This week I was reading a blog post that mentioned it being “late summer.”  And all of a sudden I was like, “NOOOOOO!”  Then, “Oh my gosh, FALL!” Then back to, “But NOOOOOO!”  So I guess I’m in that August limbo between not wanting to let go of summer and being so so excited for fall.  But before I get too excited about sweaters and chai and crisp apples, I’d like to take advantage of what’s left of summer 🙂

I wanna make this Grilled Peach, Avocado & Chicken Kale Salad.

And this Santa Fe Summer BBQ Pizza.

I wanna ride my bike and buy local cold brew iced coffee in a growler.

I wanna wear skirts and dresses and crop tops that just barely show any skin because I’m not that brave 🙂

I wanna Happy Hour on patios and drink a Pimm’s Cup.  Or is that just a Southern thing?

I wanna take more evening walks and sip coffee on my front porch.

I wanna put basil on everything and have at least one pineapple make it to the grill before I get too excited and just eat it raw 🙂

I wanna be present to enjoy what’s left of summer and I just want time to slow down already.


What are you anxious to do before summer ends?

P.S. We got our marriage license this morning!!!!!
