The sun sets around 7:30 pm now... and will continually set one (or two) minutes earlier each day until early winter.
It was a good summer. No major trips. No major life events. Just summer-- hot days. warm nights. crazy pore cleansing humidity. the brightest sunshine-y days. beautiful sunsets. drenching thunderstorms followed by beautiful rainbows. and happy days. It was a good summer. And on this day, Labor Day, the unofficial last day of summer--- summer comes to an end. I will remember Summer 2013 as a good one. My first summer married. Our first summer in our new home. our first summer weathering the weather of life together (sounds kind of cheesy, but true). Just an all-around lovely season.
I now look forward to one of my more favorite seasons-- Autumn.. I am so excited about drinking tea again (I just. can't. during the summer months). Visiting a local farm for apple picking, hayrides and a pumpkin center piece. and crunchy leaves. I looove a good crunchy leaf.
Random side note: Remember when Facebook groups (today's equivalent is the facebook fan page) were a 'thing' around 2006/2007? Well, I had an insane love for stepping on crunchy leaves then. So I joined the facebook group "I Will Go Slightly Out of My Way to Step On a Crunchy Looking Leaf". Yea, I am kind of strange. I love Fall!
Goodbye, Summer 2013. You were sweet!
