Super sweet peaches from Georgia

Wow! It’s almost September, can you believe it!? Life has been very full and busy. And my oldest baby turned 9 today! Anyways, I’ve rounded up some links and loves for August. Some links I enjoyed and want to share, some books we loved and some pictures of some interesting things from our life in August.

I have to say though I’m glad August is winding down. I’m not a fan of the heat and mosquitos that accompany the summer around here. I’m looking forward to some cooler weather, time out in the garden and sitting near a crackling fire.
