It hit me this morning....summer is creeping away.
I got up at 5:15 with my man (well, he got up and I think I mumbled fairly incoherently "wake me up after your shower" and slept for the next 20 minutes) and it was dark. I mean - car headlights needed dark. If you live in the Midwest - you understand the sinking feeling that hit my stomach as the six month winter blues set in.
I had a brief few moments of insanity about a week ago where I thought I was ready for fall scarf weather, but it turns out? I'm not. I want to grasp and hold on to the last few straws of summer. Run through a sprinkler, BBQ once more and find some sand to dig my toes in before it gets too cold for open toed shoes and airy dresses.
Although I can't make summer stay, and as I'm already replacing my fall/winter shoerobe (like wardrobe but for shoes!)....I will gracefully usher in the fall season.
Besides - I have a delayed honeymoon on the beach to look forward too :)
