It's pretty well documented on this blog that Fall is my favorite season, but that doesn't mean I don't like Summer. I love the long days, summer thunderstorms, bike rides, sunscreen, pool time, fresh fruit and veggies, hikes and BBQs.
When August comes, I have mixed feelings. Part of me is super excited for cooler temperatures, football season, sweatshirts and fall foliage. But another part of me wants to hang on to summer. I still have a few summer adventures left. I haven't spent enough time reading at the pool. I still haven't climbed a 14er!
But it's ok. I still have some time to learn to mountain bike (next weekend), hike a 14er (the following one) and for one more long weekend trip (Philadelphia!). Once I have finished all of that, it will be Fall and I can embrace the new change without being sad that Summer is finished.
I have a few new knitting patterns to share soon. I'm trying to finish a few last minute gifts for babies and birthdays. But I have a project I'm really excited about that has to do with Fall and NFL football.
To celebrate the last part of summer and the quickly approaching Fall, let's have a contest! I'll randomly pick 5 winners to win one of my knitting patterns. Enter by following me on Instagram (@lchunt) and then commenting on this post with your Instagram username. You have until Thursday, August 6th to enter.
