It’s getting chilly here. Everyday on Izzy’s morning walk I notice more and more leaves change color. Usually, Seattle summer weather lasts through September but it’s looking like it won’t be that way this year.
Micah’s back in school, we’re back to watch College football on Saturday mornings (Go Huskies!) and the NFL throughout the day on Sunday (Go Seahawks!). We’ve both been digging out our fall/winter sweaters and I’ve got several pairs of tights all ready for wearing. I love Fall. It may be my favorite seasons. I like being able to wear a sweater without a coat and I LOVE the colors. Fall is filled with celebrations and leads up to my favorite holiday, Christmas. Having said that, I’m not ready to let go of summer. Where did it go? I swear it was just June.
I was thinking about our very short summer and thought I’d share a few greatest hits from this summer.
Happy Hour Sails
On many Fridays, we spent many happy hours on water. Our friend Paul has access to a sail boat and I swear Micah spent 5 days straight on it. Paul is a teacher too.
Izzy Joins the Family
As most of you know, Izzy joined our family in July. We love her to bits and she seems to tolerate us. We took her camping and to the beach this weekend and she seemed to enjoy it.
Izzy wasn’t too sure about the cold ocean water but clearly liked the sand part.
We had a great time visiting Cecilia in Italy and traveling with her to Croatia. We can’t wait to see her early next month. We’ve shared almost all our (good) pictures from the trip so I thought maybe I’d just post one of my favorites. We still have a food post left to do though.
Summer always brings good food. My favorite part of summer eating is that Micah spends a lot of time smoking meats and grilling.
I feel like we did more this summer but maybe we didn’t. There were some house projects we have yet to share, Micah did go to Alabama for a week and I did turn 30. What eventful things did you do this summer?
