I, for one, love the crisper wake-ups, hot and sunny days and cooler, cozier evenings. Everything with apples and spice, the more wool the better, fires – all times of the day, so really … just everything about fall makes me quite happy. With that in mind, for me, summer is a close second (if not at the same level of love). I actually love all the seasons in their own way, but still, the autumn and summer seasons are my absolute favourites.
Tonight we are expected to get our first deep frost and while I was about to do a post about taking out the plaid + flannels, I got side-tracked looking at some pictures from summer. If you follow along here, you know that we moved to our acreage and there was a lot of excitement and buzz as we entered summer (literally the first day of summer) in our new home. Nearing our fourth month of living here with boxes still untouched(!), I can’t believe all the memories we have already made here. Fruit picking, sprinkler days + nights, ice cream hangs on the porch, getting our new cat, visiting with friends, kite-flying, fires + laughs, family times … our summer was so full of so many good things.
So, before I can plunge into the crispy leafy photos and comforts of the falling season, I needed to give summer it’s last hurrah. One more little ode, persay. If you choose to peruse the pictures down below, I’m sure you will note some of our common summer themes: food, funny faces (sometimes crying during family photos!), and our John Deere tractor – ha!
Farewell, sweet summer. It seriously was a slice.
