Hi all! Lazy summer days are drawing to a close here. As usual….I am not wanting it to end quite yet. I have savored this summer so much. No alarm clocks, no real plans, no rushing…it has been so nice. My kids start 8th grade in a couple weeks. Yikes! I am going to take some time and enjoy the last couple days of summer with them. I will also be enjoying time with my best friend and her family who have traveled far to visit us. A great way to end a fabulous summer.

Here are some recent favorite post….in case you missed them. I will be back soon and will be sharing more fun DIY, recipes and crafts. Be clever friends:)
