So Long Sweet Summer

It's hard to believe it's already September. It seems just like yesterday I had a 3 month old, was celebrating my 30th birthday and we were just trying to keep cool in the summer heat and humidity. 

Summer 2016 has flown by. Is anyone else with me on that one?

Summer 2016 Recap

One thing I do know for sure is that we made many great memories this summer. Before we dream of all things fall, let's take a quick look back at summer 2016:

In JUNE, I took a look back on the last decade as I said goodbye to my 20s and Morley took her first airplane ride when we ventured to Edmonton, Alberta to visit my little sister and celebrate a good friend's wedding.

Summer 2016 Recap

And technically, since summer is not officially over until the calendar hits September 22...

So far this SEPTEMBER, we started a new end of summer family tradition, taking Morley to the CNE and have enjoyed taking advantage of the somewhat cooler temperatures.  Mama and baby were starting to go a little stir crazy being cooped up inside this summer. 

Summer 2016 Recap

As much as I love the sunshine of summer, I am so happy to live in a place that experiences fall. While it means the weather is getting colder, the changing colour of the leaves makes me happy. 

So long sweet summer, bring on the fall!

How was your summer? What memories did you make?
