Summer Girl

I'm a little bummed that August is zooming past.

I closed my eyes for a second in early May and a second later when I opened them, it was August. School is back in session and fall clothes are out in stores. What?

I am a summer girl, through and through. Always have been. Even when I got my "colors done" way back when that was cool. You guessed it. I was a "summer" hands down.

I want a flowy dress, flip flops and my hair up in a ponytail. A glass of sweet tea and a lazy day on the lake. Maybe a hammock in the late afternoon and a good book. Dinner outside, preferably something right off the grill and either cold watermelon or homemade ice cream for dessert. Maybe both.

Am I describing a vacation? I don't remember those. :) I've taken vacation days lately, sure. But they've all had a purpose and included some form of work.

But as crazy as it is right now, life is good. My first book is in stores now! I can't get over that. And my second book will be out before you know it. These are exciting times.

So please don't think I'm complaining. I'm not. I'm just trying to remind myself to take a little time to smell the roses. Before summer's a thing of the past.

Hi Annalisa! I found your blog through Christine Lynxwiler's webpage. Congratulations on your new book, I'll have to check that out. I know what you mean about the summertime. We had so much rain that I feel like it's still mid-June. My baby girl starts Kindergarten on Monday, and my son starts 4th grade. Can you say, time to write? As much as I love the summertime, I love the fall schedules too.

Hi Amy! Thanks!

I still can't quite accept that it is August! The summer sure did fly past. But you're right--fall has it's own perks. :)
