i'm not giving in to fall just yet.

So Labor Day has come and gone, meaning that summer is moving out and fall is moving in, but I'm not ready!  Where did my summer go?  I'm not ready to give in to fall just yet. 

I still have a beach vacation to go on next month, the temps are still in the 90s, I still have white pants to wear, and my tan is nowhere near where I want it yet.  Summer hours are still in effect, I still like smelling of sunblock, and I haven't done everything I've wanted to...yet.

Secretly, I can't wait for cooler temps and the first frost because that means my allergies will go away; I can wear jeans, boots, and sweaters; it means time for bonfires and roasting marshmallows; and the beautiful changing of the leaves and colors - it sure makes a perfect time for pictures, too.

Summer is a time of positivity for me because the temps are warm, the sun shines, there are places to go and things to see, and it is the best season in my opinion.  Fall is a bit depressing.  Yes, it can be a fun and pretty time, but I know around the corner is a time of deep cold, ice, having to be cooped up in the house, being sick, and dreary, ugly weather.

So for now, I'm boycotting fall until I am ready.

I am not ready to give up on:

But, I cannot wait to for things to come:

Take me with yooooou on your beach trip ;)
This is probably the first time in my life that I've EVER been excited for the cold, dreary weather. I always love fall but dread the winter! This time? I can't WAIT! It may have something to do with the fact that I'll be having my first baby in December and I get butterflies just thinking about meeting my precious baby girl :)

Aw this makes me sad that summer is ending too! Definitely can't been a campfire and a big warm sweater, though. :) I'm a new follower from the MNB hop! I'd love a follow back at http://www.two-in-diapers.blogspot.com when you get the chance! :)

I admit, I'm kind of excited for FALL, as I've hated it until this past weekend. I hated my summer, so my fall has GOT to be better.

Either way, enjoy your trip AND...love the "I'm holding on to summer" pics.

I am not ready for fall either. I love how summer is just more relaxing. Ahhh.
