I love summer. I love burning my butt on my black leather car seats, I love feeling wet as soon as I step outside, and I love the long days of sunlight. I could live in Florida, year around. But I don’t. So I’m going to try to focus on the positives of summer ending and the realization that winter is just around the corner.
- No more need to smear white sticky sunscreen all over. When we were in Vegas a lady came up to me when I was floating on a raft in the pool and said “You’re either a runner or a biker; I can tell by your tan line.” I guess I didn’t do a very good job shmearing this year.
- Pumpkin Spice everything will start to make an appearance. I make the best little pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies. I even bought this t-shirt last year- which is on sale for $8.99 right now!!
- Boots. I have started to curate a short-boot collection after tall boots started to go by the wayside. PS I always thought that phrase was gone by the “waste side”; learn something new everyday.
- Scarves. Last year I got into the blanket scarves. Wrap one of those suckers around your neck and you’ll be sweating in no time.
Let’s be honest though, applying sunscreen isn’t so bad, I could make my pumpkin cookies anytime of the year, putting on socks after giving your toes 4 months of freedom make my feet feel claustrophobic, and I wear a scarf (at the office) and a blanket (at home) all summer long so there is really no benefits of summer coming to an end. #sorry There is always next year.
