Hello, friends!  Thanks for coming by!


Here we are…. the final week of summer.  Wow! Has it been fast, or what?   Seriously I’m done with the heat and humidity… and it’s nothing here in Michigan compared to those of you who live in the south… but none-the-less… it cramps my style and wears me down.  I’m looking forward to getting back in shape and into my walking and hiking routine.

With summer almost over… do you have any regrets?  Or… are you so done with summer that you can’t wait for _________?  What is it that your heart has been longing for come fall?

It’s pretty clear that many of you have already begun the seasonal transition.  We are thrilled with your wonderful fall projects and great ideas shared at last week’s Project Inspire{d}.  After linking up at the party, be sure to grab a beverage and sit down for some fabulous inspiration.   Be prepared to fill up your Pinterest board with all these clever and creative ideas!

  1. I’m still sad to say goodbye to summer but it’s a psychological thing I think as my brain remembers drizzly dreary Fall days in the Pacific NW. Thankfully we have a few months ahead of some of the best weather of the year and I too look forward to getting back into a walking routine. Too bad we aren’t neighbors as you would be so much fun to walk with.
    Thank you for all you do each week here Diane.
    Blessings friend,
    P.S. Still praying God’s best yes for y’all.

    • I’m sure what you’re experiencing right now is a huge change from the NW, Patti. You do have some wonderful weather ahead. 🙂 Oh, wouldn’t we have so much fun walking and talking together! What a lovely thought!
      Thanks for your prayers, sweet friend! It means SO much to me! {{hugs}}
