august goes out how it came in

 photos from our photo shoot last night at Treft.Punkt
had a great time with the entire creative team and yum dinner afterwards at Bernie's.

Today is the last day of August, and it's been pouring rain all day. After such an unusally warm June and July, the rain in August has been a welcomed change. I love rainy weather, it's so cozy and inspiring. There's just something so calming about looking outside and seeing the rain falling steadily down. 

sleepy head on the potty after just waking up
I can't resist taking these kinds of pictures!

After a lazy morning, we zipped on our rain jackets and went out into the rain for a walk before lunch. Everything felt so green and alive, and the sound of the rain falling on the trees was a soothing balm on my somewhat-frazzled soul. Just what I needed after a long, hard week. 

this happened on the walk too.
and he just laid there for a moment
and then looked up at me and said, "uh-oh."
such a silly one, my Riggs.

after the fall we headed home to trade our
wet clothes for warm, soft cozy ones
and to eat soup and cinnamon toast

Now we just wait for Steve to get home so we can start our real weekend with him.
We're excited to have him home for two whole days!

Anybody have any fun Labor Day plans? Our plan is to get lots of projects done around the house, wish us luck!


  1. Sounds like a perfect day :) good luck! <3

  2. We love rain walks too! Love the pic of him laying on the ground, so much character!

  3. Did you get your projects done?! We went to Cannon Beach Idaho with Chris' family. Over all it was a good trip bit it did have it's moments. :)

  4. uh. you look AWESOME. in that top photo.

    and holy moley. every picture of Riggs in this photo just kills me. He is so stinking adorable. I'm serious. The potty picture had my heart until I saw the one "uh oh" picture.

    I'm his biggest fan. in the least creepiest way possible. <3 You guys are too sweet.
