Wow. I can't believe it's been about a month since my last post. The virus really took it's sweet time working it's way out this time. Oh well, moving forward now.
I feel like I have so much to share, and I really want to hear your thoughts on quite a few things I have been thinking about, but I don't want to turn this post into a novel so they will wait...just for now.
Would you believe me if I told you I barely knit, didn't sew at all nor do any other handwork? Completely unlike me. I can never sit still and always have to be doing something with my hands, but there was a good reason, trust me! I'll go into that a bit more later in the week. For now I thought I would share a few very late summer decorating and nature table pics. We love the changing seasons and it is always so much fun for the girls and I to take down last season's things and replace them with the new season. They really look forward to it and it helps them to follow the rhythm of the year.
The girls helped a lot with decorating the nature table. I love their fairy in the boat. I took this pic more towards the beginning of summer, so the nature table has changed a bit now with a lot more nature finds.
Welcome back Father Sun!
Our summertime meal candle (We use this for every meal we eat)
Father Sun wet on wet watercolor painting to symbolize summer (We use symbols for everything in our home instead of words, until the girls will learn to read, much later on)

The picture below isn't exactly summer but I had to share it. I could have sworn I had posted it in the springtime but I somehow managed not to. My beautiful and talented friend Rae made these gorgeous wooden eggs for the girls and surprised us with them. We absolutely adore them. K keeps hers on her nightstand by her angel candle holder and C has hers in our room in the window by her side of the bed. Sweet treasures, for sure.
Thank you again so much Rae!!
I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Wishing you all love and light!!
