Savoring the Month of August

Tuesday, August 02, 2016

August is a transition month.

I talked before about why I don't like Summer, but there's just something about August that makes me feel like I need to spend a little extra time soaking up all of the Summer things before Fall takes over.

In August I try to eat more watermelon, spend a few more hours at the pool, and burn my lemonade scented candles a couple of extra times. I'm just bursting with excitement over the fact that my favorite season is right around the corner, but at the same time I feel a little sadness over the fact that another season will be ending in a short time.

I try to savor the month of August. To drag it out just a tiny bit longer, and to make the most of the last long days of summer time.

Usually, the end of summer is marked for me by the beginning of a new school semester, but this will be the first time that I won't be joining anyone in buying school supplies and attending my first week of classes.

Instead i'll send the summer out with late night ice cream dates, last minute trips to the beach and buying all of the Target bikinis until it's too cold to wear them anymore (which in California really doesn't come until much, much later in the year).

Even if it isn't your favorite, enjoy the month of August while it's here. Sooner than we realize, the month will be over and I want to be able to say that I savored each and every day.

How will you be making the most out of this month? 


  1. August doesn't feel so summery... but has the start of fall feeling to it, so I'm a fan. Although I do miss school supply shopping!

  2. I love August, for me it's that perfect transition from summer to fall.
