I feel like it's been forever since we've visited! I hope your summer is going well.
Our family took some much needed time away from the buzz of blogging and social media to recharge and refresh by the sea in our tiny off-grid beach cottage.
We've been very lazy, soaking up the sun, ( and some rain too ) reading, walking, eating, connecting with our summer friends and enjoying some quality time with our teens. I hope you've had a chance to enjoy some " down" time too! It's so important to give in to the long slow days of summer and let ourselves " just be" once in a while.
Along with the anticipation of our vacation we were also excited about our " first ever" Dandelion House magazine article.
We had the great honor of having our garden featured in the beautiful pages of The Cottage Journal magazine this month and I can't tell you how exciting it was to see the little red hen house and our treasured flower gardens inside along with so many other wonderful features. Katie Wood did a fabulous job with the article ( which she titled, " Put Down Some Roots and Bloom ") and they even used our photos which was extra exciting! We had fun sharing it with all of our friends at the beach and I couldn't wait to get home and share the excitement with you too!
Here's the spread!
If you've got some down time comin' your way, and you haven't discovered this lovely magazine, let me tell you every article is a feast for the soul! Pick up a copy and steel away to your favorite escape ( even if it's just the bathroom with the door locked) and enjoy!
