Aw Amanda. I have missed this place while I've been on vacation. I needed to hear this today. We all have these days, all of us, whether me admit it or not. Bravo for being honest and open. I too have cursed at my rabbits today after escaping for the 3 times this week!!!

I can't wait to get our copy from you! I also do not think you're selling me your book. But haters are gonna hate I suppose. My special place as a child was the bay. It was my backyard literally as a child. :) Now my kids have a big back yard (an acre) and a river to explore!

What a lovely giveaway! My little ones would love this... and me too :)
Steve- While I am not sure what your trade is, I must say you are quite the writer! So happy that you all are done with the heat wave. Here in Virginia we also only have two seasons.. a long hot humid summer and a short snowy winter ;) I grew up in a city called Virginia Beach- HUGE tourist destination in the summer, so I feel your pain. I still know all my hometown backroads from those crowded crazy summers.

You and me both Amanda. I've done the same thing a few times too many. I love knitting for the kids too for the same reason! And if it doesn't fit the eldest, it will fit a littler one!

We live in Virginia. One day last week our heat index was 133!!!!! Even our house was not cool and I think I only took the kids outside at 7am for less than 10 minutes. It was dangerous out. I filled up a pool for my animals. Even my chickens went for a swim. :( So we've been crafting a lot, we watched a "the sound of music" and made LOTS of fresh lemonade! Not to mention we have to move into our new house this weekend!

We live right next to Colonial Williamsburg! We love visiting and it never gets old. As a history major in college we also spent a lot of time there. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely, truly lovely. Summer and Fall were my favorite childhood seasons. We had a similar weekend on Virginia's Eastern Shore. Sadly however I left my camera at home (it was a 2 hour drive for us and I have yet to master packing up little ones efficiently!!!) But we still had a great time and instead of snapping pictures I was more involved. Beautiful memories they were too!

I am so very jealous. We live in a suburb with a big backyard. I would love to keep bees. My husband's German side of the family are bee keepers. Right now we have 5 chickens, 3 rabbits, 2 geese, and 2 ducks. I think once we've mastered our poultry, then I can plead for bees :)

I am so happy that she turned for you and that you got to have a little peek! I found out both my children's genders and had wonderful hospital births. This time around I will not find out the gender and try for a homebirth! Funny how that switches on you? I am just so happy for you all!
