  1. Beautiful summer thoughts and images.
    Winter on my mind here and parenting and soccer. At the same time I am thinking about big changes in energy as winter draws us close, and brings us together for earlier nights and so much less activity.
    Time to think about how to use this time more productively. Lovely as always to read about what you are up to Michelle.

    1. oh, ness, i love to hear from you in your corner of the world…love connecting in this way.
      the changes in energy that come with the change in seasons is so fascinating, i think. wishing you and yours so much comfort and coziness in your winter months.

  2. Now I think I need pie and with the crust you linked to, oh my goodness Michelle.
    There has been soccer in my world too, will be kind of sad when it’s over.
    I agree with you and Karen, sometimes parenting is just down right hard, but I would never trade it.
    I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend.

    1. i do love me some pie, tracey!
      and the soccer…it’s been so fun to follow along, hasn’t it?
      the parenting…never ever trade!
      have a lovely weekend, my dear!

  3. parenting is never easy but it’s so rewarding. I am noticing how quickly summer is flying by and in six weeks both kids will be relocating to new to them and to me places. Oh the changes they face and in turn I face!

    1. i totally agree on the parenting thing, karen. even with the rough days, i would never trade it.
      and your kids…grown babes now, setting off for new adventures…and you too, with the new adventures. love to you, mama. xo
