Well, it’s September already. I can hardly believe it.
Usually by this time of year I’m clamoring for apples & nutmeg, baking everything with pumpkin that can possibly be pumpkiny, getting pumped up for another season of Cougar football, and eyeing my favorite jeans & boots & cardigans, but somehow this week I’ve just been clinging to summer. I wasn’t even that excited to see that Starbucks has pumpkin spice lattes now. And pumpkin spice lattes are one of my favorites.
I guess I’m just still soaking in every bit of sun I can. I guess I’m just still holding onto these months sweetened by having a newborn back in the house. I guess I’m just still enjoying piling the kids in the stroller to go on a walk as a family or with friends. I guess I’m just still loving playdates at the park. I guess I’m just still savoring the early mornings and late evenings that are light enough to squeeze in a run.
It’s been warm enough where I am to still call it summer. And it’ll definitely be cold enough where I am to call it fall & winter when the time comes.
So for now, I’m letting summer linger. In my mind, in my heart, and in my running shoes. Maybe this afternoon I’ll even run through the sprinklers.
What about you? Are you ready for fall??
