This weekend marks the official end of summer. I’m really not sure how I feel about this… partly because my head is spinning from how fast the last few months flew by and I’m having trouble concentrating. 

One one hand, I can’t believe that summer is over and I didn’t take one trip to the beach or spend a single day on a boat in one of the dozens of lakes that surround me; I’ve been so busy with family stuff and the whole working-three-jobs-and-trying-to-start-a-business thing. 

On the other hand, I’m really looking forward to fall. It comes with some pretty awesome stuff: cooler weather, pumpkin lattes, Thanksgiving, and the end of bathing suit season (among other great things).

On the subject of fall and style, I usually change my hair color to darker/warmer tones around this time of year. These photos were taken at sunset, so my hair looks really red… and I kind of dig it. I’ve never gone dramatic red, but I think I may have to give it a go.

    >I agree, pumpkin lattes are one of the nest things about fall!Your hair looks good this color, but I used to go back and forth from reddish to brown with the seasons too, and that somehow made the changing of seasons a little more definite.
