I saw this picture on Facebook the other day, and I just had to laugh. It seems everyone these days agrees. But I would like to respectfully disagree. I love August! It has always meant Summer to me; synonymous with vacation- never school, never work, and certainly never Fall! But now things are being pushed back, and giving good old August a quasi “Fall feeling”. So I have a challenge for everyone! Let’s take August BACK!
Even if school has begun, in what month can you ALSO go swimming after you leave the classroom? Well, AUGUST! How about sports… can you hit up a chilly DQ on the way home from a stinky sweaty practice? Why yes, you certainly can! To remind you- we are talking about eating MORE ice cream. Still with me?
And in the stores- ( this part IS hard for my crafty eye to resist) walk PAST all the scarecrows and adorable Halloween decor that may even be on sale for 30% off ( yes- that means bypassing the beloved candy corn for at least another month) and float on into what is left of the Summer isle and seize that 80% off! Who doesn’t love a steal?
Grab something with a shell on it, an awesome pair of discounted sandals, a bottle of fruity Sangria, a boatload of water balloons and TAKE AUGUST BACK! You can do it! It’s in your blood! August is, and always will be a part of Summer. It is up to YOU if you want a little more adventure in your calendar. I know I do! Who’s with me?
