the last bit of summer

It's true... fall is right around the corner. I love fall. It's fresh (weather), exciting (football) and full of holidays and events to look forward to (and not to beat a dead horse, but also our BABY!). However... I'm not there yet. Not today.

This week we are stretching out our summer with a week at the beach house. Tommy's 30th birthday was last week and in an attempt to go above and beyond for this milestone year, I planned a surprise beach week and invited all of his friends to join us. So we're here for the week and we have lots of friendly faces dropping in to visit for a few days here and there. As I type this Tommy is out on the ocean in a sailboat with his friend Dave. Success!

I have spent the past few days sitting on the beach reading, doing a little work here and there, and enjoying lots of bubble baths. :)

Oh... and taking pictures, of course. Here are two of my favs (the one on the left was taken from inside of the car):

I'm excited about fall (always am), but I'm soaking up the rays right now... soaking up these last few weeks of life with just me and my man. <3
