Every time fall rolls around, I seem to be a mixed bag of emotions.

Excited for sweater weather and boots and fires and all the coziness.

Not-so-excited to give up that lazy summer feeling, long days and the warmth.

This time last year, I think we were still recovering from the wedding and garage and laundry room renovation; I remember thinking that summer went by in a blink and I wasn’t ready for all things fall.

This year, I am a little more indifferent.

Side note: Brett is ALWAYS ready for fall. It’s his favorite time of the year so any nostalgia related to summer is completely non-existent.

For once in my life, I don’t feel like the summer flew by. Yes, it went rather quickly, but I feel like we actually did things. Contrary to what we share on the blog, we didn’t actually spend every waking moment doing projects 😛

We made an intention at the beginning of summer to slow it down, simplify and actively make time for the things we wanted to do.

Don’t get me wrong, we worked our butts off but we also had some time for fun. galvanized bucket on bench

Unlike last year, nearly every Sunday in July and August included a few hours out on the lake.

And while we didn’t get to everything (camping up north was a big one), I still feel like it wasn’t a complete blur of go-go-go.

Brett, on the other hand, probably has a completely different perspective. He traveled quite a bit this summer for work and missed out on a few things because of it. Summer seemed to be his busy season, which is probably why he loves fall so much. ?

So, where do you stand this year? Are you jumping for joy because you love all things pumpkin or are you clinging to every last day of heat and sunshine?!

Wherever you stand, here’s to another season of simple and being intentional about doing those things that make you happy.
