Summer this year has been mild for us until this last week that is. It is so HOT! Just as the temperature has risen I received my Knit Picks catalog for fall and ((((big smiles))) I love the colors. October is my favorite month and I am feeling much anticipation for fall and all that it offers, but until then...We are enjoying this season and spending a lot of our free time outside. Monkey is learning to surf and I have had such a great time watching her and sitting quietly with my camera.

this moment

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember
I hope to be back soon with some knitting news, until then here's wishing you a wonderful weekend.

pics from

our camping trip to Bass Lake. It was full of flip flops and sunscreen,
as well as...
J bug and me
sitting by the campfire
of course no camping trip is complete without a campfire, smore's and
sing a long
a group sing-a-long
monkey and her silly hat friend
cooking dinner
the girls
We had such a great time soaking in the sunshine! The woods, the lake and the company of friends old and new. We are already looking forward to next year when we get to go and do it again!

cdm 9 yr
The musical handyman and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We have been together for 15 years now. He surprised me and took me to the beach where we stood barefoot nine years ago in front of our family and said our I Do's. To say there has been a lot of life lived between then and now would be hugely understated. With all the ups and downs we have been through I am so thankful for this man.

Be back soon with pics to share from our camping trip. Oh my gosh we had sooo much fun!
Happy Thursday
