End of Summer Photos

This is such a bittersweet time of year. The long, warm days are growing shorter and cooler. We still have plenty of beautiful days ahead, but there is just that feeling in the air that autumn is about to take over. I do look forward to the fall, but there’s something about the freedom that comes with summer that I always miss.

I took some photos on a recent gorgeous late summer day when the sun was shining bright. We never have to lose that summer feeling when we document these special days.

Happy Valentine’s Day!❀️

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. -William Shakespeare

Today is Valentine’s Day! I’ve always enjoyed the holiday, because who doesn’t like red & pink, flowers, and candy?! I have always been drawn to a romantic style of decorating as well, which goes hand in hand with Valentine’s Day.
