Alas summer has ended and fall has started today. I’m a little sad. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of fall. I appreciate the feeling of starting anew (sort of second new year if you will), the changing leaves, the pumpkins, Dia de los Muertos, football games, the Head of the Charles Regatta and even that soft oversized sweater.
But oh the sweet days of summer when all seems right in the world.
Visions Memories of languid days spent on the beach, sunsets, tans and swimming, oh glorious swimming in the ocean. (The last I will miss the most.)
So just a quick tribute and farewell to my favorite season with a picture collage and quote.
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.”
~ Helen Hunt Jackson
