playing a little catch up

Something about rainy afternoons that always inspires a little creative thinking and more importantly, some time back on the blog. We are clearly in full blown summer mode which only means that things are a tad chaotic but in all the right ways. We escaped for an extended weekend up north last week and had spectacular weather. The kids were in their glory. The girls played so well with their cousins and the adults had a little fun for themselves. Good food, good company and lots of sunshine made for a perfect little escape. 

Post vacation mode, I turned things up around home with some intense cleaning, organizing and even purchased a few new items. A new linen slipcover adorns our sofa and I am so in love. Not only is it pretty but its clean and fresh and no longer has the handprints of a certain 2 year old. 

Pausing on the topic of a two year old- geeze, where has the time gone? My little babe will officially be 2 in just three short weeks. I have nothing planned but know that I must put together a little fete for her. Saving that for next week to stay focused on some of the more pressing items this week. 

How has your summer started?
