Beyond compare.

I truly believe
in the power and beauty of the seasons
and in living completely within in each one
as it takes its place
at center stage.

Because of this attitude,
my blog here
quite cyclical.

I like that, myself--
as a way to reflect on what has changed
and what has stayed the same,
since last Summer's ending,
for example,
or the Autumn beginning of a few years past,
and I hope that you do not mind
the revisiting.

I have quite a few photos to share
in the coming days
from our annual trip
out to the ocean.

Finally got around
to making and posting
the labels I made for
lovely Vanilla Peach.

this jam was made
on the exact same date this year
that I made this exact same flavor
last year!

August 14th must be a good date.

I think this might be
one of my favorite photos
from the whole summer.

Our last trip across the mountains
for this summer.

Next time we visit this place,
we will be married.

I don't often post the details
of my personal life here,
but I am too overjoyed not to share
that my boyfriend and I
have gotten engaged!

After 6 1/2 years,
we're having a party
and making it official.

We'll be growing the wedding
all this Autumn and Winter,
so it can hopefully bloom
next Spring or Summer
and I am ecstatic
