Goodbye, summer.

Untitled

The first day of fall is tomorrow, and while we'll be enjoying a beautiful Indian summer this weekend, before long the cut-off shorts I've worn nearly every day since the temps hit 80 will be tossed in the back of my closet for their winter slumber. (Yes, tossed. I'm organizationally challenged.) We'll swap our bottles of Oberon for chocolaty stouts, get serious about using the oven again, and say so long to the lazy days spent in hammocks and lawn chairs, or rooting for treasure in our comically over-run garden bed.

Here are a few photos from the past few months. Spoiler: there will be many instagram pictures of dogs and food (mostly frozen treats). I basically spent three months eating popsicles, petting dogs, and taking pictures of my shoes. I'm OK with that.

Holy Grale. Church converted into a brew pub. The choir loft is so cozy and the patio is chill.

At the beginning of summer, I make one pair of cut-offs, and wear them every day I don't wear dresses.

Ate my weight in paletas. It's never enough.

Sometimes people have babies, and then they let us hold them. It's pretty cool.

    1. Thanks, Lisa!
      As for Harold, I'm afraid that's just the behind-the-scenes reality here at Whirly Bird. He's quite the hump machine.

  3. lol That is quite the photobomb in the first picture. XD

    Love the pictures! Harold is so cute and content. Y'all look like you've had a wonderful summer.

    Every time I get your blog posts in my inbox, I take a moment to read them. I love the way you write, your pictures and of course Harold. <3

  4. I've been trying to convince Lachlan to let me cut up his jeans into shorts for weeks but he won't let me. It is nearly impossible to find denim shorts that actually cover your butt!!

    Looks like an awesome summer. While you're getting ready to wear sweaters and sit by fires, I'm getting the sandals and swimwear out of storage :)

    1. It's true. Denim shorts found in the stores are usually very questionable. I've noticed that they've started to call shorts of a proper length "midi" shorts. Confused.

      Anyway, happy spring!
