bye bye summer?

The signs are everywhere. The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are oddly cooler for August (52 last week?!). Literal signs plague that back corner of Target and letters from preschools have started arriving. My summer partner-in-crime has begun laminating and organizing and this all points to one thing. And one thing only. Summer is wrapping on up. Before you know it this blog will become a Thing of Fall. On September 1st this house will be fully fallized. From then until January I'm a holiday obsessed calendar booking maniac. Unapologetically. 

We had a good run this summer. We did it all I think and then some. I shall miss you summer. Particularly...

- Fresh fruit. 
- Water parks and those fake plastic palm trees.
- Swimming pools and the smell of sunblock in the kid's hairs.
- Random ice cream runs and thunderstorms.
- Crocs. Forever and ever. 
- Fireworks.
- Freedom. Nowhere really to be and no exact time to be there. 
- Sweet corn. 
- Flip flops and pedicures. 
- David's tan lines despite my best efforts at sunblock application. 
- Flowers. Pink bright flowers. 

And the list could go on and on...

But fall? I have so many hundreds of thousands of things I look forward to about you. I'm only slightly excited.
