Looking Back at August

September! You're here at last. And with you, fall is just around the corner! As excited as I am to look forward, let's take a look back at August, because guys? It was a great month!
Early in the month, my mom and I took a trip to Carnation to go Blueberry Picking! It ended up being a super wet day, but was a total blast! The trip led to me eating blueberries by the handful, making Blueberry Peach Crisp, and whipping up some Blueberry Limeade!
I celebrated a year of having these two goofballs, Buddy and Hank, living in my house. They're seriously the best and make me smile every day. I'm so glad I have these two little critters!
I put together some fun DIY projects, including my first real stab at jewelry making with a Wire Word Necklace. I also worked on some Painted Cork Coasters, which started out a mess, but ended up pretttttty cute.
Two of the most amazing people I know got married, which led to a reunion of sorts with some of the most amazing women I've ever met. I still get all teary-eyed every time I look at the pictures. It was a weekend SO full of love!
I kept up on my canning with some delicious Salsa Verde and some Pickled Okra...
...And I worked on a project with my amazing cousin over at Imagine Joy, to put together these cute, printable labels for all those canned goods!
I turned 26, and celebrated my birthday with a day at the fair with my family, which was a total blast!
And I once again made it through a month wearing stripes in nearly EVERY outfit post! You can see my love of stripes here, here, and here. Hopefully when fall comes along I'll branch out into plaids, or something. Cool it with the stripes, Becca!

August was also my first full month offering sponsorship through my blog, which led to a couple of really fun giveaways and great new relationships with different bloggers and businesses! If you're interested in sponsoring Ladyface Blog in September, check out my Sponsor Page for more information.

Thank you so much for following along with me in August, and I'm looking forward to sharing more in September, as well as in the months to come!

Til next time!
