I am weirdly ready to welcome September.  Ordinarily I mourn the passing of August, because it means the dreadful rainy season is fast approaching.  But I'm almost happy it's pouring today.  And I'll be glad to pack away all my fans.  Ruh roh....It's happening...I'm turning into a WASHINGTONIAN!  (Next thing you know I'll be wearing shorts and a tank when it hits 55 degrees.)

{ welcome september }



{ how are you feeling on this last day of August? }

    tanks and shorts in 55 degrees? You say it like that's odd. I'm wearing a tank today, under my fur-lined vest :p

    I'm ready for fall. I like the mild temps it brings...plus I plan to break out some new rubber rainboots this year!

    Oh I am so ready for Fall! It's 96 degrees here today and I'm totally over it. You sound like my cousins who live in Maine and think that 50 degree weather means hanging out by a swimming pool and getting sun?

    Nooooo!!!!!! Not another person who is ok with the rain and grey skies!!!!

    I'm originally from Eastern Oregon but have been on the west side of the state for five years now...I still hate it with a burning passion. I do like fall, but the fact that summer has to leave makes me sad. And with the ridiculous-ness that's been "summer" in the pacific northwest, I'm definitely wanting another month of sun and heat.

    I've been in a bit of a funk over the last few days...I finally realized it's because of the grey skies.

    I am SO ready for fall! This summer has been so ridiculously hot. I'm ready for crisp, warm sunny fall days where I can walk outside without melting. Bye-bye August!

    Being a tropical/island girl, i live for the summer. However, this summer has been so hot that i'll lovingly embrace September with its coolness. Love today's treasuries too. xx

    You crack me up! :) I have a friend from Oregon who now lives in Patagonia, where I pretty much wear my puffy jacket every day. And he seriously wears shorts almost all the time! If you end up doing that, wow, well you are just a rockstar, and maybe a little crazy! :)
