Cottage Inspiration...Words to Live By

Success is not a place at which one arrives, but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.
-Alex Noble

The boys and I took our last outing of the summer. We spent an awesome day hiking around Empire Mine in Nevada County. Monday brings the first day of school. A new school for both of them and new challenges for us all. It made today extra sweet- I think we all share a bit of anxiety about the coming school year, but that anxiety will, I hope, keep us focused on making it a great year!

Mining trash! It's okay- Mother Nature is slowly reclaiming all of it.

Handsomest miners ever

God is bigger than all of our worries!

So precious, these boys of mine

Onward and upward, Pilgrims!
Thanks again, Tracey, for letting us join you on Notes From A Cottage Industry.

  1. Wonderful quote...looks like a terrific day for you & your handsome miners :-)

  2. It's ALL about the journey anyway, right?

  3. What a great quote -- think I'll add it to my collection. And what gorgeous scenery on your walk! It's fun to get to see other parts of the country while visiting blogs. I hope your boys' first day of school goes well!

  4. What a cute picture of you three! I hope that their first day of school turned out to be good!
