the perfect long weekend to bid adieu to summer

happy tuesday! hope everyone had a fantastic last weekend of summer. we took full advantage of the extra day off and worked our little butts off on Monday. the year was desperate for clean up so 6 leaf bags later and we checked that off the list. i managed to pack away all of the pillows and outdoor cushions. i am sure the weather may lend itself to a few more weekends outside but type A organization got in the way and felt with my return to work that this was the time to get it done. the sofa slip covers got a good clean and i started pulling the babes summer clothes to be packed away and donated to another family. 

in between our home organization we had so many amazing visits with friends, fireworks for the kids and a marathon movie morning, it was actually one of our best weekends of the summer. today, we shared in the many smiles of the munchkins returning to school and can't wait to hear about our little's first day back. I'm making some updates to the kitchen soon too and can't wait to share that with all of you.
