As I stand here in the early hours, before the sky fully wakes, there is a profound stillness. The dim headlamp on a skiff returning from a morning of fishing in Spicer Bay, barely discernible through the tall marsh grasses, and the rhythmic wing flaps of a lone Canada goose flying low overhead, are the only interruptions.

It’s my favorite time of day. The air is cool(er). The constant winds have yet to kick up. And the clouds. The clouds. If you follow my IG feed you know that our morning skies are rarely dull.

September is finally here, which means Autumn is just around the next corner… Can you believe it? Already planning our Thanksgiving menu in my mind + adding to a running (now very long) Keep list of every autumnally-appropriate recipe I want to enjoy this year. Simple pleasures.

Thunder is lazily grumbling now, and I can just make out a misty curtain in the distance. But I think a few more minutes in my sit spot before the rain catches up. Here’s wishing each of you a happy, safe + dry Labor Day, and don’t miss the latest link + updates awesomeness below!

Cheers, Heather
