Hello, friends! I hope that this post finds you well and enjoying the height of summer. We’ve been in a heat wave here in New Jersey for weeks and it’s showing no signs of slowing. The humidity is high and the temperatures soar in the nineties day after day.

We’ve been filling up our days with as much summer fun as possible. That means lots of pool-time, adventures in the woods, play dates & picnics at the park, and visits from the ice cream truck.

It’s been a full and challenging season for me. I’ve still been wading through some big, difficult life changes. I’ve also been very busy with work. My job as secretary of our church has taken a very busy turn as we welcomed a new pastor at the beginning of the month. Blogging and photography have been put on the back-burner a little bit, but I am trying to ramp up efforts in those areas, too. And finally, I’ve been weaving again. I have several pieces complete and they’ll be going up for sale in my Etsy shop soon, which I am over-the-moon about. It’s a long-time dream come true of mine to sell products that I created with my own hands. I hope to write more about that and about my love of weaving sometime soon.

I can’t believe that we’re here at the end of July already. It’s amazing how sometimes these summer days seem to stretch on forever, and still the months fly by so quickly.

I have so much to say. My heart is heavy and saturated with thoughts and emotions. I’d love to spill them out, but instead it’s rather like there is a cork inside of me, holding everything down in me, and the pressure builds. But I’m glad to be getting this post out, at least. I hope that in the coming days, more will flow from me — and more importantly — I hope that I’ll find the time. That certainly does seem to be lacking these days. I have to remind myself that life isn’t really about how much time we have, but rather, what we do with the time that we have.

On that note, I’m off to tackle the next item on my long & winding to-do list. I’m sending you lots of love and light, friends. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope that your days are full of joy and hope and promise.

Always and all ways–

P.S. The babies’ adorable sun hats are from my friend Emily’s shop, Blue Corduroy. Do give it a look. She is amazingly talented!
