Fall is right around the corner, but I'm still soaking in these days of Summer as much as I can.
The season has been filled to the brim and the days have gone by all too quickly. There was so much we set out to accomplish... not everything was completed, but we enjoyed seeing progress at our little place. I remind myself all the time, one thing at a time... one day at a time.
It seems like just yesterday I was admiring the daffodils and my baby girl was just starting to sit up on her own. Now she's walking and into everything... I can barely keep up!
I remind myself of how important it is to count my blessings today. A project can be for tomorrow, but today I have to keep my priorities where they should be.
Our garden has brought us all so much joy this year. There are so many lessons in a garden. We've also been enjoying fresh farm eggs this week from our neighbor and we all can't wait to start preparing for getting some chickens of our own. I caught this sweet picture of Jillian when she didn't see me... waiting on the porch for the neighbor boy to bring the eggs. It was hard to describe what I felt as I watched her from inside sit out there and talk to an imaginary friend. She's growing up and I hardly know where the time has gone.
So often I'm reminded to enjoy these days as they will be gone in a blink of an eye.
So while I do feel excitement at the thought of cooler days, colorful leaves, and pumpkins...
I'm still relishing these sweet days of Summer.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
