August Overview

August flew by in the blink of an eye and somehow it is already September 2nd. I cannot believe that fall is nearly upon us and that we are in full swing of harvesting the garden. Where did the summer go? And why didn't I blog more? I actually use my blog as a resource for myself quite regularly and I'm sad that I missed a whole summer of sharing life. I guess I was just too busy.

I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of what our August looked like and then hopefully I can start September fresh and actually get around to posting more.

Basically, August was wedding month. Lots and lots of wedding stuff happened in August, starting with an awesome bachelorette!

We had the party at my family's cabin in the woods and it was tons of fun.

Once the bachelorette was over, we got right to work with final wedding prep! I was basically the best maid of honour ever and helped Cora with everything.

The wedding went absolutely beautifully and we had gorgeous weather and Cora looked fabulous and everything was so full of love and fun. It was one of the best weddings I've ever been to.

After all the wedding festivities, Dan and I returned home and I got to work on all the beans that were waiting for me!

The beans were just the beginning of it, since I then moved on to making crab apple jelly. For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you'll know all about that saga.

I'm taking a small break from canning during this heat wave but will need to get back at it next week. I have beets that need to be pickled and I hope to find cucumbers from a friend that I can steal for dill pickles. Busy busy!


  1. Impressive amount of beans Jennie!!
