Summer lovin’

I love summer so much that I named my first computer Summer (I also loved the O.C a lot at the time).  Things are getting autumnal but I just had a week in the sun and I can’t quite bring myself to say goodbye to summer yet.

  3. A sign I saw for winter vegetable soup at the end of August. Um, let’s not skip the entire spectacular season of autumn guys.
