Labor Day Weekend signals the end of summer, my absolute favorite season. Instead of lamenting its end, I thought I’d reflect on things that I loved about summer 2015. So in no specific order, here are four things that made me feel fabulous this summer.
v Visiting family—My brother and his family live in Seattle, so I headed out west to walk the city, dine at the Space Needle and spend time with them in a great city.
v Oktoberfest—I’d never gone before, and though I’m not a teetotaler, I rarely imbibe. And yet I had a great time hanging out with my honey, drinking some liquor and dancing to an 80’s cover band. Who knew German culture could be so fun?
v Retirement party—I’d never been to one before, but I loved hanging with my work buds on a deck celebrating a friend’s new-found freedom
v Discovering new and old authors—Tillie Cole and Lydia Michaels are my ones to watch now that I’ve sampled some of their work and really liked it. And I also rediscovered Kat Martin. I forgot how much I love old school late 80’s/early 90’s romances.
Here’s hoping that fall 2015 will be just as fun as the summer. So how was your summer? What things made you want to enjoy a never-ending summer?
