Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall

September 15, 2011

And just like that, it’s fall. Wasn’t I gushing about our glorious heat wave only a few days ago? Sigh. The last couple of days have cooled dramatically and the sun is hiding behind some pesky clouds. I found myself feeling a little sad that our spontaneous September beach days have likely come to an end. But autumn is by far my favourite of the seasons…bright days, crisp nights, cozy sweaters…what’s not to love! So I won’t stay sad long but I am hoping for at least a few more evenings spent outdoors with family and friends.

I apologize, I’m a woman of few words today (juggling too many market plans in my head) so I’ll leave you with some lovely photos that speak for themselves…

This post makes me want to run out and plan a beautiful dinner with friends under the stars pronto! I love eating outside in the crisp still air of fall…..nothing quite like it. The weather of fall is total perfection.
That second picture is so neat….the wine in the ice in the middle of the tables…brilliant!
