With Labor Day around the corner and football on tv, the end of summer is near. I got to thinking about this summer, and the fact that it is coming to an end. I didn’t have many expectations for this summer because we moved, and that was my main focus at the beginning of the summer. Now that the summer is quickly coming to a close, I thought about everything I have done:
Went to Napa! We took a lovely 4 day trip to Napa and it was my first time away from my baby.
Went to Cleveland- we celebrated my bother and his fiancée at their wedding shower.
Moved- we moved out of our home in Chicago and headed for the burbs
Sold our home and bought a new one
Sold our car and bought a new one
Went to Cape Cod
Ate plenty of ice cream
I thought about making and end of summer bucket list but the only thing I want to do is just make sure we take at least one walk outside every day until it gets too cold. So that is my only goal! Pretty easy! And to keep the windows open and the air conditioning off as much as possible. Once the weather turns cool we are cooped up inside for so many months so I want to enjoy the fresh air!
I can’t wait for fall! Fall is my favorite time of year. As a teacher, it was a time of new beginnings. This year I’m not teaching but it is still my favorite time. I love the air getting cool and the leaves turning colors. I love everything pumpkin- pumpkin decor, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin picking, and pumpkin candles. I love my birthday and Halloween which both fall at the end of October. I love wearing sweaters and scarves. I can’t wait to show my baby the leaves and dress him up in a Halloween costume. This year we will also move into our new home which is currently being renovated, so it will be a busy and exciting time!
