Up and At 'Em

Much better mood this morning. Hormones are such a fascinating thing.

I start classes on Wednesday!!!!!

Never thought I'd say it but I'm ready for this summer to be over. Okay, I will probably be regretting that statement the moment the temperature drops below 80, but right now, I'm ready.

I'm ready for....

Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks.

The State Fair

The colors of Fall and the crunching of leaves

Hair that can be straightened and not fall victim to the humidity

"Autumn Leaves" Yankee Candles

I think too that one reason I'm ready to leave this summer behind is because I am not leaving the Phillips' children behind. Nope, they are coming right along with me--for Summer, for Fall, and for the start of Winter at least. I'll get to be there for their first day of school, to hear their stories, and to see their excitement. They keep me laughing and I am excited that I don't have to say any "goodbyes" at the end of this summer!

Also, having Brian in my life makes each season magical. I'm not really sure why, but maybe it's because of the different memories we make throughout the year. I don't really know how to explain it--it's just a feeling. A very good feeling.
