Nostalgia

I already have a bit of nostalgia for this summer passing. The summer I had two little babies. 


The night before the kids went back to school:



 I considered taking down my pool this week. Then I saw that it's going to be in the nineties for the remainder of the ten day forecast. So up it stays.



 

A little river wander. We took some photos for my dear friend Becky's new endeavor, beautiful handmade changing pads. Her company is called Fawn and Cub. If you have IG you should follow her there: thefawnandcub, for sweet pictures of baby and child and nature and adventure.








And then up to the lake to join friends for the summer's last camping/swimming trip.






Things change so fast. Too fast! I love the passing seasons, but everything is more poignant with a baby.

aw...how does it go so quickly? it is so so bittersweet. its so true, having a babe gives the passing of time a face. i start to feel sad or grasp and then remember that the only thing to do is to dig deeper into the moment, to give my girl as much of my presence as possible. i'm so happy we were a part of your summer, it adds sweetness to my own nostalgia. :)

Heather, you pack so much living into your life, it's so inspiring to me. My head is so silly busy at the moment, I just wrote over at Anne's that I feel like it's untidy in there and that I could do more with my time if i figured out my messes first. Anyhow, even though your summer is coming to a close and the river days are drawing nigh, i know that you will fill your Winter with cosy days and lovely slow nights. x

That picture of Lucy with a little blackberry! Time is flying past so so quickly, she's getting so big! I've loved getting to vicariously enjoy your summer, with all its delights and while I'm sorry we're entering your least favorite season (isn't september the month you used to dislike), I hope the heat is as good as it can be and the following rains refreshing. You look happy and radiant m'dear and your family is like a pool of sunshine upon you. Maybe you need to change the name of this blog ;)
Ahh nice way to wrap up summer! I am dying for some river and lake time. I know I live right by the coast, but I'm a Great Lakes girl and I'm dreaming of some salt-free swimming. Any suggestions of good CA lakes/rivers to check out?
