Some of these photos may look similar to some of you if you follow me on Instagram. Even though I am not quite as obsessed with this app as I have been in the past, I still have an appreciation for it. I still look at it almost every day, although I don't post quite as frequently.
I figured I'd share some of my favorite photos that I've posted on Instagram this August. It's fun to look back on a period of time as represented in photographs. I've been thinking how quickly this month went by, but when I look back at these photographs I at least feel like I've experienced a lot of fun and beauty during August.
This August, I took a style cue from the lovely Kater of All This Happiness in the form of hair bow/ribbon hair accessories! She is also an amazing partner in thrifting crime.
This August, along with seemingly every other month of my "adult" life, I ventured into new yummy and adorable cafes and diners.
This August, I started running outside. So much more challenging and a fair amount more entertaining.
This August, Kater had a beautiful birthday party in her backyard with red wine, buttermilk cupcakes, and candlelight.
This August my sweet Christophe returned to me. Such an event called for daytrips and gallivanting.
I hope that you all enjoyed your August as much as I did. As excited as I am for fall, I am grateful for the fact that I really feel as though I made a lot of my month of August. My drive for life seems mostly to be based upon a "light at the end of the tunnel" frame of mind. I'm always rushing through the present in order to reach this "better" place in the future. Slowly but surely, I feel like I'm developing a greater appreciation for the present and I am so thankful for that.
And I'm thankful for any of you who take the time to read what I write on this blog. It means more to me than you may know.
