So sorry for the silence around here these past months. Our summer has come and is going so quickly. We ended up with lots of memories that we want to hold onto forever.
In July we got to take our annual Indiana trip, which happened to be some of the best two weeks ever. We were refreshed and encouraged, while we relaxed, visited lots of friends and family, went flea marketing, put up about 13 dozen ears of corn, got our hair cut, went shopping, sang, laughed, and drank quite a few Mountain Dew icies. We were also so happy to have our brother Joe there for a few of the days!
And speaking of Joe, a few weeks ago we had the opportunity to spend a hot (humid) Saturday with him. We watched him work (amazing – especially in that hot forge!), and fed almost the entire school with homemade pizzas. We've spent lots of fun weekends with him, and can't believe school is almost out! Joe's been able to meet some awesome people, and we are so thankful that we're able to call them our friends now too.
Oh, and we girls have also taken advantage of matching a couple times. Which is funny, considering that Mom would match us ALL the time when we were little (and we didn't always like it). Now, we have actually done it on purpose a couple of times, including a 'maxi dress' Sunday.
Some of the most exciting news this summer was the launch of Abigail's book, Modern Prairie Sewing! It's been amazing watching her promote it and exciting to read the good reviews from happy seamstresses!
We feel so blessed to have gotten to meet some wonderful people over this summer that have become fast friends. We've loved getting to do things with them including a shopping day, movie + snack fest + kayak adventure, and photo shoot fun.
We do have good news for you…. our birthday bash starts Monday!!! We will plan on sending out newsletters so if you haven't signed up, you might want to so you can keep up to date. Lots of inventory-ing going on around here.
Not much else has been going on, except lots of reading and watching Perry Mason before bed. Hope your summer has been as good. xoxo
PS…. Have you spotted that badge on the top in the sidebar?? Coming soon!!
