As summer comes to a close and my favorite season rounds the corner, I can’t help but feel excited to trade the hot days, for cool nights, lemonades for pumpkin spice lattes and bright green leaves for rusty harvest colored ones.
I hope you all had fun filled summers, with brilliant memories made and maybe a chance to allow nature to inspire you to put pen to paper. As you’ll notice below, there are some hazards to this trade ( in the form of ants!).
Now back from my summer getaways, I’m more focused and back on track. Being more productive and checking off lists, puts this anal retentive writer in a happy place. I am most happy when I am in the writing zone…or traveling… or writing about traveling!
I thought I’d share some pictures of my last hazy lazy crazy days of summer. Tell me about your summers!

The tree pictured here, lent for a great back support while writing and enjoying my equestrian view. However, I didn’t realize how many ant colonies were built around its greatness. The itching was my first clue, followed by many, many red bumps-all over my legs and arse! Writing outside comes with its challenges!
