There is just something about Fall that gets me excited about crafts and activities! This time of year I love taking walks and soaking in the crisp air and beautiful sights. My daughter found it hard to wait for Halloween though. Watch my video for some easy inspiration for Fall activities for your little one!

Staying Cool In The Heat
Here in the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing an unusually hot summer. Temperatures around 115 degrees Fahrenheit have never before been seen in Oregon and Washington until now. Those lucky enough to have central AC were desperately trying to keep their units going while most didn't have cooling systems at all. The summer heat can be uncomfortable but also very dangerous. It's important to do anything you can to stay cool during these sweltering days. You have come to the right place!
Quick DIY Garden Boxes
We decided to build our own garden boxes on our back patio! It's beautiful, conveniently located outside the door of my kitchen and took only a few hours to build.
