missing it before it's over

July is rolling into August, and I have no idea where the summer has gone. Part of me has desperately been trying to hold onto it, wondering how so much time has passed and how I will ever manage to make the most of the next four busy weeks. And how will I ever live without cherries?!


But then yesterday came along, and when J and I came home from the movies soaking wet, I changed into jeans and boots, and it just felt so right. (It's definitely been months since I've worn anything past the calf.) We ventured back out into the rain again for the Best Meal I've Had in I Don't Know How Long to celebrate J's recent success. We'll be going back so I can snap some pics for you...but in the meantime, it remains our hidden gem. ;-) When we got home, we cozied up with some tea and then had one of the most satisfying sleeps we've had in a long time. It was something about the cool rain, I think...

Take your time, Autumn, but when you arrive, I'll welcome you.

This weekend my parents and brother are coming to town, and I could not be more excited. They're just in time for cherries.


Do tell me if there's anything I must do before August comes to a close. But otherwise, I'll be sitting back with a glass of iced tea and eating as many cherries as I can...

  1. Come to the Cape! I live here now and I love everything about it... well, the Cape is also really nice during Fall so you can come whenever you want :)

  2. Oh your cherries are so lovely. As much as I too love autumn (especially up here) I am so nervous I haven't taken full advantage of summer! And it is flying by like crazy isn't it??

  4. 1. Congrats to J on his his defense!

    2. I feel like I never really settle into summer until August. Now that it's almost here, I feel like spending time reading novels and eating blueberries, peaches and cherries is really the only way to go. (Iced tea sounds pretty wonderful, too.)

  5. I have been eating pounds and pounds of cherries like it's going out of style as well. I'll definitely miss them when they're gone. This summer is flying by too quickly!

  6. Cherries!! You've just made me realize I haven't had enough of them this summer. I need to fix that, I think.

    If only they weren't so expensive. Do you know of a place that sells them on the cheep?

    2. Mackenzie, Haymarket is a great idea! I also found cheap ones at a little Russian bazaar by us...it's sometimes worth it to just check the local markets. But mostly I just cough up the dough. =)
