There were times this summer, when it was so hot, or so humid, that I feared it would never end! Don't get me wrong, I love my flip-flops and I miss them already. This summer definitely included some great times! But, when you live in a place with window air-conditioning only, sometimes the beginning of fall is a bit of a relief.
I did three things this weekend that mark summer's end. Doing all of these things at the same time helps me realize that fall is really beginning. I never thought this day would get here!
1. Pumpkin Soap and Lotion:
2. Tied Fleece Blanket Reappears:
My very favorite blanket is made from two layers of polar fleece that have been fringed and tied together. During those toasty summer months, I washed it and then shoved it in the closet until cooler temperatures returned. They're back! And so, out came this awesome, cuddly blanket!
3. Winter Purse:
You also might remember the work I did this summer on my tote bag with the sequined handles. It was great during the warm months because its made out of canvas. But, since I'm not really sweating when I go out running errands anymore, it's time to switch to my winter purse.
I hope that wherever you are, fall is beautiful and you are enjoying the respite from summer's heat!
