Even though today is the first day of fall — and I love fall — my heart will always be with summer. I love the heat, the lazy days, no schedules and lots of time at the beach.
This summer we were lucky to spend a lot of time with family and pack in many adventures. When school started for Gia and work started for me, I was ready for the routines and the normalcy that fall brings. But, mother nature wasn’t! Those first few weeks of the school year were unseasonably warm. The humid, 90-degree days meant Gia’s school didn’t even let them out for recess. That gorgeous weather made it tough to concentrate on teaching grammar lessons to a classroom of 20 year olds. It made me dream of just one more day at the beach.
My husband had a few extra days off and we tried to make it back to the beach one last time, but it didn’t work out. Work and schedules and activities got in the way and we never did get to stick our toes in the sand one last time before fall really arrived. But instead of lamenting about that last beach day that I missed, I brought a little bit of summer right back to our house, thanks to ProFlowers and their gorgeous summertime collection.
I chose this beautiful arrangement called All the Frills because I love the colors. If fall was a color it would be purple or orange or gold. But not summer. Summer is bright vibrant colors that make you want to get outside and celebrate the beauty of Mother Nature. The various shades of pink and green in my All the Frills bouquet are just lovely and they bring me right back to the heat and haze of summer that I love so much. Thanks to ProFlowers I’m saving summer right in my own house!
I love how the flowers look on my kitchen table. It makes me so happy to see them there and I just love that I had vase choices. I chose the teal mason jar to coordinate with the teal placemats and teal accent we have in our family room (which opens into the kitchen).
Life is busy and unexpected and sometimes our plans don’t work out. My last day at the beach never did happen but it doesn’t mean I can’t stop and smell the flowers. With these gorgeous ProFlowers I’m saving summer just a little longer!
