the last bit

Summer is winding down for us, in the achingly beautiful way it happens here in the Pacific Northwest. The light changes a bit every day; the mornings and evenings are crisp, the afternoons warm to hot. And I'm sensing a restlessness in the boys. School starts in just over a week, so we've begun setting an alarm and transitioning into school mode. This week we'll be squeezing in those last few activities we'd like to do before summer is over.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend was much as we did. We ended ours with a meal at one of our favorite restaurants, Delancey.

Happy Monday! xo

Do you actually set an alarm to get everyone used to new hours? I am amazed and impressed!
I hope the boys are looking forward to the new school year!

I watched the light the other day, trying to figure out what it is that has changed...

I love that top photo with the waffles. You're right, the light does change a bit every day.

So nice to run into you last night! I loved meeting the great guys in your life.

Your last bit looks so good, a nice way to say goodbye to summer.

happy Monday, Lecia. What a lovely way to wind down towards school. It is in full swing here and as I got out the door this morning, it felt odd, with Isabella in school uniform this year, grabbing a sweater for her. So very autumn.

yum, yum, the pie looks delicious.

the mornings are starting to become cooler, here too! and the light is more watery, kind of wintery.

Thanks for this little bite of home. September, Seattle, as good as it gets.
