'Home' by Gabrielle Aplin is my theme song at the moment - have a listen while you read. 

Well, the Summer is over - the kids are back in school, the ice bucket challenge has been completed
and we're all counting down the days to pretty much every weekend ahead. 

We did do a Summer List (see earlier years here and here) and got about half of the things done. 

The summer was strange as we spent it in a rented house while we were getting major work done on our own. The most anticipated 'tick' on the Summer List was the 'Move Home' box. 
This made us all very happy!

It's been nice to re-imagine our old house and put in design details or practical elements that weren't there before. If you follow me on pinterest, you might know that I have a board where I hoard all of my chalkboard ideas. People are so clever with their spaces! 

I knew I wanted to put in a chalkboard wall - a place where the whole family could add the things of their heart - and I plan to change the theme with the seasons. 
This season, unsurprisingly, the theme is HOME.

It's not as 'designy' as the pinterest chalkboards because, let's face it, most of them are done in studios by artsy people and no kids. Ours is.. well, used. We love it. 

What about you? How was your summer?
