And, it's officially the last weekend in August--I was at the gym this week at 7:30 p.m. and the sun started to set and it felt a little sad. And I brought a long sleeve shirt for my bike home just in case. I didn't use it, but... it's starting to feel like better the evenings are getting cooler, don't you think? I love this time of year. I think my favorite months are August and September and October. Indian summer, I'm rooting for you.
