With Labor Day weekend less than a week away, and being back to school for nearly a month now, I feel like I can call our summer over. #allthetears 😥
Summer is my jam. I love it more than any other season, even more than the one magical month that is Christmas. I never used to feel this way. Honestly, I spent most of my adult years despising summer. It wasn’t until I had “older” kids that I realized just how amazing it is. It’s a break from life, a break from text books, a break from monotony. It’s long days at the pool, tan lines, books read, late night ice cream, and abundant sunshine.
Life is better in the summer!
But every good thing comes to an end and today I am calling the summer of 2017 a wrap.
