When August is about half way through, I have to admit I get giddy that fall will begin. However, looking back on this summer I can't help but smile and realize that I have had a lot of wonderful times and memories this time around and before I am ready to move on into my favorite season; I want to take a moment to look back on all the fun. Summer concerts, the fair, coffee dates with friends, weekend trips, the 4th of July, trying new food, long walks with my husband, facetime dates with my family and lots of pictures of my niece on my daily text messages from my sister in law. Overall, I'd say this was a killer summer!
Bill and I had lots of weekend trips: San Diego, Las Vegas, Visalia, Los Olivos and Baltimore. Every trip was met with much anticipation, and every trip delivered. I wouldn't trade one memory, and I am so thankful for all the opportunities I was given and for the deepened bonds of friendship and family :) It was in the small moments of reading in the morning light, soaking in some sunshine, walking with my mom when she came to visit, seeing my husband smile while his favorite band played on a perfect summer evening and stumbling around Vegas with our best friends that I found the most joy. It's the little things friends... Each of these pictures represents a sweet memory of a small thing that made me smile.
Having just a few more weeks of summer left makes me want to soak up BBQ weather and beautiful summer evenings.
Cheers to finishing the summer strong!
