September has been the perfect end to summer and the start of my favourite season with so much exploration and good food. Whether it was this past weekend’s camping trip in Ontario or exploring the Canada Malting Silos multiple times I’ve had so much fun this month. My favourite moment would have to be when Victor and I went out to our favourite Indian food restaurant and drank champagne in celebration. Honorable mention goes to watching sunsets from various locations here and in Ontario (I’m a total sucker for a good sunrise or sunset). I’ve also done some serious crafting by starting my vintage slide curtains , making a slide lamp shade and starting my new found hobby of drying flowers (it’s for a future project that I’m doing in November, if you want to join me start drying flowers now!). Even the dip in temperature has been good, yes it’s sad because it’s too cold to swim (didn’t stop me one bit this weekend) but it’s perfect for walking weather and who doesn’t like walking around watching the leaves change color? I’ve had a pretty positive September and I’m working toward a lot of great things so October is going to be a lot of hard work mixed in with autumn fun.
a few select posts from June:
Monthly DIY: Vintage Slide LampWorking on the blog this month has also been really fulfilling and I have so many projects going on right now it’s hard to know what to do on a giving day. It’s been a year and a half of running an almost daily blog and I’m still finding my footing and what I enjoy to do so it’s been great being able to tweak things here and there and finding the right tempo for me. One of my biggest frustrations right now in life is that I am getting unsatisfied lately with my photography and wanting to do certain things and having them fall short. I also stopped doing Saturday posts so I could focus on my formal website and haven’t even made a dent in the work I need to get it up so I am hopping I have a chance to apply myself a bit more this upcoming month and find that motivation that’s so hard to find. There is no updates or changes for the blog right now, but I am loving having Featured Artists back. Sharing artists I find makes me so happy so I hope you’ve liked those posts too. Hope you had a great September and let me know in the comments what you’re favourite post was this month!
