Weekend Reads: Last gasp of summer
It's fully September--chill in the air and everything. I'm holding onto the last vestiges of summer--the occasional temperature spike, the last, sweet tomatoes, the summer nights of sweaters over shorts, digging my toes in the sand to that warm layer underneath. I'm not ready to give it up. It's been harder to transition this year for some reasons, and I love fall. I just don't want to let summer go quite yet. Here's hoping for one last gasp. XX

One of my pet peeves is when someone texts me a question that they could easily Google. Like, you're texting me from a phone with the same capability.
