the summer night is like a perfection of thought.


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.

What will you miss the most about summer? Did you have any summer highlights?

  2. I don't like very much summer because for me, summer is beach and fun, but it's five years that i can't go to the beach. My favorite season is autumn, halloween is coming! ;) very nice pics and and you are so beautiful, ever.
