{Ruffled}

I cannot get enough of Ruffled... who could with eye-candy like this to lift your spirit?
I'm feeling the need for a great old tree, a vintage quilt and and a sweet smooch with my Manly! :)

to Fall or not to Fall...

Summer came to a rather abrupt end here with cold rainy days and has yet to recover. I am still hoping for some sunny September days, as I'm not really ready to embrace Fall yet!! It seems to poke around each corner though, in the bright red apples on our neighbour's tree, the yellowing birch leaves and the cool, dewy morning air. But... I think I'll live in denial for a few more weeks at least...

The one bright spot in the cloudy days has been spending time with 17 excited little Grade One students. I just love seeing their smiling faces come into the classroom each day! I have a great little group and am quite confident it has been the best start to a year yet :) I am thankful though, for a long weekend to rest up and get geared up for another week. I think I'll spend it like this...
