Labor Day is approaching, which means pools will close, white shoes will go back in the closet and tans will fade. It’s been an odd summer for me, full of life-altering events, both good and bad. My mom’s illness was certainly the lowest of low points and because of that, I’m more than ready to send the summer of 2010 packing. Yet, summer also brought us a new home and the beginning of a new era for our daughter as she began kindergarten. So, with the bad, summer also gave us a bounty of good. It clearly illustrated the roller coaster that is life and all I can do is sit back, reflect, thank God for the results and move forward.
We now head into my favorite time of year: fall. I love the colors, the weather, the feeling of a new beginning. Football games, harvest homecomings, Keeneland, pumpkins, cider, our wedding anniversary, Halloween, sweaters and jeans. Ah, bring on the orange, gold and brown!
I hope all you have a safe, relaxing and happy Labor Day weekend full of good memories and great anticipation of what fall is to bring. Enjoy your backyard barbecues, splashing in the pool and time with family and friends. Would love to hear what you and yours are planning for this special holiday.
It's Thursday, friends. Slowly, but surely, we're going to make it!
