Last weekend was the last in August. With Labor Day this weekend we're truly down to the end of the summer now and as great as its been and as much fun as we've had, I'm ready for the end. I am so looking forward to September and October this year!
Those are always two of my favorite months and this year should be no exception, unless we have more hurricanes to deal with. But even if we see the worst, I'll still be loving the cool nights and warm days of fall. I'm already thinking about pumpkins and corn stalks and soon I'll be making soup and big pans of mac and cheese.
But we have a few weeks to get through now before summer is officially over and I'm hoping they're pleasant ones! I hope for low humidity, warm temperatures, little rain, and lots of activities to close out the season. I've done no entertaining this summer so maybe September we'll actually use the deck for a couple dinner parties. I think I need to go look at my calendar.
August is over now and the feel of autumn is already in the air and it doesn't make me sad at all.
The best is yet to come.
