Late Summer at the Farmhouse...

(Some affiliate links provided, and some product was received in exchange for promotion. All opinions are my own.)

It's hard to believe this is the last day of August. Sweet summer is winding down and the kids will be going back to school next week. Such a mixture of emotions as we head into this school year... but mostly just grateful for all the memories we've made together as a family this summer, and the closeness that we've shared. 

I'm thinking of all you parents out there who, like us, might be entering a new stage, new school, or new chapter with one or more of your children. Change can be difficult - weighing all the choices, wanting the best for your children, but not knowing with certainty just how things will go. If this is you, I feel you friend. We are praying hard over here, and trusting that this will be a great year for our oldest who is beginning high school (what?!), our middle who is in well, middle school, and our youngest who is heading into third grade. 

That's a little bit of what's in my heart, now onto what's in the house...


In the spirit of late summer, I filled this chippy antique water bucket with pear branches from our yard...


And I'm loving our new firewood log carrier from The VanCrafts. We used it the other night as we tried to squeeze in some quality campfire time before summer wraps up...


And for all of you who have been anticipating fall, but patiently waiting to decorate for it, I believe you are officially allowed to bring out the pumpkins, acorns and cornstalks... tomorrow (September 1st)! 

I'm not quite there yet, but do have bundles of wheat on standby. Stay tuned!

Thank you for stopping by today...
