Film: Summer 2012

Well, Summer is finally winding down in Atlanta and Fall is slowly taking over. The mornings are getting chillier and the leaves are already starting to fall. The transition to the new season has been a good one...things feel like their finally beginning to move and shift after months of feeling stagnant. I know this 'season' has been for a reason but I'm quite ready to move on to a new one. I'm excited to see what the next few months bring. Not at all sure what to expect but I'm trusting the Lord in that.

I spent so much time in my little porch garden this summer. I got a bunch of plants from various people and my sweet love bought me an awesome little table and chairs. I don't think I came inside for like a week afterwards, ha! It's been the perfect space for my quiet times and processing all that's been going on in life. Also spent time reading, writing, eating, watching the birds...I've totally loved even just having a place to get out of the apartment for a while (barely, but still. It counts!).
I shot almost an entire roll of film of just my porch. I want to remember the time I spent out there and I love the way that film captured it. The film photos aren't as clean as digital ones and this makes them feel more realistic and evokes different, more personal memories.

Wrote a handful of letters to my sister while she was away for the summer. I love snail mail!
I discovered cold brewed tea this summer and drank so much iced tea that I now have a slight caffeine problem, ha.
Sweet memories. Looking forward to making more this Fall and being able to drink hot tea and cider out there!

My in-laws are in town for the weekend! It already feels like it should be Friday. But without a job or any sort of schedule, everyday feels like in could be Friday. Or Tuesday. Or Thursday. I lose track of the days a lot.

Hope you all are having a good week xo

And many more...

Well, we're getting ready to wrap up the weekend. A long, four day, birthday weekend! My sweet man's birthday was on Saturday and we've celebrated a good three times so far. He's so worth celebrating! I'm super grateful for him and his life. So thankful for everything that has made him into the man he is today and so excited that I get to walk with him and see the man that he becomes! I know the Lord has even greater things in store for him.

Happy birthday, my baby. You're amazing and such a blessing xo
