Geocaching, weekend day trips, family hikes, the start of preschool, and not a drop of rain in sight. Thumbs up, September.

    I can feel summer quickly disappearing on the east coast too.

    I can’t believe how grown up Dylan looks! I hope they’re both enjoying their new schools.

    I agree. Dylan looks really grown up in these pictures. Enjoy the last days of summer.

    What sweet pictures! It’s time to “suck the nectar” these last few weeks before fall sets in!

    So, did you geocache the location of those legs? :)

    Hey – in that last pic, do I see new flooring on the sunroom floor? I think it’s time for another home remodel photo update! :)

    Haaa, Jennifer, that is bizarre — I was just in the middle of doing that!

    I used to love geocaching in college- I can’t wait until my boys are old enough to enjoy it!

Loss, love, and the beauty of human connections. space hypnotistslovestory The Hypnotist's Love Story, by Liane Moriarty I didn't love the book she's best known for, The Husband's Secret, but I really liked this one and What Alice Forgot. Her writing style reminds me of a twistier, more suspenseful Elizabeth Berg. space rosieproject The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion Funny and quirky and endearing and best of all, it's the sort of book you just can't put down. space marylou Mary-lou Manizer Highlight/Shimmer Powder This is basically a shimmery (not glittery!) powder that adds a really nice luminescent highlighting glow. I sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, on top of blush, and blend. space pb2 PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter MIRACLE FOOD. It's powdered peanut butter you mix with water (or add to a smoothie, or...) and it has a fraction of the fat and calories of regular peanut butter. Plus: delicious. space [More things I like...]
