Summer’s End

Simply Lovely Styled Photography; Anne of Green Gables

I’ve been meaning to come visit here more often -Kindred Spirits Club- and now that a new Season is upon us I hope I will make it a routine! I do so love it here with you lovely ladies!

I have already been contemplating Fall and all it’s simple, but glorious, treasures. I love the Seasons and I believe there is “…a time for every Season.”

Today, I’m celebrating Summer’s End; bittersweetness indeed!

This Summer was a big one for me as I planned several deluxe styled shoots and my photography went from amateur to professional. I’m glad I pushed myself and it was a delightful Season with many gorgeous photos to show for it.Simply Lovely Styled Photography

However, I find myself burnt out and have been pondering what my next Season of Creativity needs to look like. I am more of an introvert and gain energy for life from quiet time, walks and one-on-one get-togethers rather than large groups.

My next Season of Creativity needs to be Integrated with my everyday, real life. I need to Connect with my family and friends. I want to embrace the WILD of Fall. and those are my words for Fall 2015: Integrate. Connect. Wild.

Dreamin: -This Summer I felt that “pieces of the puzzle” were coming together for my book; Country Cottage Living; ABC’s of Summer. I collected all my photos needed and notes and began Graphic Design (just last week!). I soon realized after a couple days that this project was going to require a LOT of concentration and quiet time on the computer. I still want to do it but I think I’m postponing this project. I do not want to spend all my days on the computer. -Sometimes Dreams change. -Sometimes we change.

Dream Garden Woodworks Rustic Table

My husband built me this outdoor rustic table this Summer. I’m completely loving it and hope to use if for a variety of occasions; including more Kindred Creatives Gatherings/Workshops. (Someday, perhaps you all will join me here. We will talk of “Anne” and “Beatrix” and collaborate and drink TEA!
