I didn’t want to forget to share pics from a labor day BBQ we had with friends. These are some of our oldest friends, the ones we camp with every summer. And the time together is always sweet. Labor day feels like the official end to summer–don’t you think? Fall begins Sept. 22nd–so we’re almost there. But in my mind, summer is gone and fall is beginning. I thought this week was a great time for some hellos and some good-byes, too.

Hello shorter days, good-bye long evenings.

Hello cozy mornings with the fireplace on, good-bye sleeping in

Hello layering, good-bye tank tops

Hello scarfs and boots {love!}, good-bye flip flops

Hello soups and grilled cheese, good-bye outdoor BBQs

Hello leaves turning red, good-bye sprinkler play

Hello pumpkins, good-bye strawberries

Hello cinnamon candle, good-bye pear candle

Hello fall. I love a new beginning!
