So long

Goodbye to dear August. Soon you will leave us for yet another year. 



On thursday our children will return to school. And I will return to work. It somehow makes me sad nevertheless. Even with the weather staying quite beautiful here in the South of France for quite some time still. I will miss the colours. Time does go by too quickly. 

So long, Summer. You have been wonderful!


  1. Anna:
    Your piece of the world is a beautiful place, indeed. Thank you for a glimpse into the south of
    France. Truly lovely.

  2. Oh...! How can I undertand you! I'm feeleing the same since few days... only two days again and then the summer has finished for me... I'm thinking about how can I say good bye to summer... so I thought of a game. What will you regret about your summer? And what are the reason for a happy coming of the fall?
    I'll miss:
    1)swimming every day
    2)No job's problem
    4)Stitching all day
    5) Have time to spent with friends and barbeque
    6) Have time to love my husband
    But I'm happy because:
    1) I love fall's meal, for example Polenta & mushrooms!
    2) I miss my students: some of them are so funny or sweet!
    3) Have interesting discussion with my collegues
    4) Plan a beautifull holydays on december with some frineds I don't meet since one year
    5) Plan a lot of Cristhmass country&craft gifts
    6) No more muggy wear
    7) Dream of next holydays in some new country
    and so on...
    Come on! Play with me at Polyanna's game! :-)What are your reasons?

  3. oh Anna, I love this first photo of you & R ! how beautiful ! Yes, August is soon gone, and school is soon back, but we're not far apart, the sun & the heat is here to stay for a while longer :)
    sending you big hugs & kisses

  4. We'll so miss sumer indeed! But fall is not too bad either :-) It will be soon time for good comfort food and Halloween!

  5. Such beautiful photos. This is bitter sweet. I am so sad by the going of sad. I'm trying, really trying, to welcome fall,'s not happening for me....yet.

  6. stunning have a beautiful family.
    our girls start school next week.
    back to work...back to school...back to waking up at 6am!

  7. I know exactly what you mean about summer being long gone..........I to love summer! I don't even have children at home any more. When I did I was never ready for school to start.

  8. you live in such a beautiful place Anna <3 such an inspiring enviroment. The place in the photo reminds me of one of my dearest movies 'Le Renard et l'enfant', maybe you have seen it?

  9. I will miss summer too :-( I will now look forward to hearing the birdies singing in the spring again :-)

  10. A life in nature, it must be great for you and your family. You will feel the change in season too, soon or maybe in an overnight after a big storm when leaves vanish. It has been a good summer, but too short for me this time. No feelings of autumn yet, though outside it is cold and rainy.

    Happy week!
