Today is September 1st, and for a lot of us this means fall has begun even though it hasn't officially begun on the calendar. (But really, who needs the stars and moon to align in perfect order before claiming it's fall?)
It's an unspoken that once August 31st sets and September 1st dawns, the summer decor comes down and pumpkins and apples and hay bales come out.
It might only be the first of September, but most of us have calendars that are filled to overflowing with activities and events and obligations that take us through Christmas. Fall just seems to happen that way.
I know you're eager to deflate the pool gear and put the sundresses to rest, but don't just yet. Not until you've deliberately taken time to enjoy summer one last time. Do it or else it will suddenly be November and you'll find yourself wishing for a warm, sunny day or a swim in the pool or a picnic outside... or something other than fall time.
