Summer time



I can honestly say this has been one of our best summers yet! I'm not sure if it is the kids' ages or all the gatherings with friends and family, but I feel so at home this summer. 

We started off with a huge celebration for our little man - all in orange including orange hair (his favourite color). Then it was off camping with friends and family, but more importantly swimming! We swam day and night, in the sun and under the stars. It felt like a dream :) 

From the rustic country we quickly jumped into urban life for the Whyte Ave Art walk in Edmonton. A whole weekend filled with thousands of art lovers, and to my huge surprise - lots of sales. We left there so grateful and feeling overwhelmed with God's blessings. 

Sprinkle in country weddings surrounded by sun drenched yellow canola fields, lazy afternoons in a hammock and saskatoon picking the size of grapes, no wonder this is becoming one of my favourite seasons. I do hope your summer is as beautiful :) 

For PPF I'm submitting these two beach gals, made our of reclaimed wood, oil paint, leather and metal bits.
