Seven on Saturday — 8/13/22

Well hello there, friend!

It’s so good to be back with you this Saturday morning! I’m enjoying a beautiful cool August morning today (doesn’t that sound crazy). We went out for ice cream last night after dinner, and I actually needed a sweater sitting outside! It’s definitely not typical mid-August Kentucky weather, but I will take it!

It certainly puts me in an early Autumn mood, even if I am still trying to hold on to summer!

It was back to school for us this week, with Caroline’s first day of 8th grade on Wednesday! With school back in session and volleyball almost every night, it’s keeping us hopping around here!


Organizing Your Cookbooks in Pantry


Speaking of hopping with activity — this week on the blog, I posted about some great tips for getting organized this month. With back to school activities starting again, it’s great time to restart good habits and get our homes in order as we head into fall!

That’s all for this Saturday! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m off to volleyball and a sweet send off party for our son who’s moving to Nashville in a week! It’s definitely going to be “all the feels” around here for the next few days!

Have a beautiful weekend, friend!
