Almost Time

Aris Labor Day Weekend

There is a chill in the air. The kind of chill that leaves a longing in your heart. It fills my mind with memories of my childhood. Walking to the bus stop in crisp new jeans & a favorite T-shirt. Backpack & yellow pencils. The smell of manila drawing paper. The whole school year ahead. Life so new & unexpected. New friends & old. Costumes right around the corner with the promise of scrumptious family suppers. Tucked into a warm & cozy home while chilly rain storms come down. The wish to stay under colorful piles of blankets for just a few more minutes. A small goodbye to the hot sticky days of heat. A welcomed reprieve. Marvelous summer we will fondly say farewell. It's almost autumns turn to dazzle us with her colors & fill our hearts with her memories.

Lovely post, Summer. We are still very much in the 'throws' of your namesake with just a small hint of something around the corner! Enjoy!
