I can't believe summer has drawing to a close! Kids are back to school. It's starting to cool down a bit overnight. And at work I'm starting to see apple cider stations at weddings!
August started out with my birthday....and this photo should tell you I got EXACTLY what I wanted!! Good job hubby!
I had to attend a black-tie wedding at the beginning of the month as well and made this set to wear with a simple black gown.
I am ADORE Swarovski's antique pink crystal color!
We also spent some time in New Jersey for vacation. We stay in southern NJ and the house we stay at is in a complex situated on the Delaware Bay. Five minutes (walking) from the house is this path that leads to the bay shore and it's my absolute favorite part of going down there!
This year was just as delightful and we did plenty of beach combing, enjoyed sunsets on the water and there was plenty of wildlife.
There were lots of birds too, which I love, but I never brought my good camera with a zoom to capture some of them. Clearly though the iPhone does the job for everything else!
For a few days, one of my son's close friends, from when we lived in Maryland, joined us at the beach and that was tons of fun too!

When we returned home, Jackson continued to help at the farm where one of my company's restaurants is located. Here is also are a couple of our veggie hauls when he put in a few hours at the farm!

In the meanwhile, I've been taking hundreds, if not thousands of pictures for work. Lot and lots and lots of food and drink. Our farm has been unbelievably abundant this year and it shows in all the menus and specials at work. Here is a sampling:
Finally - I'm still plugging away getting the quilts assembled for Bead-It-Forward. There are some pretty fun items available to bid on! Check it out! http://bead-it-forward.com/auction/
