September Favourites

TeaSetting

I’m going to keep it short and sweet. It’s been a long week and today I am all kinds of tired. But spring is in the air, and the streets that I walk down daily are blushing red with bottlebrush trees all abloom; last week the kids and I foraged this bunch as we meandered home from the library, and it’s been sitting on my desk ever since. At this very moment I’m en route to a writers festival down south, bub fast asleep in my arms, old friends to catch up with. Life could be worse.

Enjoy!
