Hello there!

A bit of a late start to the week- I've been feeling decidedly under the weather with a summer flu (it always feels much worse in summer, don't you find?) and a little slow in getting my act together. Over the past week or so, I've really started to notice a bit of a shift - there's a crisper feeling in the air, suddenly the humidity seems to have subsided, and all around the light in the sky seems to have changed. The dramatic contrast of sunny skies and deep shadows seem to be telling us that September is just around the corner.
While I'm really looking forward to the autumn this year, I find myself wanting to still savour and indulge in a little more summer. 


Forget sun-loungers - a full outdoor bed would be the ultimate indulgence for lounging poolside and soaking up every last minute of the summer sun.


Follow that with dining al fresco under the trees filled with frothy white blossoms (and sharing a cuddle with two adorable little kids). Seems like a perfect farewell to sunny
 summer days...


Hope your week's off to a great start and you're taking the opportunity to soak up
 the last of the summer sunshine!

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well...it's definitely worse in the summer. I've been noticing the fall air as well- kind of loving it- me and humidity don't mix.

Love the pics. The little girls looks so happy and carefree. The end of summer is all about grabbing those last few days of sunshine and warmth. Outdoor living spaces are so nice because they can, in some climates, work year round.

Oh you poor thing! Yes, Summer flues seem to linger that little big longer and they are harder to shake. Hope you are feeling better by now. x

Loving the pictures here today. Such a gorgeous spot to snooze - I wouldn't move all day really! :)

Hugs from Sweden (did I tell you we moved..?)

That is a good view especially that trees blooming with white blossoms. And the kids seems to be really happy hugging that goat. I hope I can have a good farewell for my summer days.
