Looking forward to summer...wait...What?

We live in the wonderful land of Lincoln (aka Illinois). Normally we have 4 seasons, summer, fall, winter and spring. However, good ol' mother nature decided to skip summer and jet us right into fall. I LOVE fall, it is my favorite time of year. The reasons I love it are many including, the apple farm, cider, leaves changing color and feeling crip air while wearing a hoodie and stylish sweatpants (not the ones with elastic around the ankles, i would NEVER wear those, at least not in public). Its mid July and I found myself the last few days opting for jeans and a zip up hoodie sweatshirt! Crazyness i tell ya. To be completely honest, I am missing summer this year. Will summer ever come to the land of Lincoln? I can only remain positive that maybe next week will be different!

I hope you all are wearing your fashionable sweatpants (or daisy dukes if you state it experienceing summer!)

Oh... I would be so bummed! We are pretty hot here in Utah. We were in the 100's last week... luckily we're back to the 90's this week. I hope summer decides to come back for you!

I know we all want what we don't have but I sure do wish for some fall weather right now. We are suffering from extreme heat here in CA and I long for some cooler weather....oh well, I guess our wants are what keep life interesting, huh?? How's that cute little Malachi doing?? I meant to comment on your last post about how impressed I am with his standing.
