I first of all, want to come back to blogging! Summer is a little like entering the Fairy Realm… I’m just not sure what happened to that time. We host many visitors, travel to Nova Scotia numerous times, we garden and garden and eat so much good food. The days are split between harvesting, taking Henry for beach walks or just.. I don’t even know! I did sleep near a fairy fort in Ireland so…
But now, finally, that cool air is forcing me inside with a more productive mindset. I have a new study/studio (whatever you want to call it) and I have never felt more inspired by a small room before (I will do a post on the room, or something of that nature, I would love to share it with you!). And so, here I am reflecting on the summer.
Our gardens have been bountiful, the weather has been very kind with both sun and rain, heat and cooler days. The bugs have been atrocious but in turn, the butterflies and bees have been so numerous you can hear the buzz or clicking of their wings as you walk through the fields. There have been trips to the beach, walks in the woods, bonfires, fresh garden meals, preserving and jam making, knitting (but not as much), long bike rides and old friends. All in all, it has been a very pleasant season.
And yet… I can not seem to remember very much of it! I also did not take very many photographs at all. So, I wanted to share just a couple, just to get back into the swing of things.
I do hope you enjoyed your summer, where ever you found yourself! What did you get up to? Does anyone else feel like it passes like a dream?
** I’m sorry this is such a short post! I do wish I had been actively blogging this summer, documenting hikes or anything really! I think it’s safe to say that stepping into a sun drenched (although.. my photographs make it seem like we had a very cloudy summer – I am just drawn to taking photographs when the sun isn’t beaming down on us) fairy realm is pretty accurate ; ). I really like to take my time with plants, just to be with them, observe them, I spent much of my time in this manner, leaving my phone turned off or hidden away somewhere.
Lastly, I am sorry this blog is more like a visual diary than what I see most blogs being – instructional sites. I simply enjoy documenting the little things in life and don’t really see myself as being an authority on anything on this planet for giving people instruction. Sometimes, I wonder if it’s even still relevant to have a blog simply documenting your life… but alas, I do enjoy it (regardless of the hiatus) and really love the conversations and friendships that I’ve made on here. So Blessings all and I hope you’ve been well!
A song for you, that I sometimes play on repeat (like right now)
PS I still fully plan to write and share about Ireland, it’s only my second home <3
