Just a few snapshots from this past week at home. In between sessions and traveling on the weekends we’ve still got a lot going on around here. We started cloth diapering a few weeks ago now that Fin is a little older and it’s not entirely impossible to fit a pre-fold around his teeny bum. I’m liking these fleece liners we borrowed from a friend and we are currently using those and pre-folds with Thirsties covers because he’s still too small for the pocket diapers we had made for him.
I found this old window box in the garage and attempted my first terrarium with it. Hoping the plants grow a bit more so they start to peek out but I love the rustic, recycled, and natural combo.
My little love. We got some photos back from Finley’s birth and I’m looking forward to sharing more of them with you soon as well as is birth story… for now I’m just marveling how much he has already grown and changed, it’s amazing.
Our living room is still in progress…but the end is in sight. It took us several evenings to remove 3 layers of wall paper, and then over a week for John to get all of the spackling done. As you can see, it was quite the job and these old walls were in pretty bad shape. He finished the sanding last night so the priming and actual painting should be finished over the next few days, yay!
A neighbor stopped by and brought us some gladiolas fresh from her garden… nothing sweeter than that.
Do you see what I see? Yep. Leaves are on the ground already. Fall is just about here, folks.
While I’m a big time summer lover, I do embrace Fall as my favorite seasonal transition. There’s something magic in the way the days start to turn cool and crisp, inviting us to trade our t-shirts for flannels and sweaters and bring out the box of gloves and mittens from the attic. I absolutely love fall produce and I’ve started to incorporate a few local favorites back into our menu including roasted tomato soup, crispy skillet potatoes, and this new recipe- a Fall Quinoa Salad with walnuts and sweet potatoes. I did everything the recipe suggested but actually swapped out the raisins for feta cheese and we enjoyed it with a small side salad and crusty bread last night.
While I absolutely love my job and would book a session every day if I could (ok maybe not every day but I certainly love all the busyness and sessions this time of year brings) this weekend we are taking a break and going on a little retreat. I cannot wait to share meals with good friends, sit around a cozy fire and go for walks in the woods… it’s a fall cabin getaway and I’ll post some pictures of our time next week! Happy friday everyone!
