happy monday

Happy Monday from chilly and grey Whitehorse. Today is going to be a slow family day and I'm thankful for it.
Winslow has the day off and we have plans to go downtown to see some music in the park at lunch. It is one of the last weeks for it, I guess things are starting to slow down around here. The summer feels like it is drawing near the end. I've been noticing a few leaves here and there turning colour and the nights are getting chilly. Last night it went down to 5C.
August seems to be flying by so fast. The days just seem to weave in and out of themselves. We are busy and pack in as much as we can, knowing that this time that we are enjoying outdoors won't last forever. In a few weeks my sweet little boy will be turning 2. At the end of the month we will be going away for a much needed family vacation. Soon our thoughts will be turning to cozy sweaters, bon fires in the backyard, warm drinks like cider and more time spent indoors. But for now, August is full of excitement and adventure, and we are trying to soak it all up.
I hope this finds you well my friends. Happy Monday.


  1. 5C at night? Yikes! Enjoy that sunshine and warmth during the daytime while you can, my dear. I intend to make the most of the last month of summer vacation. I am definitely not ready for the fall yet {though you paint a lovely picture of it... and I do love a bonfire and a big pot of soup on the stove!}

  2. I was just thinking the same: The summer is flying, flying by. And although I love the fall, there's always a little sadness when the summer is over and done for. Especially when I haven't crossed off half of my "to do" list items. Whoops. :)

    I bet you're anxious for your family vacation, and to savor the last few months of just being the Three Musketeers. :) I hear that going from a fam of three to a fam of four, while exciting and so fun to welcome a new member, can be a bittersweet transition! But I'm no expert...I'm just going from one to two in my world! :)

  3. Oh, this is a beautiful post:). Cheers to August & summer; you're right, it is going by so quickly. I hope you and your boys are able to slow it down as much as you can although warm cider does sound prett-y nice) :). xoxo, Blair

  4. Happy Monday! (Well, Tuesday now. :) )
    You both look so cute. :)
    Yes, August is flying by. Thank GOD. Haha! I know, I am being really impatient.
    But today the sun is shining, and I will be soaking up the last of the summer sun.
    Thinking of you!!
    xoxo Dawn

  5. ooooh I know we should be cherishing summer but now you have me excited to sit in your backyard having a bonfire and sipping hot apple cider wrapped in warm fleece jackets while the little ones run around with red cheeks.


Oh goody....I love comments!
