I can’t believe it’s August already. I feel like everyone around me is talking about summer coming to a close or back-to-school stuff. Daylight is fleeting and it’s hard to say goodbye. I usually feel extra nostalgic around this time of year and get caught somewhere between wanting autumn weather and holding on tightly to summer and not ready to say goodbye to the extended daylight. Being in Nashville, I still have a hard time with how early the sun sets. Even in the summer, the latest sunset we get is at 8pm. Where I’m from, Michigan sunsets are around 10pm and set right over Lake Michigan and it’s so beautiful. I wish we had a little bit more daylight here. I’m not ready to say goodbye to longer days.
I’m going to do what I can to enjoy all of August and September to the fullest. A trip to Rock Island, more ice cream dates, and maybe a camping weekend can be squeezed in there. It’ll also be nice to go on more bike rides around Shelby Park once it’s not 100 degrees and humid out.
