That quote by Sarah Helen Whitman pretty much sums up this time of year. The days of laying out in the sun, listening to the giggles of kids splashing thru the water, and enjoying the nice mid afternoon cocktail to cool down in the hot summer sun have been put behind us.
While the fall season comes in as a close second to summer, I do love the scents, colors and fun outdoor activities that it brings with it. Not to mention I am a fall baby. Definitely an added bonus to this time of year. My birthday countdown always starts weeks before the big day. Who doesn’t love celebrating with family and friends? Receiving gifts in cute packages from some of the greatest friends isn’t too shabby either. Anyways, let the countdown begin!
School has started and this year all of the littles are there all day. I have not spent this much time by myself since the summer I was in the hospital. That is a story for another time. My to do list is getting crossed off faster than it ever has and I have time to have coffee or lunch with friends. It is a sad end to that phase of my life with a little tag-along constantly at my side, but I am excited for what this phase is going to bring.
