I’ve missed sharing photos from a few trips recently and I hope to get around to posting those at some belated point. But for now, I prefer to pretend I’m all caught up and skip right to the simple beauty that was this Labor Day weekend.

We stayed with my parents on my dad’s sleek and superfast sailboat. We had lovely weather, we perused artsy small towns in Puget Sound, and we kissed summer goodbye.

Though every year is different, I am generally not one to mourn the changing of the seasons. The fall beckons to me with fresh starts and changing leaves and pumpkin patches. I love the crisp of an apple and the fun of Halloween, my favorite holiday.

While I will miss the warmth like an old friend, and the travel, the adventures, the visits with family and the summer produce, I have the satisfaction of knowing that I made the most out of the summer. And that is enough.

I am ready for what comes next.
