Summer is by far my favorite season. I love that it’s filled with warm weather and tons of travel. I love that I can swim in the ocean and walk along the beach, and I love that it stays late long enough to spend time outside long after I’ve finished eating dinner. It’s the sweetest season – one that I look forward to all year long – and it’s one that seems to come to a close much too quickly.
Earlier this year, I said that I wasn’t sure this year could ever top last year. But it already has in so many ways. I’ve met some of the best people, I’ve worked a number of beautiful weddings, and I’ve made it my mission to do things. I’ve learned that the very best way to experience something is to just say yes and make it happen. This summer, I learned how to do calligraphy, traveled to DC twice, visited Asheville (a place my parents and I have said we wanted to see countless times, but this time I said we should go!), adventured to Niagara Falls and faced some of my biggest fears (re: heights and small spaces), and, of course, enjoyed every moment of being on Kiawah Island #myhappyplace.
I view my blog as a way to document parts of the life I lead. It’s not to brag or draw attention, but instead to share what can happen when you say yes to adventure – whatever adventure means for you. Instead of getting completely excited about the fall, I’m always left feeling sad. When I see the leaves starting to change, I want to turn back the hands of time and make them green again. Because green means the promise of summer lives on. Go & Do became my summertime anthem, and I want to make sure that trend continues long after the leaves have changed color and the trees have become bare in time for winter. My sweet season may have ended, but my anthem continues.
I hope you’re having a wonderful start to this new season! xo
