Yesterday Summer was kind enough to come to visit one last time, and I spent a few hours in the afternoon lounging by the pool. I even dragged the hubby out with me, and he mixed us 2 gin and tonics. The G&T was my summer drink this year, since my new SodaStream made mixing one up a breeze. I had lots of other things I should have been doing instead, but I just couldn’t resist having one last slice of the season. I know as soon as September hits, it starts to feel like fall. But I’m never quite ready to let go, so I hold on to every last bit of summer as long as I can. Here in Canada, we really treasure the warm months.
The hubby and I had a dip in the pool, knowing that with the year’s cool temperatures it would be one of our last ones. And I read a book Olivia chose as one of my summer reads. Pretty chill.
It’s already much cooler today, and I know fall is just around the corner. So before I charge full steam ahead, I thought it might be nice to recap a little. Here’s a little slice of life from our summer.
We did a lot of pool lounging. (But not enough.)
Had some of these:
And a few too many break-the-rules breakfasts.
We did a little of this:
And a little of that:
And a lot of looking at this:
Olivia closed the book on high school, and her sister made a crazy fondant cake to celebrate.
We took one Crazy Awesome Sister Road Trip to New York.
We worked on some decorating projects.
Isabel went a little overboard on the crazy nails.
And we roasted a few meals on a fire.
How about you? Are you in fall mode yet? What did you do this summer? Does it already feel like ancient history?
