Can you believe it’s the end of August?

Is it just me or did the end of the summer come way too quickly? I’m trying to enjoy every minute outside! I remember when I worked full-time in an office I totally reveled in my 15 minutes and lunch hour outside…vowing that if I was a stay-at-home-mom I’d always be outside enjoying the perfect Minnesota summers. We don’t have perfect weather for long but boy, is it great here in the summer! Well, normal life and small business responsibilities don’t let me tan all day…but I’m going to make time for a walk every day!

I used to make a list every summer that helped me enjoyed everything the summer offers…and I’m the kind of person that like to make lists and check things off!

Here’s some of my favorites:

-must lay in the grass at night and stare at the stars!

-must tan/freckle and read magazines…with Eva Cassidy as background music! (Check her out! All of her albums are amazing!)

-must get the family together for laughs!

-must go a picnic outing!

-must write to friends I’ve lost touch with!

-must go on vacation!

-must have a dairy queen dipped cone on a really hot day!

-must go see a late movie about a summer romance.

-must take a romantic summer walk, holding hands, and ending in a sweet good night kiss!

-must have fun with water outside!

-must take a road trip and eat lots of junk food!

What’s on your list? My advice for today…do something on your “summer to do list” before it’s too late!

Yeah, another Eva fan! Songbird is my favorite.

I know… where did the summer go! I am really excited for the change of fall that comes, the leaves turning, then drying out, then falling, then raking them, and of course….. JUMPING in them!! I know I am a grown adult, but I have always loved raking the leaves and them having a blast with the finished product.

One of the things on my list to do is…. My birthday is August 9th, and it is during State Fair time here, everyone is busy, etc. So the only thing I ask for my birthday is to get together and have a barbeque with family. I love spending time together with my brither and sister, dad, grandpa, and my brother’s mother in law (she makes a german chocolate cake, icing and all from scratch! for my birthday since my mom passed). Now with that long story, our get together in TONIGHT!! I am so excited, we had it planned for the last two Thursday nights but been rained out, and now today is just gorgeous!

Have a great day!

I am excited summer is almost over. I love fall’s blue skies, the vibrant colours of the trees, the crunching of leaves, wearing sweaters, BBQ’s outside…. it is by far my favorite season.
Fall brings change, and a different pace.

I’ve always made a summer to-do list, ever since I was a little girl. Something that was on the list for several summers and didn’t happen (has to do with having 2-yr-old twins..) was taking my husband to the drive-in movie theater in my hometown. We finally did it last weekend and had a great time! It didn’t even matter what movies were playing.
