august afterglow

Well, here we are. The last month of summer.August. Overgrown greenery and the beginning of crisp leaves. Beautiful evening light. The last of the longest days and preparation for a cool (hopefully, but doubtful - I hate climate change) fall.We will enjoy afternoon tea for a wedding celebration in Chicago and welcome the return of dear friends who made a huge difference halfway around the world.This summer had rough patches and this little heart has been pushed and pulled in too many directions, but we're getting through it. Just a little bit at a time. *direct link*
