I know, I know. Don't hate on me! I am enjoying these glorious days of summer as much as the next guy. Or girl. But this time of year always tugs on my heart just a bit. OK. A lot. A few cooler days sprinkled among those hot and humid ones make me realize that my beloved days of September, October, and November are now closer than farther away. And that makes this pumpkin~flavored~everything lover, cozy sweater wearing, changing autumn leaves watcher VERY happy.
So. How many days until...
(IF YOU WANT TO BE TECHNICAL)
( ACCORDING TO ME~
ALSO KNOWN AS SEPTEMBER 1st?)
In the meantime...I will continue to enjoy these lovely summer days filled with sun and fun and evenings full of cookouts and deck sitting.
(Thanks Pinterest for these awesome images.)
I try really hard to enjoy this day and season but honestly FALL/AUTUMN is calling my name:) It has been SO hot and humid here where I am. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!ReplyDelete
You're so funny! But you love what you love and I think that's great. I'm not quite ready to commit to the end of summer just yet but I appreciate your spirit. (And pumpkin muffins.)ReplyDelete
Also looking forward to cooler days!ReplyDelete
Fall is my favorite season, too!!ReplyDelete
I am a pumpkin-lover and look forward to those days too! Love the colors of fall........ReplyDelete
How dare you skip August, okay I forgive I also love the Fall. But I also love the hot dry summers.ReplyDelete
I tend to seize the moment these days and enjoy all the seasons, but my favourite holiday would have to be Christmas.ReplyDelete
I am an Autumn lover too, Billie Jo. By the time late July rolls around I think I'm over the heat and humidity. But then I remember we still have a beach vacation with the whole family to enjoy before I can truly leave summer behind. In the meantime, I'm dreaming of cool, sweater days and pumpkins. ♥ReplyDelete
There's nothing like autumn!ReplyDelete
Already looking forward to September 1. It should be a national holiday to celebrate surviving the summer. LOL!ReplyDelete
I've seen a few very early leaves turning and my sedums have flowers (even though they won't have color until September). Still, it keeps me going!
I am in agreeance, fall/Autumn is the best. Hope you have a beautiful week, my friend. smilesReplyDelete
I'm an autumn lover also...maybe it has something to do wtih being born in one of those three months? Anyway, thank you for the countdown and those gorgeous pictures!ReplyDelete
Oh girl...you now have me longing for the cooler temps, pumpkin everything, and for God's amazing colors to shine! Bring it on.ReplyDelete
I cannot wait! My husband came in a few minutes ago and said we have to make some changes. He said our electric bill was over $400! It normally runs around $150! Old house, old ac units. Ugh! It's come at a time when money is very tight. Not quite sure how we'll do it, so I'll have to be creative!ReplyDelete
who loves fall and is so thankful she gets to see it this year!
Right there with you... counting down days until fall... my favorite season, hands down!! We've also had a nice break from the 90's, and I've been enjoying every minute of it! :)ReplyDelete
We don't get sweaters out until January or February down here in Florida, but a break in the heat would sure be welcome right now!!ReplyDelete
I am right there with you, Billie Jo, counting the days until fall, it is my favorite season, but like you will enjoy the summer days until then. We are getting a reprieve from the extreme heat with rain this week and I am enjoying this.ReplyDelete
I'm so with you on this! Just the sight of these pictures makes me happy!! I was in Yankee Candle the other day smelling all the Fall scents. I'm so ready!!! Pumpkin spice, here we come!!! : )ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos. I love Fall too but it is a bit bittersweet. Soon Summer will be over and Fall will be here but then Winter. It never fails :-)ReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo - I am trying to catch up in blog land. I just read about your daughter's wedding! So great! Congratulations! Yes, the summer is just about over, believe it or not. Charly and I go back to school in about two weeks, so fall is coming. Love from UT to you and your lovely family! I have missed you!ReplyDelete
I'm all set to outlaw the crazy triple digits we've been experiencing down here and bring on the cooler temps! I was just thinking about showing my boycott attitude and put up a fall flag outside. Ha! (Then Mother Nature will only laugh and say, "Hold my beer.")ReplyDelete
I love, love, love fall and all things pumpkin too!ReplyDelete
I am SO READY for fall this year! Ok, I'm always ready. It's just the happiest season of all. Also, I'm over our triple digit summer. It's been quite the heat wave, ha! ;)ReplyDelete
