Summer + Katie 4EVA

It is with a heavy heart I publicly recognize summer is ending. Le sigh. Today my brother is coming to the District for school, and it's only weeks until I begin my career as a graduate student. They say if you love something let it go. Summer, I want you forever.

Bikini, I'm sorry we didn't spend more time at the beach, it ought to be a crime. Here's to next year, sunshine.
Lovely flower I found outside, stay golden. Don't give into the nasty demands of fall/winter, thrive, my little friend, thrive.
You too outdoor garden, stay strong.
Does this look like a lovely summer day? Why yes, it does.

FALLEN LEAVES, WHAT IS THIS. I just don't understand, how can this be happening?
More fallen leaves. Dear Mother Nature, we are in a fight. Sorry. xoxo Katie Ps. Sweet tennis balls.
Random plant surrounded by rocks, I find you aesthetically pleasing. 


Outdoor plants, I love you. Lets fight for summer to be extended together. I'll make the signs and you can make up the songs we will chant on the picket line.
 What makes this picture so lovely? The fact that there is no snow on the ground!! I am going to have to spend some long hours with my therapist before I am ready to deal with snow again.
ICED TEA!! Iced tea is the very epitome of summer. Sure you can drink it in winter, but the sunshine of summer is what really gives it flavor.
Check out the clouds I saw hanging outside of my window. So fluffy!

Everyone remember the carpet debacle of 2011? I'm happy to announce that Roger has found a carpet that was not accessory to murder or laden with bedbugs. I'm sure we will all sleep more peacefully comforted by this fact.
Not wearing anything special today buttttttt I cut and dyed my hair? Can you tell?!?! This isn't the color advertised on the box...way darker, but I think I can work it.


Running late, gotta dash. CIAO!!

  32. cute bikini. I also lament the end of summer, though sadly I don't have school to look forward to. Just the horrible prospect of a shitty job for all eternity.

  41. There never seems to be enough summer, does there? My bikini and I have spent criminally little time in the sun this year :( It looks like you've had a lot of fun, though. Good luck starting grad school, I can't wait to hear about it!

  50. Nooooo! I refuse to acknowledge that the summer is almost over. Sigh. Why is this season so short? I dread the winter. After the winter most Americans experienced last year, I can only hope for an Indian summer.
