Wow, it's September. Somehow this month snuck up on me even faster than usual. There's something about the beginning of September that always makes me a little sad. Summer is clinging to its last days and fall is approaching...fast.
I think I find fall especially difficult, because summer always feels a little more carefree. Even though I spent this summer working (for the most part. I did manage to have a lot of fun days, too!) - it seems easier to make plans, go do fun activities, and generally enjoy life a little bit more. Once fall hits, it always feels like a major dose of reality. There are less fun days out to distract from the constant workload and pressure.
That's probably why I'm always a little hesitant about fall. I want to be excited, but outside of gorgeous fall fashion, there's a whole lot less to look forward to. Sigh. I suppose this post is a little less optimistic as I hoped! It's just a little sad when those beautiful summer days and perfect summer evenings come to a close.
On a more positive note, I have some truly wonderful memories from this summer. Some of my highlights are going on random rollerblading treks with my boyfriend and celebrating our year and a half anniversary together.
In one last-ditch celebration of summer, here is a collage with some of my favourite pictures from the season.
There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
