.threads: those warm summer days.

can you feel it? the air at night is getting cooler. my light-weight sweaters are slowly finding a way back into my closet rotation and my tall riding boots are being dusted off. fall is just around the corner.

while i can't hide my excitement for my favourite season [at least in the clothes department!], i am determined to enjoy my last few moments amongst the sun. i simply need this last month or two of warm days to clear my head and to prepare for what's next. to prepare for what 'fall' means to me this year.

i should mention that this summer, although slow paced and really uneventful, has been one of my favourite summer's thus far. i'm sure you can guess why - it's simply because of that little darling, our jack bugg. we have spent so many enjoyable days outside doing absolutely nothing other than exploring and getting to know each other just that much better. playing, learning, laughing, a little crying, but just being in the warmth of summer and all the joys the sun can bring to a person's soul. 

so this year i have such bittersweet thoughts on fall. a time when i usually can't wait for cooler nights on the deck wrapped up in a blanket and a cup of tea watching the leaves change. 'fall' this year means so many different things...it's when i have to go back to work. it's when i have to leave my baby with someone else. it's when i have to enter the world of adults again. it's time for juggling my career and my family. it's time for yet another change. 

and while i truly think i'm okay and ready for that change, i also find myself holding onto a little more of those warm summer days. 

ps. and when you have a great dress like the lacy white beauty i'm wearing above, it makes holding onto summer just that much sweeter.

  4. Man, I wish there were hints of fall here- today we're 100 degrees.

    A lot of my friends returned this school year after maternity leaves and the first few days were tough, but most seem to be adapting to the busy schedules- there is definite hope! Daycare or at home help?

    1. 100 degrees! Sheesh! I'd probably curl up in a ball!! I am actually quite enjoying the weather we're getting right now. It's kinda perfect, although today is supposed to get to 80 degrees....not quite 100, but still!

      I'm happy to hear that your friends adjusted well. I'm so nervous, but like I said above, kinda excited too. Its with mixed emotions I guess. I'm doing my mother-in-law's most of the time, and then my girlfriend's going to watch him the days the MIL can't. Should work out well, I'm hoping.
