Bye-Bye Summer

Yes, of course the summer sped by.
It gets faster every year, right?

But, at the same time, I feel like I got to enjoy A LOT of summer weather this year. We missed out on the lousy early summer in BC and enjoyed hot sunny temps in Manitoba almost every day, not to mention our scorching week in Mexico back in June. And when we returned to Abbotsford, summer seemed to follow us here. We've had those warm, warm September temps that seem to be the pattern around these parts...




The hot days make for perfectly warm evenings. Evenings that are great for biking down our quiet street where we get our fill of farm animals to see (and smell): sheep, cows, horses, and even llamas.


And warm evenings that are also perfect for family get-togethers...



Including birthday celebrations.


But the last couple of mornings we've awakened to that fall crispness in the air. And I gotta say... I love it.


Makes me get excited for jeans and sweaters and hot soup and pumpkin spice lattes...



And watching the trees change into their autumn attire...


So, with that said...
Bye-bye summer.
And hello fall.

The fleeting warm days are really lovely. But, you're right - fall us SO beautiful! Too bad winter lasted so long here in Alberta. At least you BCers have spring to look forward to at it's proper March time!

I'm with you on all of that - LOVE the fall season! And it lasts longer out HERE then it did in S'toon...so I enjoy that. Can't wait for the humidity to leave, and the crispness to come!!!
