It's here!

This was the view from my balcony yesterday. And today it's only slightly better. Looks like fall has come, at last. Yesterday I wore jeans for the first time since... like... May, I guess. There is a cool edge in the air that is new.
And yesterday we had our first cereal soup for lunch since a long time. And it was very comforting.
As I am letting summer go, I am thinking all the great things I can do this fall. At the market I have seen the first squashes, and will buy them to make risotto for sure. Then, in a while, I'll start cooking my delicious minestrone again. And apple cakes, muffins, and galettes.

On another note, I started giving some of the sweet pears easily found at this time of the year to my little girl. She can't have enough of them! She simply adores them. I'll introduce apples to her pretty soon, I am curious if she'll appreciate their fresher, less sweet taste. But it's a pleasure to see her eat. I really hope she'll enjoy eating produce, since it's such a nature's gift to us!

I am also getting organized for my return to work next Monday. Mother in law will watch my little girl when we both are at work, and she seems pretty good with her (well, she has 2 sons, a daughter, a grandson and two granddaughters, so she should be good!).

I am done editing my closet and drawers. The idea to start wearing fall items is growing on me. Let's see if this is it, or if the heat will return...

Little outfits: gift edition.

The following are three outfits that were given to us from family friends. All are very cute, and the long pants will be very useful very soon, since evenings are becoming cooler already...

I love the Flinstones one...
All outfits from Original Marines.

Before summer ends,,,

There are exactly two weeks of summer left, and before it ends I want to...


Wear my long gipsy skirt...

...with my ethnic necklaces (this one is a present from my cousin).

 Paint my toenails in a fun color once more...

Wear my pretty sandals.

Make more sourdough bread.

 Eat my weight in summer produce.

Thanks to Elle for the inspiration!

As my poor little girl as a fever and I prefer not to go for my walk to take care of her, while she is sleeping I keep editing. Yesterday I took care of my closet and drawers, and got rid of 4-5 pieces. Today it was my necklaces collection turn. I got rid of necklaces who were too old and ruined or just not my taste anymore. The ones who passed the edit are pictured above. They are still quite a lot, but I love them and some of them have a history or are presents from other Countries.

It feels good to clean up my stuff, keeping only what I really love...

Little outfits: rock.

This onesie was a present from my brother in law. Black is a bit harsh on a baby, but I love the final effect anyway, especially paired with Winnie the Pooh socks!

Today it's September 1st, and it feels like fall here! It's rainy and cold...

We came home on Friday after a month at the beach house. Although I am happy to be home, I am already missing summer, I am not ready to let it go yet, probably because the end of summer means I have to go back to work, and will have less time to spend with my little girl.

And to chase away this little melancholy, I have decided to do a mini closet purge. I got rid of only 5 items, but sure it feels good!
