moment.
Unleashing My Creativity
I’ve got an exciting project on my hands – sewing an MSU dress for my daughter. With the first game just around the corner, she needs something festive to wear. Wish me luck!
Embracing the Beauty of Fall
Can we pause for a moment to appreciate the breathtaking beauty of autumn? I absolutely adore this season. We’ve already visited one cider mill, and I have my sights set on another tomorrow. The weather, the football games, and, of course, the scrumptious stews and soups – it’s all pure bliss!
Look at this adorable throwback photo that popped up on my Facebook feed. Can you believe how tiny she was? Oh, and yes, we’re still rocking the eye patch (hurray for sarcasm)!
Taking a Break with Books and TV
During our vacation, I dove into the world of books and indulged in some binge-watching. Here’s what’s been keeping me entertained:
I devoured four books, including “The Lucky Ones” (not my cup of tea), “Burn” (a definite winner), and an Alex Cross novel (I can’t recall which one). Having someone else watch the kids allowed me to immerse myself in captivating stories. Plus, the breathtaking view enhanced the entire experience!
As for TV, I’m slightly behind on my favorite shows – “AGT,” “Zoo,” and “Suits” have my full attention.
Tuning In to the Perfect Tunes
Currently, I’m hooked on Bon Iver Radio on Pandora. However, I’m in need of some fresh tunes. What are your go-to stations? Also, I’m considering diving into the world of podcasts. Do any of you multitask by listening to podcasts while blogging? I’m curious to know if they enhance productivity.
Embracing Comfortable Fashion
When it comes to clothing, I’ve been living in capris and my favorite collection of t-shirts and tank tops. This outfit, captured Up North, has become my go-to choice:
With limited options this summer, I’m eagerly awaiting fall to challenge myself with a different outfit every day. I successfully pulled it off during winter, so why not continue the tradition?
Exciting Weekend Plans
This weekend promises plenty of excitement. First up, a fantasy football draft party (time to strategize my picks!). Then, I’ll be cheering on the Spartans and savoring the smoky goodness of beef tenderloin. It’s shaping up to be an unforgettable weekend, my friends!
Thrilled for the Month Ahead
You guessed it – I’m still swooning over the upcoming fall season. Plus, Annabelle is about to embark on her preschool journey. Such a memorable milestone! By the way, in case you missed it, I recently shared a DIY chalkboard project that could inspire your creative side:
