I feel like Fall is on the horizon. The past two days have been significantly cooler, the days a little shorter and the air smells different (and no I don’t mean the “Oh today it’s pig dung instead of cow” difference either). I’m happy.
That’s not to say that we won’t have some hot days left in the year, but they aren’t the same. Even last week, when the daytime temperatures soared the evenings cooled down nicely. Summer is wrapping up, and while I know the majority of the world sulks, whines, complains and hangs on to each second of summer – I don’t.
I have a myriad of reasons for not loving summer, the heat, the clothing, the burns, the clothing, sweat, the clothing….all land under the “I don’t like it” category. Fall on the other hand still has sunny warm (not hot) days, beautiful colors on the trees, pants, no jackets/scarves/mittens/toques required and plenty of time for being outside. It’s pretty much perfect. Until winter comes but we’re not going to be negative today.
But even though I long for Fall and end of summer I do have to admit Summer comes with some pretty sweet photos. My girls and my husband love being out in the heat and the sunshine – which means I follow along, slathered in sunscreen, sneaking into the shade camera/iPhone in tow taking pictures to document the beauty hidden behind the heat wave.
It helps remind me to find the silver lining in everything.
