Wow! Where the HECK did Summer go??

I bet I'm not the only one out there who is left sitting out on the porch, shaking her head wondering where in the HECK Summer ran off to (pun intended if you know me😀)? Granted, it's still about a million degrees outside, but the feeling of Summer, of those long hot weekends spent by the pool with a margarita or a snow cone or trying to completely avoid the sun altogether with gallons of sunscreen and lots of indoor gym time (that actually paints a more accurate picture of me this time around) feels like it's leaving us behind faster than a toupee in a hurricane. Fall in Texas feels like Summer everywhere else, so down here we all have a little while longer to enjoy the warm weather, but school has started back up, traffic is bad again, and the general feeling just changes.

So far, even with the heat and sun it's been SO much fun to practice at the BMX track and put in those (not so long) miles. I guess you sort of get "used" to the heat and humidity, but practicing and training anytime has just felt like so much fun to me lately, and you can't beat that laid back non-work hours Summer wardrobe either. I've really been loving my sandals and got to add a pair of those so-ugly-they-are-fashionable-and-pretty Birkenstocks to my collection. I know, it's a pretty divisive shoe. Love it or hate it. I chose the pebbled gold color:

After about a two week break in time they are starting to become the most comfortable shoes I own, with exception to my running shoes. Birkenstocks, watermelon, traveling with my boyfriend, BMX racing and running pretty sums up my Summer for me. I don't know about you, but I am going to enjoy it for the next three weeks to its fullest! 

What words sum up this Summer for you?
