Saying Good-bye to Summer...

"Let me enjoy this late-summer day of my heart... while the leaves are still green and I won't look so close as to see that first tint of pale yellow slowly creep in. I will cease endless running and then look to the sky... ask the sun to embrace me and then hope she won't tell of tomorrows less long than today. Let me spend just this time in the slow-cooling glow of warm afternoon light..." ~ John Bohrn

I really can't believe that it's already September and that the kids are back to school...this summer went by incredibly fast! The past couple of days it has started to feel like fall, with the crisp cool air and the deep blue skies. I think the thing that I'll miss most about summer is it's simplicity...laying on the beach, listening to the waves & watching the seagulls flying by across the sky.

It's time to say good-bye to...

walks on the beach
the smell of sunscreen & chlorine
yummy BLT's made with my mom's fresh tomatoes
flip-flops & sandy feet
trips to the roadside stands to buy peaches & blueberries
the gorgeous summer sunsets
bathing suits & beach towels

It's time to say hello to...

alarm clocks & schedules
back to school shopping
hot bowls of soup
sweaters & jeans
new episodes of our favorite tv shows
crisp red apples
shorter days & longer nights

What will you miss most about summer? What are you looking forward to this fall?
