Welcome, September.

Friends, our ladies are officially laying! What a lovely way to begin one of my favorite months.

Other things making this first day of September especially happy: "Merino Cool" on my nails, putting away flip flops + wearing my favorite black flats, and toddlers that think coloring and cutting paper is the coolest thing to do. Ever.

What's making you over the moon happy today?


  1. Darn it I was going to say You as well! No but really I just spent some time catching up on your blog because that's what I do now as a non-blogger...wait until I have weeks of blogs to catch up on, and you are just so so inspiring as a hip mother, accomplishing home + kids + life in a beautiful and balanced way. I felt so uplifted after reading/looking at your recent posts + it made me want to come visit!

  2. Making me happy:

    * wearing jeans
    * the thought of boot weather
    * the crisp chill in the air at 5:30am when we walk
    * the fact that i've made a real dinner every night this week.
    (that same thing can't be said for summertime meals around here ;)

  3. The cooler weather the last few days in the mornings has been a dream! I love to be out and about in it. Also...I'm finally ready to see Fall decor in the stores now without feeling like it's being pushed on me too soon. I love it! Fall is my favorite!

  4. This picture and post are making me happy today! Can't wait to read about what you've been up to :)

  5. -air conditioning is off
    -having to put another blanket on my bed at night
    -the thought of putting out my fall decor next week makes me happy
    -wearing jeans for the first time in what feels like FOREVER!!!

  6. There is nothing quite like eggs from your very own chickens! We have two contraband hens in our backyard and have more eggs than we know what to do with!

    On another note, I don't know if you read The Pioneer Woman, but she has a tutorial up today for perfect pies. I saw it and thought of you! Here's the link: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/09/pams-pie-tutorial/
