Can you believe it’s August already?! We’re usually anticipating our annual pilgrimage to the Cape this month, but unfortunately not this year. I’m in full-on power mode on my summer project, my upcoming book with Vendome Press. Not a bad reason to miss out on the Cape this year.

July was the big push to shoot all our country houses (with the exception of Vermont, that’s soon to come!). Now comes the grueling task of editing. How I wish each country house could have it’s own book! (This girl can dream.)

So as this process continues, the flower gardens keep blooming, the kitchen garden keeps giving, and my boys are still home from school vacation. Yay! Life is good.

I’m keeping track of August on my desktop calendar…you can download it here, and it’s free!

Happy August!

Love, Nora
