Can you believe it is September?  I can't.  Updates here came to a hault because so many other things have taken a front seat.  Spending time with Addison, only her second summer ever which is much different than when she was only 2-5 months old.  Loving running around with her, watering plants, going to events, etc.  Then there are the home to do items like working on our deck, refinishing the garage (putting epoxy down, getting shelves) and adding more to our backyard.  We planted nothing but perennials and the yellow purple combination is so nice!  We have cloreopsis, a vibrant purple butterfly bush for bees and butterflies, some penstemons to hopefully attract hummingbirds, a yellow trumpet vine that should look gorgeous when it blooms next year, russian sage and some really pretty whiteish lightpinkish petals.  I can't remember the name right now.  Also, this month was my birthday!  Flipped another digit.

Lots of change at the same time, trying to juggle and enjoy.  Carve out the life I want for me and my family and that process isn't always an easy and clear-cut one.

I've missed you and in order to get more organized and get things done; managing cleaning this home, the projects up above, painting, putting more paintings in my etsy shop, exercising, posting here, I am putting everything on a Google calendar.  I also use Wunderlist which is an excellent app for sharing lists/projects.  So far that is working the best for grocery shopping with Raul and I.  Do you have any tips for organizing your dreams and household?  I absolutely love crossing items off of lists.  Best thing ever.

Oh and did you do anything amazing this summer?  The highlight of my summer was going to Sante Fe. Now it is the place where I took a photojournalism road-trip in college, got engaged  and went on road-trip with my parents/lil family.  Love.
