hello Monday...slowing summer down and Sharon Springs...

Summer is rolling to a close...
I feel like it melted away really. 
We did a ton of things, but there never seems to be enough time to take those small, slow moments.
You see in a summer-long of fun, it's those tiny moments that I remember as we move towards fall and the schedule of school and activities for the kiddos and frenzy of appearances for the Art Girls' RoadShow.

So there's nothing like making time stop like a walk through a new town with friends....a sit on a porch, a meander past old things...

Here Ben and Heath show me around Sharon Springs, NY where we'll be for the FOLK Market at the Harvest Fest -- you can read more about it on our events page or the website of The Fabulous Beekman Boys...

(It's going to be a great event - so mark your calendars for 9/21 & 9/22)




 

 

 Here's a peek at the Beekman's Store...you need to see it...
just delish in form and style.




 Sure hope you can join me and Ben, Heath and Oliver, Sue Parker and Laurie Meseroll on September 21 & 22....it will be a slow sweet weekend with art and handmade presented in this adorable old town...

Hope too you can slow your day day enough to see the small and wonderful details it holds...hello Monday

Hello old fashioned summer days...just a few more to savor...
Hello dear friends
Hello slow days, slow down a little more
Hello school supplies
Hello cleaning out kids cupboards, dressers and closets (how did they grow so much in 8 weeks?!?)
Hello Sharon Springs!
Hello shows coming soon...OH, NY and GA!

So Hello lots of event work to do...it takes a lot to pack, drive, unpack and set-up the contents of a 24' U-Haul truck thousands of miles... if I think too much about it, I might not do it! (No, yes I would the road trip part is a blast with great co-pilots!!)

Hello school supply lists...

Hello long, lazy days for the kids...hoping to fit another beach day in before the summer fades away...

Hello packing and unpacking and packing again to get ready for these Art Girls' RoadShow trips.

...we're baaaack!


 

Hello Monday…

It’s amazing what a change of scenery can do for the soul.
We’re just back from a trip to visit our friends in Munich…and with them we made a jaunt to Berlin and then we took off for a few days on our own to Austria for stops in Salzburg (yes, the hills really are alive with the Sound of Music if you’re wondering) and Innsbruck (because Anne loves how it “sparkles” with Swarovski and so do I!).

We are so very grateful to have had the opportunity to share this adventure and to introduce our kiddos to Germany and Austria. Here are some of my very fave shots of the trip that we’ll remember forever and ever.

The fortress dates from 180 AD-1650 AD…Europe kinda redefines “old” and “vintage”.



Theresa in the market with cherries…
 

Rory with an ice cream in "just the right size"...

The BMW welt and museum (Lars this is all your fault, I swear if you were Italian it would be Fiats my hubby would love…)
 
  Around the many squares and platzs…

in Berlin...




...in Salzburg...




The love locks on a pedestrian bridge in Salzburg...just bits of small magic everywhere...
So Hello and Happy Monday to all….I am ready for you week and happy to be home…

Hello to the afterglow of a good vacation, you’re keeping reality just at bay…


 Hello to our amazing hosts and a million thanks...here we are at Nymphenburg Castle with Amelie....



 The only pic of me and the hubby....




Hello to everything that’s so American and SOOOO BIG…from the cars to the fridge…our trip has the kids looking at things differently…

Hello to all our friends in Germany…
we miss you already.

Hello to my new Italian friend, Claudia…I met her on the train platform when I admired her bracelets...

Hello laundry, mountains, no ALPS of laundry.

Hello to catching up with so many things for work…one   step   at   a  time!

Hello to big news from Country Living, they’re planning a December Holiday Fair in Tarrytown, NY…will get you the details soon…

Hello to August, the summer is rushing by. Can anyone tell me how to slow it down?
