I had no plans for disappearing from social media this summer, but truth is the best way for me to enjoy this season is actually trowing all the plans up in the air and live one day at a time. I’m postponing all my scheduled posts in September and clearing space in my head for new ideas and dreams. I’m making time for reading, going on short walks along the river, watching the kids play outdoor and  nothing else, while waiting for the holidays to begin.

How are your summer days going?

May roundup

May has gone by so quickly. It has been a full month, packed with end of the school year activities, school trips, birthday parties, outdoor activities, after dinner walks, a full moon and fireworks. I almost haven’t had time to stop and notice or take picture, just enjoyed the moments. 

April roundup

This month was full of surprises, mostly good, some unexpected.

 We enjoyed the longer days, the afternoon light and our flowering pots.

 She quarantined over the Easter holidays.

 The kids enrolled and had fun in a chess tournament.

We made a trip to beach.

I started a new painting.

 We went for after dinner rides while visiting the grandparents.

 We had endless afternoons after school.

And ended the month with my birthday and beautiful presents.

We are slowly moving into autumn, savouring these last warm days, spending time outdoor as much as we can, changing our weekly menu to add more soups and comfort food, enrolling into after school activities and attending birthday parties. It’s almost time to bring out jumpers and blankets, time for afternoon teas and apple cakes, time for slowing down after a fast going summer and a hectic back to school. I’m starting to like this season, even if it means shorter days and cool mornings.
What are your plans for this month? Hope something exciting!
