An Official Goodbye to Summer

This was our first summer as a family of 4, and there was a lot I wanted to squeeze into it! About half way through the season I panicked feeling like summer totally got away from us, so I paused and wrote an "end of summer bucket list" to document all the things I really wanted to accomplish by the end of the season. Here is a look back at what we got done - some amazing times were had here in the Northwest!

Get to know Abbey Co.!

As a blogger I think it is important to check in with yourself sometimes - who am I, why do I write, what do I want to write about, and so on. Since it has been a while since I have done something like this, I decided to do a little 'get to know me' post so you can learn more about what inspires my blog and the type of content I want to bring to you - my readers! I hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for following along!

Mid-Summer Check in… can’t believe July is coming to an end!

This summer is flying by at a heartbreaking rate! With a busy job and two kiddos it seems like time is flying by. My baby is already 9 months old, how is that possible?! However the good news is that we have found time for vacations with friends and some boating days on the lake, so there has been lots of fun so far. What are some of your favorite things you have done so far this summer? Click to read mine! 🙂

Abbey Co. is Back!

Let me tell you what friends... making a baby is hard work! So hard that it took all of my energy for the past year, and I had none left to give back to my blog. I am however happy to say that baby is here, healthy, and we are doing great as a family. We are doing well enough that I have got my spark back and am excited to be chipping away at my blog again!

All About the “Buy Nothing Project” – The wonderful giving community that you can join too!

Often times I think there must be a more eco-friendly way to go about life. There has to be alternatives to buying everything new, all the time, all this wasteful packaging that goes with these new purchases. I recently came across the "Buy Nothing Project", a community-focused group that encourages giving and sharing on a local basis. Read more here about the Buy Nothing Project and see if you can find one in your area - they have groups worldwide!
