Autumn is Here

Hello dear friends and followers, it's been awhile, but I am alive and well. Although I did hurt my back this past weekend with fall cleanup. I think that is why I am finally getting to blog and sit with an ice pack on my lower back. Yesterday it was heat that felt good but today it is cold that is helping. I have all this energy but my body is not cooperating, so frustrating and sad......but I will heal and mend and be raring to go soon, I HOPE.

So this summer the two weddings were amazing, both daughters married, happy and blessed. Can you believe we are still waiting for some of the professional photos. I'm sure there will be some beautiful wedding photos for Christmas presents :  )  

Our renovation in Martha's Vineyard is complete. It truly turned out so beautifully and the new space and kitchen is wonderful. We didn't get any real time to enjoy it yet but we will next year. We'll be closing it up for the winter and reopening early spring!!! (the weddings took all our vacation time...so worth it needless to say)

Autumn is here and the colors are finally coming, really slow this year due to the dryness we have had. But the past rain and sun this past week did it's magic! The weather is chilly in the morning, warm in day and then back to chilly in the evening....three change of outfits!

Now that all the activities and planning for the two weddings are over and the renovation is done, I'm a little in limbo and finding myself again. I truly loved the whole wedding planning and actually miss all the family hustle and bustle. The holidays will be here before long, so I will be fine.

Let show some photos

                                           Love this.....see the heart❤️

                                           Still lots of flowering plants


           Oh dear.....don't know what happened in my yard.....but I do know it was not Jack

Thanks for visiting my dear friends, HAPPY OCTOBER, and I sure hope I am back soon! I have missed my blog and all of your lovely visits and comments.

Next time I will share my hexie baby blanket and books I have read this summer. (and there are many)

  2. So nice to see this lovely post today dear Robin! Your summer was certainly an amazing one with two weddings and the renovation too.
