I can’t believe summer is over so soon!! It feels like it’s too soon- the leaves have started changing already, and we’ve already had some of those crisp autumn days. Normally, fall is my favorite time of year, but this year, I am just dreading the winter so much that any step in the “cooler” direction has me completely bummed.
This summer was so busy! I entered the cake competition in May, went to Napa/San Fran in June, ran a half marathon in July, and went to Vegas in the middle of August! On top of all of that, Mr. Handsome & I have completed several major projects around the house. For example:
1) He has a man cave that doubles as our office (and you can actually walk into it)
2) We have 2 completed guest bedrooms upstairs and a full guest bathroom
3) A crafting/sewing space for me in one of the guest bedrooms!
With all of that going on, I guess it’s easy to see how the time slipped away so quickly! I will say, I was very disappointed in my container garden this year. I only got 5 small tomatoes, no strawberries, 10 or so peppers, and no edible lettuce. I guess there’s always next summer…bummer!
So, a last summer-y dessert to celebrate the last true day of summer:
…Berries and Cream!! It’s as easy as that..summer’s freshest raspberries and blueberries covered in light, whippy, fabulous homemade whipped cream! And a ladyfinger, for good measure. 😉
I suppose you can also see my fall tablecloth here, in this pumpkin-y color. I will have to post about my fall tablescape later, lol. Lots and Lots and LOTS more posts to come on pumpkin treats this fall…boy, do I love pumpkin! So, there is that to look forward to! 😉
So long, summer…it was amazing and too short! Welcome fall…let’s see what adventures await us this fall!
