August is fast becoming one of my favorite months.
I almost feel like I am betraying my younger self when I say this, but – I think the fall is absolutely my favorite season.
It used to be summer, what with being a student and those being the blissful free-from-school months, the camp and pool and afternoon-drive months.
But, now that summer no longer has that advantage over me (though it does bring garden season — woop woop!), I whole-heartedly prefer the autumn.
Summer isn’t gone yet and I’m in no rush for it to make an exit – but August brings schedule and structure and anticipation of autumn – which is almost better than the thing itself. It’s birthday month for several beloved people…and one little guy that I am partial to is celebrating his very first birthday!
So here’s to August! And wringing every last and best ounce of joy out of summer…<3
a few interesting links & other fun things for your enjoyment:

Who isn’t a sucker for adorable bows & headbands on little girls? I am eyeing a few from this shop for Kaya. Adorable, right?!
Ever made kombucha? Local friends, hit me up for a scoby to get you started! Free to a good home. 😉 My most recent batch (Jasmine Green tea with MO plums!) is in its 2nd ferment and I can’t wait to try it!
