Summer Wrap-Up

It’s been a long while since my last post. Summer kept me busy:

I think that’s about all I have for now. Summer was also lots of relaxing, bike riding, donut-eating, cooking, canning, baking, and spending time with Tim. Fall is my favorite time of year though, so expect a bit more of a post commitment this season!

  1. hooray for all the awesome that was summer, Amy! i super love the pictures of you and Tim, and picture of you and your dad, too! such happyfaces! w00t!

    picking huckleberries & apples, canning all kinds of yummies, and sammie eating sounds like one fine way to spend a summer. especially when you throw in camping ‘n hiking, food in bowls (yay!) ‘n veg fest, and protesting (that rocks so hard) ‘n donut-eating. what a summer full of glorious times, tasty eats, and fun activities, fo ‘sho!

    fall is also my favorite season – and i cannot wait to read more of your posts & oh ‘n ahhhhh over the awesome pictures!

  2. Your backpacking trips look amazing! I’ve been wanting to hit up the PCT for awhile now, but the AT is keeping me busy close to home. Amazing eats and a beautiful sounding summer!
