It's been a couple months since we've written anything on here -June and July have flown by so quickly (as time is prone to do). Cecelia had a very cute healthy baby boy in the middle of June and I taught full-time for a few weeks and was reminded (strongly) of why I love to work at home. July has zipped along as well -today I realized that August starts on Monday. Yikes! My July has passed in a haze of long hot afternoons on the front yard with my feet in the baby pool while Julie terrorizes our dog with buckets of water. I've been pulling weeds, hanging laundry, splashing in puddles, discovering new and delicious thing to cook in my slow cooker and BBQ, bringing iced coffees out to my husband while he cuts and bales hay endlessly -all the lovely summery things I dream about throughout the winter.
It's been refreshing to take a bit of a break from New Leaf, but I'm ready to start making notebooks and other goodies once again. My New Leaf hiatus has not been without making, however! I've been making all sorts of fun things for my daughter, building up my maternity wardrobe (yep -I'm due on Christmas Eve!), and exploring the world of summer cooking. I'm looking forward to sharing more about each of these things in the next few weeks.
