Calm Before the Storm

Going away for the weekend. Our last hurrah of summer, before the fall begins. I love fall. I love the changing of the leaves, the cooler, brisk air. But as I have gotten older, I have found the summer tugging at me. And I wish for longer summers, endless vacations, relaxation. And then its over. And I am left feeling bittersweet.

When we get back from our Labor Day weekend at the beach, it will be back to work, back to school. Already starting to plan our annual Halloween Party...looking towards the holidays and gift buying/giving. I look forward to all of those things and more.

But this weekend is a time to look back, one last time, to this summer.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

I have always strongly disliked the summer, but I have to agree with you.... as I get older, there is something that is tugging at me. Maybe it's the fun with the kids, maybe the family time...
Have a wonderful weekend!
