I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!

My time is coming, y'all. The extended forecast has nothing in the 90's in my near future. Well, it does say 93 for Monday, but what do they know? That's a while off.. it could still change.

I know there are strange people out there that LOVE the summer time. You thrive in those summer months and don't seem to mind temperatures that rise up to the triple digits. In fact, not only do you not seem to mind it, you actually prefer it. Look, we're all entitled to our own opinions, but I'll never understand you summer lovers. Or really, I don't understand how not everyone prefers fall!

It's the most perfect day ever today! See, Andrew thinks so too.
 
Look at him there, just basking in the glory that is 70 degree weather! I'm with you babe. I'll bask in it with you. Seriously, we can go outside without dying from heat exhaustion. We can walk to the park or around post without feeling like we're going to melt into the pavement. How do people ENJOY that?? I'll never understand. That hot air just takes it all out of me. Drop it down 20 degrees and we've been outside all day... comfortably.
 
We have our windows open! Enjoying the fresh breeze! They are closed up all summer and I feel like the house gets so stale. Isn't there just something about the windows being open with a fall scented candle going that makes you just want to freshen up the whole house? It's breathing life back into these lungs, I'm telling you!
 
Football, open windows, crock pot meals, jeans, scarves, fall scents, beautiful breezes, cuddling with blankets, new TV shows, pumpkin flavored coffees (heck, pumpkin flavored everything!), the decorations, the holidays and activities, the colors. I'm in love! Move me to some place where summer doesn't really exist.. the temps don't rise above 80-85 and I'll be the happiest little mama you've ever seen!

I'm a summer lover. I get cold very easily, so I do live those hot hot days. But it's ok. I like hot tea and soup, so I appreciate your beloved fall.

While I enjoy summer, I am definitely a fall girl!! I love being able to bundle up outside and sit by the fire pit. :)

I second that emotion..I do love the first few weeks when school is over for the year!!

We are twins. I was thinking today that I wish the season of summer just didn't existed. Spring is fine, fall is FAN-freaking-tastic, and winter (if it actually happens) is a dream. Here's to a nice fall-weather birthday for you!!!

It felt wonderful at the park today. I'm a Fall person. Screw winter. ;)

I must admit that I LOVE LOVE the summer, but when that first cool breeze comes in, I seem to love that too. The fall has so many wonderful things about it! It's just that nasty season following fall that I loathe.

I didn't love summer till I moved here and experienced the wonderment that is the dry desert heat. I love summer in El Paso! But fall is definitely my favorite. Jeans and sweaters and hoodies, oh yes!
