Currently {Life in August}

A quick update on all things {currently}…

This farmhouse style office is filled to the brim with charm & character... |

Hello friends!

It’s been a while since I’ve found made the time to sit down and write a bit of real life.


There have been vacations, bike rides, piles of books (find my Summer reading list here), renovations on top of renovations, play dates, 1/2 marathons (yes more than one!), and of course, a zillion other things filling our days.

I’ve got SO much to share ya’ll, I just don’t even know where to start!

Right this minute, as you’re sitting down to read this, we’re enjoying all sorts of adventures exploring the Kootenay Mountains in British Columbia before we make our way to Whistler for even more mountain fun, and finally we’ll head to Vancouver for my second half marathon of the Summer. #wishmeluck

Summer Vacation

In between all that running, relaxing and Summer vacationing, we’ve been hard at work plotting and planning all sorts of projects around the house.

In fact (because we clearly weren’t busy enough), in a split-second decision, we decided to take on our biggest renovation yet…

Any guesses?

Our living room?

Our kitchen maybe?

Or perhaps our mudroom?

It feels absolutely insane to be writing this, but friends – we’re actually taking on all three of those spaces!

At the same time.

I mean really, with each room leading into the next, we didn’t have much of a choice.

And I could not be more excited about everything we’ve got planned!!! More details coming soon, promise!

Of course, in the mean time, we’re still plugging away at our industrial playroom space, which we hope to see finished up later this month. #fingerscrossed

Industrial Playroom Progress

Between Summer vacations, back-to-school preparations and the most massive renovation ever, I have no doubt the next few months might just be the death of me.

Oh, but it’ll be SO worth it once it’s done!

August is most definitely shaping up to be an exciting month! And now, here’s a quick update about where I am {currently}…
