last summer escape? maybe.

School starts in ten days. The pool water is getting cooler. I think my summer of many escape-trips is coming to an end.

It’s hard to believe I used to hate summer. Spring is my favorite, but summer comes in second. And just in case you were wondering—winter is third and fall is the worst. I used to love fall but I don’t know why. It’s depressing as fuck. Days get shorter. Everything is darker and colder and dying. It’s the opposite of spring… the opposite of happy.

I’ll save all the other things that suck about fall for another post. For now, I’ll leave you with a few [less than exciting] pictures from my [maybe] last summer ‘trip‘.



p.s. – I hate this post.

    I like this post!! We are about 16 days away from school right now if I’ve counted correctly in my head. I love pictures of your mom’s backyard. She always has the most beautiful flowers!

  3. I used to love fall when I was in school. It always seemed like a new beginning and I just loved getting new pens and spiral notebooks and folders! Now I’m just sad to see summer end knowing that the cold is coming. And I wonder why I always wanted a new beginning?

    Fall is my favorite season, but I don’t like what’s coming next. 🙃 In Toronto, cold and icky without snow is the worst. That’s November. Gross month.

    But September and October are my favorite!

    I always dreaded fall because school started. I was the nervous little kid that threw up every first day of school. Right on through high school – no joke. Wah wah… Now I like fall because I prefer the cooler weather and the clothes. And I will not miss sweating! I will miss the pool, however. The flowers are beautiful! I think I’d miss your mom’s backyard oasis, too!

    • I loved school. Total nerd, I guess. I do like cooler weather… but I much prefer those first days of spring when it gets warm enough to skip the winter coats and scarves and such. Probably not much difference in temperature from fall… but in spring, things are growing and blooming. Fall just gets darker and deader… it makes me very depressed. Like, more than usual.

    You made me laugh. Twice. I love this post. The images are beautiful, especially the bright yellow flowers. As for autumn, I LOVE IT! The cooler temps, the brilliant colors of fall, sweaters, and boots. Winter, I can do without. And the only thing I like about summer is summer break. LOL! Far too hot!
