It’s time to wrap up the highlights from August, starting with a Sunday afternoon drive in the Foothills of South Carolina. We walked through downtown Landrum and grabbed a picture on a bench in front of a perfect teal brick wall (my favorite color)!
The rest of the afternoon was enjoyed from the comfort of in-car air conditioning! 🙂 Those Carolina blue skies are just stunning, aren’t they?
Last weekend I took a quick trip to Tennessee to celebrate my sister’s birthday. I’m really thankful that I can easily travel through two states and enjoy family time – I know that’s not the case for everyone these days!
My mom made an amazing birthday meal, and everyone enjoyed the chocolate raspberry cake that Alli made for her own birthday!
The peaches have been especially good this summer. Paul and I both have enjoyed eating our share of them every week!
I enjoyed reading through Hebrews and Isaiah this month (here’s the Bible reading plan I use). Some of my favorite verses from my reading were these:
- Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. Isaiah 28:16
- So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Hebrews 6:18-19
I shared one of the August devotionals from New Morning Mercies in an IGTV video, which you can watch below.
And now…September is coming! The fourth quarter of the year is my favorite for so many reasons. Although we do not know the future, we can “have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us” (Hebrews 6:18). ❤

I didn’t realize your dad was SO tall! Or maybe you ladies are short ~ LOL!!
Beautiful! Yes that is one thing I envy the other side of the US … the ability to travel easily between states.. in CA it takes a full day of driving to reach the border! And a beautiful quote and story time from Hebrews 🙂 Happy weekend!
We definitely have that as an advantage on the Eastern coast! Thanks for stopping by!
Yummy looking cake, and I’m curious what was on the birthday menu.
She made chicken breasts stuffed with an herbed cream cheese mixture, roasted fingerling potatoes, roasted asparagus, a summer salad and angel biscuits. It was amazing! 🙂
You’ve had an eventful and exciting August (almost like a “normal” summer month of fun!) And I have enjoyed following along (and joining as I can) with all the ladies on your IG challenge this month, too! Here’s to a blessed and eventful September as well. Bring on the pumpkins:)
I totally meant to include the IG challenge as one of my highlights – I can’t believe I left that out! It has been so much fun to share our love of homemaking!
What a sweet month! I’m glad you were able to be with her sister for her birthday party. It seems like it’s harder to travel for out of town birthdays now so when we can it feels extra special. I am sure she loved having you there. Her boys are getting so big! Hope September is another good month filled with loads of happy moments.
It really does feel extra special to travel, I agree! The boys are growing up so fast – and getting sweeter and funnier every day! ❤
