last weekend + new beginnings...




I think it's safe to say most people can't believe how fast September crept up. I know I can't! Where did our summer season (well kind of...) go? We're finally having the most gorgeous weather though, right in time for Labour Day weekend... really the last weekend of summer before all those new beginnings... school starting, the fall season, new wardrobe, new goals... Maybe because I always get that little "new school year" feeling around this time, it somehow seems like the best time to set up new goals and adventures. I hope to finally get outdoors and enjoy the early, warmer side of fall... apple picking, hay rides, visits to orchard farms and drinking hot apple cider. I also hope to get a better routine going in my daily life, more sleep and better eats! Don't we all say that? I think it affects everything else though...

Well, I hope you have a great weekend! I'm relaxing tomorrow, and then off to a friend's cottage on Sunday to soak up some sun and hopefully eat a fire roasted hotdog or two (it's really the only acceptable way to eat them, lol)... thanks for stopping by everyone!

...can't leave without a few links from this week...

it's a *new* month...

Enjoy your weekend at the cottage, it sounds lovely! Cheers to new beginnings! I also feel that way too with "back to school" time, even though I'm no longer in school :) xoxo Crystal

I too love fall, and I too dread what comes after fall! Anyhow, have a good weekend! Just wish I could spend my weekend at the beach like the woman in the third picture.

I hope you have a fun-filled weekend and day at the cottage!

Now that I'm out of school, I look forward to Fall -- cozy sweaters, new leather shoes, handmade knitted accessories by my Grandma, pumpkin pie, leaves changing colors, and of course -- delicious and warm drinks from Starbucks :)

{thank you also for the link love!}

That's how I always describe fall too - as a back to school feeling that always seems so exciting and full of possibilities. I think that's why it's my favorite time of year. have a great weekend!

Just found your blog from "walking around" and I love it!

Do you know where that sweater in the last picture is from? Where could I get that one or one similar to it?

Thanks!
