Me & Mine {August 2016}

Another month has whizzed by and I can’t honestly believe that tomorrow is the first of September! I’m an Autumn girl at heart and normally I’m so excited when September rolls around as I always feel like it marks the start of Autumn and the countdown to Christmas. This year however, I’m still not ready to say goodbye to Summer just yet. I’ve really enjoyed these warmer months and I’ll be sad to see those sunny evenings slowly be replaced by the dark winter nights. Spontaneous walks at the beach on a Friday evening will soon be traded in for cosy evenings sat in front of the telly under a blanket with the fire on. Both equally lovely of course, but I’m just not ready yet.

August has been another lovely month for us. We enjoyed a sunny weekend in Norfolk at the beginning of the month visiting family, we’ve had a couple of BBQs, lots of play dates and plenty of down time too. For the most part, the weather has been glorious so we’ve tried to make the most of it and have spent the majority of time outside!

I’ve really noticed how grown up Bella is becoming this month too. She’s stringing full sentences together more and more now and I absolutely adore the conversations we have, especially after we’ve been apart for the day when she’s at nursery and I’m at work. She spends the whole drive home telling me all about what she’s been up to, who she played with and what games they played. It’s one of my favourite parts of the day.

This month’s Me & Mine photo was taken on our way back from Norfolk. I love cornfields and so we made a quick pitstop to jump out and take some snaps although I think our tripod was wonky as this was the only decent one we got. We had originally hoped to visit the lavender at some point this month to take our family photos but the day we had planned to go was the one day it chucked it down all day! Ah well, there’s always next year.

Despite not being ready to let go of Summer just yet, I am in fact really looking forward to September. Josh and I have a child free spa weekend away booked in which I am beyond excited about. And we also have a couple of birthdays to celebrate and some fun plans with friends too. I’m sure this time next month I will be fully embracing all things Autumn and loving every moment of it and no doubt the sunshine will have already become a distant memory 😉

    I love these photos! I’m always on the hunt around my area for a nice field to get some snaps in but no luck yet. I love seeing September roll in too, Autumn is my favourite xo

    Such lovely photos. I agree entirely, I love autumn but I would happily have a few more weeks of summer as this one has been particularly great x
