August 2018 Review & Favourites

How is it back to school time already! Even though I'm not a student and don't have any kids heading back to school, September still always feels like a fresh start. It was a busy August, and I have to admit that the summer kind of passed me by this year. I sadly realized this weekend that I haven’t been swimming even once! Hopefully we'll get a few more weeks of summery weather, but I'm also a little excited for all the fall things (and Halloween - the most wonderful time of the year!).
