summer in a nutshell: some things i saw along the way

technically, we have a few more weeks of summer. but the start of september and the start of school always feels like the end of summer. i’m reflecting back on this summer, and it was such a good one. filled with things i wanted to do, and things i didn’t have to do. how lucky to have the choice…

there were a lot of road trips, through hilly country roads and along beautiful landscape. my header above was just one such view along the way. another? these photos below. someone had quite the collection of birdhouses placed along posts on the quiet road. had i not been looking, i might have missed these. here they are, a curious little collection. but who am i to judge what someone may choose to collect and display?

i hope you enjoy these photos. the feel of them sums up my summer for me. but maybe that’s because i can still hear the cicadas in the trees and feel the heat of the sun that was on me when i took these photos. or maybe because this summer had a lot of little moments where i could just stop and see, and carry on.

    We are just going into Spring down here and I’m loving the feeling of being ‘awake’ again with the gorgeous weather! These bird houses are adorable!! It’s amazing that someone took the time to put them all out there. Very quirky and cute!
