August

I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which
 anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, 
but just those that bring simple little pleasures,
following one another softly, 
like pearls slipping off a string.
L. M. Montgomery 


I love August.

  1. I love August, I just don't love the thought that my kiddos will be going back to school in 10 days. It just feels like they should really have another month off.

  4. I can't believe how many schools start in August! It's still summer!! I'm mad we go back August 31st...(although, maybe I won't be by August 30th) :)

  5. Absolutely! Thank you for being an inspiring woman who always sends out little reminders to me of what is most important. As one who is just starting out on this journey of parenthood, I admire you as a mother and as an individual. Happy August!

  7. No, I must say I hate August. Here in Arizona, I think it's one of the hottest months of the summer. And school starts on August 8th. I wish I could run away to somewhere really cold for the whole month of August, then when I come back in September, the heat won't be as bad (but still hot) and my birthday will be upon me! Hehe!

  8. Usually, I love August, but as a teacher who has been home on maternity leave with my first-born since March, it's a little bittersweet this year...
