October’s Gifts

 

Simple everyday joys. These are the gifts that make up our lives. I’m adding them to the blessing list this week.

1.  Family traditions.

First the feast, then the walk,

(note to self – let’s get that in earlier next year. It was almost dark by the time we made it back to the cars!)

and then back home for Thanksgiving pie.

We missed you so much Andrew, Hyekoo and Kinsey! ❤

2. Gathering chestnuts on a windy autumn day.

“Collecting nuts for our squirrel!” 🙂

3.  An autumn trail adventure with the wacky friends.

The sun is shining today and I’m heading to the center of the Island with my camera. Rolling hills, long winding red dirt roads and glorious autumn vistas are all waiting for me! Like our famous little red-head said “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!”

Thanks for visiting!

with love,

Sweet September

 

Welcome to Friday’s Blessing List!

We had a few cooler days last week and I thought perhaps the Island had made the transition to fall but, no, I was wrong. This week we had some of the warmest temperatures of the whole summer! So what does that mean??

1. Bonus Beach days!
