As we near the end of September, everyone is getting so excited about Fall! I understand the appeal. The cozy clothes, the holidays, and the changing leaves are great things.
I do like most aspects of Fall, but I find myself wishing back those hot, lazy, summer days. Some of my favorite memories over the summer were made poolside with our friends. Exactly one month ago, we were doing just that.
We were cooling off in the pool on a hot summer evening.
We were laughing with family and friends.
We were sharing the experience with our best friends.
We were venturing into the deep end with a brave friend.
We were relaxing on rafts in the water.
We were enjoying the freedom of summer.
We were smiling and feeling content.
We were sharing food.
We were enjoying a night swim after eating dinner together.
We were stealing kisses.
We were goofing off with some of the people we love most.
We were gazing up at the stars.
We were jumping on a trampoline at night, and we were thinking it was the coolest thing ever.
We were stuffing cookies into our mouths and hugging our friends.
We were falling asleep under the stars.
As the temperature drops, I find myself longing for that carefree day.
It was a GOOD day. It was a GREAT summer.
