Happy Saturday! Isn't there something extra-amazing about Saturdays in the summertime?
It has been such a pleasure reading the responses to the survey I posted Thursday. Your input and comments have been so helpful, and I look forward to reading more as they come in! One of the biggest requests I've gotten is for more personal-themed posts, specifically with pictures Robbie and I have taken. So I decided that Saturday Morning Daydreams, my weekly "themed" inspiration post, will become more of a monthly or twice-monthly series from now on. On the weekends that I don't post SMD, I'll focus on more personal posts - starting today!
On this lovely Saturday morning, I thought it would be fun to share some photos that we snapped yesterday as part of what I like to refer to as my "everlasting summer" project. As many of you know, I'm a summer girl through and through, and winters here in Chicago are borderline painful. So for the past two years, I've taken an hour or two every couple of weeks in the summertime to explore nature (as much as I can living in a concrete jungle) and take random photos of images that strike me along the way. When winter takes over, and I start to feel uninspired or perma-trapped in the bitter cold and gray skies, these picture become my mini getaway, and serve as a sweet reminder that the green and sunshine will, eventually, return!
I realized while posting these images that I haven't taken nearly as many of my "everlasting summer" photos this year as last. With summer in its final chapter, I'm thinking I better try to squeeze in as many as I can in the coming weeks!
As for the survey, I'm going to leave it up for a few more days, then take a day or two to soak in all the responses. After that, I'll post about new features and any changes we'll be making here at Bubby and Bean. (Don't worry; any changes will be minor. Bubby and Bean has always been and will remain a creative inspiration blog!) If you haven't yet taken the quick 10-question survey and would like to contribute your feedback, just click here. Many thanks!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of inspiration and summertime adventures...
