Last month we took a little trip to Marina Skate Park, which is about an hour away from us. Our friend Tony, with Misiano Skateparks built it a few years ago and we wanted Cadell to check it out. As usual, we had a blast. Cadell loved it, and I had fun shooting photos at a different location. The atmosphere was pretty nice because it was right on the river. I’m looking forward to our next adventure!

Summer is winding down and Cadell starts 2nd grade on Monday. We went to meet his new teacher at his school this morning and he saw some of his friends. We’re all looking forward to getting back into a routine with school, work, and I’ll be joining the gym again. We still have some fun things planned for the weekends after school starts, but for now it’s back to business. Since it has been raining almost every day, I’ve been organizing around the house and going through things. I’m also posting more on Instagram, which is a lot of fun for me. It motivates me to keep things fresh around here and it’s a great creative outlet.

The biggest news here is… we adopted a new kitten! We adopted her through the Humane Society and she’s the sweetest, best kitty. We’ve had her a week now, and we’re looking forward to many years with her.

I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of July! This summer is flying by.. We’ve had lots of rainy afternoons here in Florida during this month, so as soon as we had a sunny afternoon, I snapped some photos of the latest around the house. I picked up a few pottery pieces (keepers) at the flea market and thrift stores, and the teak cabinet was a birthday present from my sweetie (last October). I realized that I never posted it, most likely due to Cadell’s toys being scattered everywhere. I managed to steal my space back long enough to shoot some photos!

I hope everyone is having a great summer. We’re keeping busy with lots of yard work, and the guys have been skateboarding at least 3 times a week. Kelly and I will be taking a little day trip on Saturday to do some thrifting, so I’m always excited about that. I’m hoping to bring some goodies home for my shop.

We are less than a month into our summer break, and we’re having a blast! On the last day of school, I took Cadell to the skate park and they were having tryouts for a local skate team. He wanted to give it a shot, so he competed for a spot and made it! It was a great way to kick off the summer.

Aside from working, we’ve been thrifting, going to the beach, and getting together with friends for skate sessions and BBQs. I love this time with my little family!

I just love the light coming into our home this time of year. Kelly found the hairpin stand at a thrift store a few months back, and he added a wood top for me. It was probably an old stand for a fish tank, but it works for us.

I’m excited about spring, and have started to give my plants more attention. I’ve also continued to collect vintage pottery, and I try to sell most of what I find, but these are a few that made the cut (for now). The hoop chair has been sitting in the garage for close to a year (or more). It needs some love, but I brought it inside just to play around and see how it looks in our space. I love it! I actually talked Kelly into keeping it, and he’s going to refinish it for me when he gets around to it. I rescued that little citrus tree from our yard when we first moved here. It was just a little stick with a few leaves. I love how it’s coming along.

I’m blown away that it’s almost May! Summer, here we come…

I have lots of great items in my shop at the moment, and I’ll be adding more this week. I can’t believe it’s the last day of March! I had to sneak a post in since I haven’t posted at all this month. Shame on me! I’ve just been busy with the little one, working, and trying to gather more items for my shop. Our spring break just ended, so we’re back to our regular schedule. I’m counting the days til summer!

I’m going to make it a point to post more often again, so I’ll be back with some more updates. Have a great day, everyone!
