Wow! Can you believe it’s almost August? Where has the summer gone?! With the days flying by, we’re making time to purposefully celebrate these last few days of summer, and this week’s roundup has lots of ideas to help you make the most of these gloriously golden days!
Hello all and welcome to another week of our series, French Country Fridays! I’m in the throes of summer now for sure – today is our sixth day straight of a heat wave that doesn’t seem to have any end in sight! So while still waiting for our backyard and our pool 🙁 to be finished, we’re trying to beat the heat any way we can.
When I was a kid, I never really understood why my parents and the other adults in my life loved summer so much. I mean, I loved summer because there was no school (clearly the best thing ever!) But why did they like it, when they still had to go to work? And now that I’m an adult, I think I know. Alcohol.
Lately I’ve been really loving mirrors. Because, ironically, of all the things I decorate with, mirrors are not usually one of them. I tend to buy art more than I buy mirrors. Not including bathroom mirrors, I have two – two! – decorative mirrors in my whole home! I have a mirror over my living room mantel, and my beloved French antique trumeau mirror in my entry way which is one of my all-time favorite things I’ve ever purchased. But I’ve been wanting to add a couple more.
I have always loved Fridays. The way that the whole weekend is spread out ahead of you, just full of possibility. There is just nothing like that feeling! We usually spend our Friday nights making homemade pizza and all watching a movie together, and it’s one of my absolute favorite things we do as a family. So, here’s to Fridays, and inspiring you with another week of French Country Fridays!
