Brrrr, it’s chilly outside and it’s still officially summer. I can’t help but get defensive when I read “summer is over” when the calendar tells us it’s still summer until the 21st of September. August was a blur of work and cottaging and I can’t help but still dream about returning to my family’s wonderful lake pad. I’m not ready to see socks on feet, feel cool skin and say goodbye to my summer tan. Heck, I’m still planning another trip to my cottage so come on September, show me the hot, sunny weather I know you have in you! The image above is one from a family cottage session in early August that I’m currently editing. I just needed to take a break and gaze into this warm light.
