July | 2015

"Anne was sitting at her open window, for the time forgetful of the...cares of the world, as she drank in the beauty of the summer dusk, sweet-scented with flower-breaths from the garden below and sibilant and rustling from the stir of poplars. The eastern sky above the forest was flushed faintly pink from the reflection of the west, and Anne was wondering dreamily if the spirit of colour looked like that..."
-L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

We continue to revel in our littles and their discovery of the world around us. Traditions, garden gems, adventures, friendships...we have certainly been enjoying our summer.

Here's a peak into our July...

date night!
Aunt Lynnie watched the kiddos so JD and I could sneak off for JD's work party. The theme? Flapper. Blinging earrings and pearl strands were as close as I could get. (Side note: I really want to get this man some suspenders. Why on Earth are suspenders so attractive? Urkel was definitely onto something there...)

What a great way to end the month. Could it possibly be August already??? Next year we'll be starting pre-school! But for now, we'll just keep playing...
