Summer stillness

“Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that He may come and shower righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12

Hello friends! It has been a while. I am taking this time to reflect on all of the beauty and blessings that summer brought our home and family. The golden sunsets, our garden harvest, the freedom we feel jumping into cool water, dinner parties with friends under string lights, camping in the backyard, and taking a nap after a summer afternoon swim. Summer is refreshing to the soul. As our favorite season is coming to an end, I can’t help but feel excited for this next season of cool weather and cozy nights. Side note: I fell in love and married the man of my dreams, but that deserves its own blog post! 😉
