Goodbye, Summer.


Dear Summer,

As you know, you're my absolute favorite of all the seasons.  Your happy-go-lucky attitude is contagious, your sun kisses feel amazing, and your accessories of flowers, birds, and trees always make me smile.  I have enjoyed the many adventures and carefree activities you planned for us the past few months.  We caught your relaxed and lighthearted attitude and used it for spur of the moment searches for waterfalls, random trips to Charlotte, unplanned road trips to visit family, and lazy days by the pool. 




We can boast a record number of camping trips this summer thanks to your amazing weather and beckoning call.  We shared many nights together listening to one another while I sat on the balcony sipping my wine.




I do blame you, Summer, for my uncreative and unfocused mind of recent weeks. With so many promises of parks to explore, free music concerts to attend, ice cream to eat how could I continue creating DIY awesomeness? On one hand, I sadly bid you goodbye knowing that it will be nine long months before I can play with you again; on the other hand, I am eager to shed this carefree attitude that is not my nature and begin my list-making, deadline meeting, project finishing life again.



While I sadly wave goodbye to you, I also wave hello to the blog-o-sphere that I re-enter.

See you next year,

Kristen

What a wonderful post, I've been planning on doing a post here soon about summer coming to an end!

I also must comment that your dog is a cutie! He/she looks a lot like my dog Duke only he has a shorter coat and floppy ears!
