If you’ve been coming to my blog for a while (and if you have, you’re pretty awesome!), then you might know I have a thing for Fall. In the last few years, around the end of July or beginning of August, I’ve been rushing to get to my favorite season. Last year, towards the end of the Summer, when I had gotten a taste of Summer tomatoes for the first time, oddly enough, that’s when I realized I hadn’t appreciated Summer at all. I wasn’t present with the season until it was too late.
I’d like to say I got a little better this Summer season with enjoying it a little more in my own ways. We got the chance to go boating, saw a few fun historical sites, put my toes into the ocean, and even had some more of those summer tomatoes. If I’m being honest, I haven’t had the same strong urge (although a small one) to bring out my Fall decor (although that may happen next weekend!) or to see the trees change and watch the leaves fall.
While I am definitely a Fall girl, I’m carefully beginning to tuck Summer away, knowing I was a little more present for this one and appreciated the beauty it possesses. The leaves are beginning to change and litter the lawn, and there’s no denying that my favorite season is right around the corner.
