June was a month of change. We left our home, the only home I’ve known, and went to live in a strange new place. New sniffs, new places. New walks. New everything. It all felt strange.

June was also a month for sunsets. For long days and beach walks in the last light. And it was the month when πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ and I both turned a year older and wiser. This was our June.

all our things were packed away...

including πŸ™‹πŸ»β€™s office.

my old view, my perch for years.

we went to the beach with friends for my birthday...

... and we went to Gullane beach on the summer solstice, on June 21, the day before my birthday.

And we had this walk at Yellowcraig, walking along this big empty beach as the sun set.

We settled into the new place and explored some local walks.

my new view, and our own wee garden.

And we snuggled. Because being together is what makes a home.

    Oh I'm sooo in love with your dog now! 🐢 Wish I could take half as good photos of my puppies, but they just can't sit still!

  • copperline

    Thank you so much @aseachanges πŸ™πŸ» To be fair, Harris is so used to photos now but it wasn’t always so easy - when he was much younger he would just run towards me whenever he realised I was taking a photo! No he knows to wait... *just* long enough! πŸ˜…

    Harris, always makes me feel a bit sad, to see your πŸ‘©s feelings about leaving your old home.... BUT new home, new beginnings, isn't it? 😊

  • leehorbachewski

    Absolutely beautiful!

    @finknottle just spotted your message! (Sorry, blame the PA!) πŸ™‹πŸ»misses the way of life we had in our old home - not the stairs and taking us up and down them several times a day! - but being able to pop out to gym/yoga/cafΓ©s etc... working at home, πŸ™‹πŸ» always punctuated her days with popping out to do things, especially the yoga studio and gym. Both these things kept her balanced. Now she has isolated days ... which is challenging. We LOVE having a garden though... and ground floor living!

  • copperline

    @leehorbachewski thank you! The cover photo (and the solstice walk the photo was from) is a favourite from this year ✨
