September 5th, 2012 | Goodbye Summer… recap

Above: Crafty goodness, Flower crown party, Owl pillow & cake I made for a coworker’s last day (she loves owls), sushi, deep fried mac n cheese, red velvet funnel cake (I was hurting for a few days.. but I just had to try these last two), summer fashion (pretty much everything in these ones are H&M).

I had a wonderful summer, and even though it’s leaving I can’t say that I’m too sad. I’m totally ready for fall. My summer was everything I aimed for it to be! I had tons of crafternoons, I managed to get the craft room all organized, pigged out lots, went on day trips out of town to go antiquing, landed a really cool job for the summer at a fashion PR firm, threw a flower crown making garden party and most importantly spent my summer with the best kids around town. The only thing I didn’t get to do that I wanted to was swim, which is kinda sad because thats what summer is all about hah!

August went by really quickly for me. Honestly mostly because most of it was spent in bed for me recovering from my accident, and then getting pretty sick after that because my immune system was shot. I’m still getting over a bug but it has turned more into a really bad cold the past day or so. Because of this too I have a few things I still want to share with you guys from my summer. I have an entire post on the garden party planned, and then a few recipes from things I made for that. (Tea-infused cocktails, a really wicked desert, and I’ve decide to share one of my top secret recipes.)

I’m seriously so excited for fall though. Summer can take a hike. Fall is my favourite time of the month, and I have a lot of really fun things planed for both real world and the blog. I’ve been collecting items for my fall wardrobe since end of July, so I’m really itching to wear those too. I’ve decided that it’s totally okay to start busting out some fall wardrobe items even though its still hot out because Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is back. Justified, right?! ;)

I hope you guys all had a wonderful summer. I can’t wait to hear about them all! :D

    I agree! Summer was nice, but I am so ready for fall, especially fall fashion(e.g. boots and scarves)!

    I’m sorry to hear you got in an accident. I’m glad to hear you’re doing better, though. <3
