Rabbit Rabbit! Can you even believe that it's August already?? Probably ingrained in me from school days, August always feels like the end of the summer to me. Of course in St. Louis it pretty much stays warm until the end of September, it's definitely winding down. We've been embracing a slower lifestyle lately and I've been really enjoying it. Still, we have to squeeze every drop of goodness out of 2016 so we have a few more things to check off our summer bucket list!
Every summer we make it a priority to get to the Botanical Gardens for their Wednesday evening concerts as often as we can. They have an amazing children's garden there, and Claire has a total blast being in an area where she can run and get messy to her heart's content. We, however, really love the "sit on a picnic blanket and drink wine" aspect of the event!
Claire picked out her own outfit this evening - yes even the completely temperature inappropriate knee high socks - and we just rolled with it. It worked out in her favor, nearly everyone we passed told her how much they loved her boots, and they'd get a VERY enthusiastic "Thank you!" as a reward. I hope so much that the joy she infuses into everyone around her is neverending. Little girls are just a special kind of magic.
