Hanging on to summer.

A few weeks ago as I walked into our supermarket I saw a large display of Mums sitting outside.
Mums?
Already?
Those are fall flowers....
Surely it's not time for mums yet.  Didn't we just celebrate the 4th of July??
And just like that my life seemed to be flooded with signs that fall was coming.
Kids started heading back to school.
Pools started closing one by one.
My instagram feed was overloaded with pictures of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. (gross, BTW.  How do you people drink that swill??)
Fall d├ęcor slowly started pushing out the BBQ grills and patio furniture at Target.
Halloween costume catalogs are showing up in my inbox.
College football started taking over our Saturdays.
Usually by now I'm begging for some relief from the summer heat, but for the first time I'm not ready.
I'm not ready to trade in my shorts and flipflops for sweaters and boots.
I'm not ready to pull out the pumpkins and fall leaves.
I'm certainly not ready to give up my lazy weekends at the lake.
Or trade in our Saturday nights sitting by the fire, roasting mallows.
If only I could just hit pause and keep summer forever.
A girl can dream right?

I hear you lady! I am still in summer mode. It is hot as balls here. I am guessing with the changing of schedules with back to school etc, people are feeling the fall. My child is in daycare year round, so I refuse to acknowledge this shift. However I am enjoying seeing all of the cute new fall flats. I can get behind that.

I am so over Summer and ready for Fall. Unfortunately, I live in South Georgia... fall temps will not be here for a while. I completely agree with you about PSLs though. I do not know how people drink those!

Move to California! It's summer almost all year long! I mean granted I'm dealing with oppressive heat, wildfires and soon the flooding will start. But hey....it's HOT!
