coming to an end.

It is always so sad to know you are in the final days of Summer. I think of all the things I am going to miss and wish I could have them just a little longer.

Farmers markets full of fresh fruit and veggies, my weekend outings for Garage Sales and great Estate sale finds, the sound and smell of grass being mowed, growing flowers, soaked beach towels hanging in my bathroom to dry, and kiddo's with sweet little brown skinned backs and white bottoms.

We have had such an amazing summer.... but fall is just around the corner and it has it's many joys as well. Just not quite ready to send my husband back to work and Ellie and Connor to school. And definitely not ready for the cold yet!!!

I am totally with you! Happy and sad about fall. I love the fall and the upcoming holidays, I just hate the lingering winter and cold spring! I am happy and sad about school starting. I am not ready for the crazy schedules to begin. Can't wait to see if I won anything from your giveaway!
