weekend+notes | 8.4.23

The month of August tends to present itself as a bittersweet moment. It marks the final stage of summer to hold closely yet a pivotal time of planning and preparing for fall + the upcoming holiday season at the shop - a transition of squeezing every last drop of bright sunshine while simultaneously gearing up for a rush of important sequenced events.

There is a degree of looking forward to cooler temperatures with the unforgiving and relentless heat many are experiencing in the States and in the south of Europe this year. The weather in Sweden called for extra layers with windy and rainy conditions and it felt as if autumn hung in the air waiting to permanently drop in unexpectedly in July. Piles of thick blankets in baskets and neatly folded over outdoor café chairs signaled change is around the corner and a reminder that with a little cozy adjustment, a small challenge can be easily overcome to continue enjoying the weeks ahead.

Have a wonderful weekend.
