I know that you still have at least another month to go but I need to talk to you about something.
Please go away. I’m over you. In Texas, it remains unbearably hot all throughout August and September is toasty too but I’m asking you to please stop.
My family has had a great summer and we are grateful for your bright, sunny days and occasional bit of rain. It hasn’t been TOO hot this year so thanks for that. We have enjoyed swimming every weekend, getting tans, eating snow cones, and even making a week-long trip to the beach. We truly had a fun-filled summer. We even used our grill! Seriously, it’s been great.
Now I’m asking you to kindly step aside and let autumn come on down. I’m tired of wearing shorts (leggings are way too hot) and tank tops. Trendy sandals are not comfortable and make my arches hurt. I want to wear boots again. And sweaters. Not to mention how stinkin’ cute my toddler looks in a sweater dress and tights. Don’t you want us to be precious again? She’s always cute but me? I look much better in cooler weather gear. Bathing suits and I aren’t exactly besties (although having an excuse to have a gut this summer has been nice). You know who loves me? Warm, orangey tones. And black. I miss wearing black.
Anyway, I’m not saying that I want the clock to fast-forward to October. What I AM saying is this: take it down a notch. In my family we don’t have a school schedule dictating when summer is officially over so it’s up to you.
