The weather hasn’t been spectacular fall weather yet this year, to be honest. But Mother Nature has had it with us, so it’s not that surprising. We’re still trying to do All Of The Fall Things, though, which means basking in apple season. Even when we set out in the morning dressed for fall, and need shorts and tank tops by lunchtime.

Adam was actually in Texas for work on his birthday, but when he got home from that trip we had a weekend picnic at one of our local parks. We actually learned as we were leaving that Hamilton was not supposed to be in that park, but we didn’t see the signs. We’re still learning this whole dog ownership thing, but he had the most amazing afternoon out with us as well.

I haven’t posted since Hannah’s first day of school, it’s just the start of the busy season around here. I haven’t started her Halloween costume yet, and we’re still settling in to the school year. Plus we’ve hired a new sitter, and I’m heading into a lot of holiday deadlines with work.

It’s here! The new school year, with this beautiful little miss. It’s going to be an amazing year. She had a great first week, and the fall weather is really kicking in in earnest. She loves her school, and this is her 3rd year in her class, so she knows the drill. It’s good stuff.

Once again, it’s summer, and I didn’t take many outfit photos last month. At all. But I did grab three days of outfits in Italy, where I turned on my full fancy tourist look.

So, I’m working full time now, and life is a juggle. We have a part-time sitter, I’m not spending every afternoon with H anymore. Which is great for her–she gets to run around with a fun college student who does all the fun things she wants to do. And it’s great for me–I work, I use my brain, I love what I’m doing. But I miss those long afternoons with her, and the projects and activities we’d do together.

We bought Hannah a cedar playhouse from Costco for her birthday back in the spring, but Adam didn’t get a chance to assemble it until a few weeks ago. At first it was too cold to build it, then he broke his toe and couldn’t build it. So, finally, she has her playhouse now in the backyard!

Officially started my new job last month! I’ve been going into the office about once a week, and I love the work. But other than the days when I’ve had to look presentable for work or meetings, it has been tees, shorts, no makeup, whatever shoes I can throw on. This is me every summer. I have such good intentions, and I kind of shlub my way through July and August until September 1st comes, and even if it’s still 90 degrees I officially declare it turtleneck and boot weather.

When the new year rolled around I got my usual urge to reorganize, but this year I really, really reorganized. We replaced the 9-year-old bedroom carpet in my studio with some office carpet that wears well, I completely moved furniture around, and I threw out…quite a lot. I wanted the space to feel more open, and even though I have a LOT of craft supplies…I wanted it to feel as contained as possible.

I should get around to posting this, since it’s almost the middle of July and all. And, it’s been almost a full month since I’ve posted anything. Summer. Life. New job. All The Things.
