In Between And Enjoying Both


This morning found myself snuggled under this beautiful autumn blanket sipping my coffee. I know. I know. It is still August. Madison bought it for me when she was shopping a few weeks ago, and I found it much too pretty and soft to pack away. However, since it is indeed still August, and I actually do enjoy one type of exercise, I spend a bit of time this afternoon with Flynn doing this...


Yes. That would be me. Make up free, hot mess hair, but happy as can be swimming in the lake with my five-pound pup and my eleven-year-old Flynn. Am I itching to dig out my pumpkin spice candle? You bet! But I think I will wait just a bit longer. Cozy outside on the deck at night is cozy just the same.

Have a cozy Wednesday, my friends.
Hotdogs on the grill tonight around here.
How about you?

  2. How wonderfully happy you look, my friend! Today would be great to jump in your lovely lake with your darling doggie and your sweet daughter. I'm stealing away in the a/c dreaming of Autumn while the heat and humidity rises outside. What a nice gift from your daughter.

  14. Looks like it was a win-win baseball day. And I think that pic of you in the lake is my favorite of you ever! You look so adorable and so happy. And we're definitely soul sisters in the autumn dept. I'm itching to get out all my goodies too! I bought one candle and ordered some decorations on QVC but not displaying.....yet 😉
