The temperatures are cooling off, the state fair is open, and Target has been a madhouse with kids buying back to school supplies. It can only mean one thing. The end of summer has arrived! I usually get pretty excited for fall at this point and don’t take advantage of these last days of warm weather. But when I saw the list below I decided to make it my mission to take full advantage of summer activities this weekend!
Here’s my plan:
- Sneak out early from work (shhh, don’t tell!) and take the scenic drive home with the windows down
- Read a book on a hammock
- Enjoy cocktails with friends on a patio
- Stop at the farmer’s market for flowers and food to make an al fresco dinner
- Watch the sunset and toast to the end of summer
And then it’s on to bonfires, apple orchards, fall foliage, crisp walks, pumpkin spice lattes, and sweater weather! See – there’s no need to be too sad about the end of summer!
Next week Mike and I are leaving for London and the South of France! We’ve rented a car for France so If any of you have suggestions on must-see towns to visit in Provence I’d love to hear!
