Living in Michigan it was always a bummer to see the first leaves starting to change around mid August. It meant the summer was over and that school would soon be starting. Once I was done with school this didn’t seem to bother me as much since I do indeed love the fall, especially when it didn’t mean school was starting.
This summer I’ve been living in Michigan spending time with my family before relocating again to Seattle. Previously I’ve been in Texas where this slow change basically does not take place. At least not in Austin anyhow. The last few days I’ve been scouring the tree line just daring a leaf to be red, yellow, or orange. At first I saw nothing and would be glad that the dog days of summer were still upon us. Then it happened. I didn’t notice the first tree but my dad pointed it out to me. There is was starting to change colors. You know when you notice one then you start to see them everywhere? Yep, the trees are starting to change and yes that means summer is coming to a close.
This year, for me, that means heading out to Seattle. I have just 3 weeks left in Michigan and I’m sure they will fly by! I have much more excitement about the summer ending because I get to be with Walker in Seattle but like everything with an ending I find sadness in it. As the leaves continue to change I’ll be preparing for my change also. I have a few more fun things planned and then it’s packing and sorting before I fly on out of here. To the rest of summer!
P.S. My next few posts may be photo less. Between all my flitting about between this parent and that and this city and that I left my camera chord at my dad’s. Oy! I also have a giveaway I want to do but that will probably have to wait until next week. I’ll keep you posted!
