Goodbye Summer

I’m not going to lie, when it came down to my last day of summer before heading back to work I wanted to cry. It doesn’t help that I went back to work 5 days before Sky started school. I wanted those last 5 days with her to soak up all the Sky time I could.

Cheers to Summer!

But, real life…bills…savings you know. The job has a purpose, so back to school I went.

Mark had the best idea to make the most of that last evening of freedom though…Hydro Flasks full of wine, and an evening playing on the beach in the sun.

Sky managed to make a friend to play with and we got to settle in and relax.

Peace out Summer…on to Fall, or what I call Football Season!

Making The Most Of It

Summer officially ends tomorrow! What, what?!

Thankfully this can be one of the loveliest times in the PNW. We get sunny warm days, cooler evenings, the leaves are vibrant oranges and reds, and Football. It all comes back to football. 🙂

Triker Chick.

Truly a lovely time to savor and make the most of before rain and cold settle in for the duration.

I want to be a flower girl mommy. Love how she rocks a sweat band!

Sky and I took her trike to Chambers Bay to work off some energy and take in the view. It’s beautiful there no matter the weather really. Bright and sunny, or dark and stormy both offer pretty amazing views.

Those glasses and that sweatband…I can’t stand it! 🙂

Since we don’t have a water view from our house, and water tends to be what calms my spirit I visit Chambers at least once a week to take a moment to breath, focus, recenter. Even though it’s always busy, and sometimes I’ve got Sky with me to keep track of, it’s still a few moments of peace and calm that leaves me feeling refreshed and energized.

Still so much to put back together from the U.S. Open…still an awesome view of the sound though.

How are you enjoying the last two days of summer?
