I'm about to say something that I know I'll get yelled at for admitting:
I'm ready for fall.
I love pool time and all that jazz- but early fall is the best! I'm kind of ready for scarves and boots and chilly fall air that smells like leaves. Yes, leaves.
Since the Midwest seasons are like clockwork, I know it's all coming soon - so here's what's good about summer lately:
#1: Okay, so the flowers ARE a pretty solid part of summer..a part that I'll miss in fall! Love this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
#2: Another thing I'll miss about summer is the fun shoes- need a vote on these pink wedges (yay or nay?)
#3: Okay, maybe I'm already talking myself out of fall coming...because now that I think about it...summer has been pretty great. This weekend we went to Pope Farms Conservancy to see the acres full of sunflowers...so. so. so. gorgeous:
#4: In other flower news, I recently stumbled across Lauren Bamford's "Locals" series. She takes local flowers and puts them in cans of local beers where she found them. Simple, but cool! See the series HERE.
#5: This week's recipe is a perfect ode to the summer Farmer's Market- we found currants a couple weekends ago and I made THE best muffins. I mean I know I'm biased, but guys, they're GOOD.
What have you been doing to enjoy the last bits of summer?
Anyone out there secretly ready for fall too?
