Summer has gone by in a whirlwhind of travel (more on that later!), family, friends, new clients, and repeat clients. And before I knew it my boys were back at school. The heat wave that Chicago was enjoying (OK, maybe I was the only one enjoying it) was over and the temperature came crashing down to 63 degrees yesterday morning as well as I dropped my guys off for 7th grade and 4th grade.
It feels like summer is offically over. At least in my house.
Anyone who knows me knows how incredibly sad that makes me. Summer is my season. I love the summer. The heat. The humidity. The sun. The beach. The pool. The smell of suntan lotion. Staying up late. Sleeping in late (although I’m not very good at either one of those things!) Summer clothes. Flip flops. Rooftop decks. This is the only reason I tolerate Chicago through the months of February and March. Now, I know that it’s not *really* over and we still have beautiful days ahead. Plenty of beach days. But now that the routine of school is back, which means homework (and lots of it!), it feels very different.
But one thing that does lift my spirits is looking at images of these sweet babies!!!! I could’ve this photographed this family all day long! From big brothers curls and big brown eyes, and little brothers sweet lips and smiles and mom’s gorgeous hair and dad’s cool tattoos – yeah, I was in heaven!! Here are some of my favorites – it was really hard to choose!!!
