The Long Goodbye After A Short Visit

Dear Summer,

I love you! You were very late to the party this year. Like, crazy late. Like, you didn't actually grace us with your presence until August. Remember when the weather man announced that we experienced the "coldest July in recorded history?" You don't? That's because you weren't here. But when you did show up, you were stunningly beautiful as always! You walk in the room and heads turn. Deservedly so. And now you are leaving town once again. I'm so sad to wave goodbye. Your visit was far too short this year. I know a long, hard winter is coming to town eventually. And you will be down in sunny South America. Some things in life just don't feel fair. So should you feel like a little vaca in say, February, feel free to visit Upstate NY. You are always welcome. Your room is ready. Fresh towels are rolled. Tiny monogrammed soaps in a sweet silver dish are purchased and prepared. I love you, I love you, I love you!!

Good riddance from South Texas where it was over 100 degrees for 60 days this summer! Hello fall and welcome :)

Oh, tell me about it. What, did we have 3 weeks of flip flop weather???
I love Fall,but only after a nice Summer.
anywho, Dogs are allowed in the apple orchard. We only picked for about 30 min and the Honey Crisp apples are spectacular!!
Lets plan a picnic in the orchard!!
Sundays are best for me.

Agree with KK. Summer was extra harsh in my neck of the woods this year. Extra hot and extra dry. I'm welcoming Fall with open arms and shorts. (temps in the 90's for this weekend.)

I feel your pain! Our fall already feels too cold for me. I'm just bracing myself for the frozen tundra of winter!

Okay, it's still 90 degrees here in South Florida and while I love my Lilly summer shifts, I'm ready for some cardigans, corduroy skirts, and tights.
