Goodbye Summer

Sweet summer came and went; love was in the air, flowers everywhere....ahhh sweet summer came and went! Today, as we eagerly embrace a three day weekend to celebrate Labor Day, it is both bitter and sweet. Bitter to say goodbye to summer, goodbye to warm weather, goodbye to long days and frolicking in the sun. Sweet because Fall is my favorite of all four seasons. There is a sense of newness in the air, it is both crisp and cool, the colors of nature change from green to red, yellow and orange. What a magnificent time of year; however my heart will still miss summer.
Here are a few of my Sassy Summer favorites:
  1. Enjoying the outdoors with family and friends
  2. Frozen Cocktail's and basking in the Sun
  3. Planting Flowers/the warm essence of nature
  4. Open-toed shoes and sassy sandals
  5. BBQ's and Grilling (oh so good)
  6. Baseball...we will try again next year, Chicago Cubs.
  7. My Birthday came and went in a hot second

Now on the flip side of my list here are some things I will not miss:

  1. Mosquito's (they are fierce wear I live and wear helmets)
  2. Kids complaining they want to turn on the air conditioner
  3. Hearing the Landscapers at 7AM
  4. Humidity (I am not a fan of swollen ankles, melted make up and flat hair)

What will you be doing this Fabulous weekend??

What ever this weekend should bring, have a Happy and Safe Labor Day WEEKEND!

It's NOT okay that summer is over!!! I'm in denial, but maybe that's because I live in So Cal where it's still over 100 every day. : )

Hi from SITS!

Humidity does not make my hair flat, it actually makes me look like a big fluff ball!

I'm gonna miss summer too....It's my favorite season.

We had a terrible summer in the SF Bay Area, but now that Sept arrived we are getting our traditional Indian summer and Sept/Oct are the best months of the year!

I'll miss summer too! I'm not a morning person and I don't like the whole 'get up and get ready for school routine'

This w/e we are entertaining. Griling a lot of fish and garden veggies for friends and family!

Amanda said...

I totally agree with you! I love the warmth of summer but the bugs and humidity are cruel! I am excited for fall, all of the recipes that I love and won't feel to hot to cook. I do not like how much weight I gain from these yummy fixings but it is worth it. I am stopping by from SITS for Shareday.

It is pretty much summer here all year long. We have 2 seasons. Hot and really, really, really hot!

Have a great weekend!

JennyMac said...

What a great list. We live in Atlanta so summer is far from over here. LOL. Love your summer faves.

Amanda said...

Winter has just finished here in Perth and the Sept 1st saw the first day of Spring - my favourite season - so the warmer weather should be heading our way pretty soon!
