Bye Bye Summer, Hello Fall

The sounds of summer are slowly disappearing around here.  The weather lately is something I actually look forward to unlike those miserable days of triple digit weather in July and August.  Seriously, it was hotter than Hades.  But now, now it's hard not to get excited about fall and the cooler temperatures.

This weekend I drove to San Antonio for a portrait session with my cousin that I have been planning for a while now.  I checked the weather for Saturday and Sunday - only a thirty percent chance of rain.  That's do-able, right? 


Apparently thirty percent decided to turn into 100 percent chance early Sunday morning.  The session was supposed to be at 10am on Sunday - gotta love morning light!  Well, about 3:30am in the morning I was woken up by huge strikes of lightning flashing through my parent's windows.  And loud cracks of thunder scaring the dogs.  I noticed it's raining.  Hard.  

Well, crap!

By 7am it's still dark outside, still cloudy, and STILL raining.  I can't help but think it's going to rain  And it does.  Till about 3pm in the afternoon.  That's ALOT of rain people!!  I want so bad to be mad that my photo session was canceled, but we really needed the rain. #sadface

I swear the rain washed away all hint and smells of summer, and brought with it cooler days.  After that much rain, I declare it the official start to fall and the year of the Great Pumpkin

Pumpkin patches -- the epitome of fall!! 

Mmm, pumpkin pie.
How many pumpkin pies could you make from these pumpkins?!


  1. I gotta go to a pumpkin patch asap! Gotta love fall! :)

    I could go without the rain though. Maybe some at bed time? haha.
