Kisses on the Avon River as we pulled our two kayaks together close for a photo op.
Still cannot believe we have been married for ten years
This is it. Though autumn does not begin for another twenty one days, this is our last weekend of summer. My husband has been back to work since our 10th Anniversary trip and this week my kids go back to school. While both my sons and my husband and I are glad to have a new school term starting, it makes me a bit sad to know that summer is coming to a close. However any sadness is overshadowed by the immense thankfulness I have for what a great summer it has been. Not counting the week my boys and I spent at the Jersey Shore last year with my family, it has probably been 2007 since the four of us have really experienced and loved every moment of summer.
All the family dramarama stayed stateside and our entire vacation in Wales was but perfection, including our Vow Renewal. We got to experience a lovely two days in London with my mum and sister, a city the three of us have not all been at together since we lived in England back in the early 90’s. Another ‘this is your life’ moment was when my mum and I got to show Ryan and my sons the city of Oxford, the place where I was born during my father’s second out of three tours stationed in England. The rest of our summer has been filled with country walks, picnics in the park, kayak journeys on the rivers and canals around Bath, and enjoying food and drinks at our favourite pubs.
With summer getting ready to be behind us I can now count out the rest of the year by upcoming events and birthdays through the last four months of 2013. It really surprises me every year with how fast the months go by and this year is no exception.
Q: What has been your favourite thing about this summer
and what are you looking forward to in the last third of 2013?
