Summer, So Long

You've let me out to play like an indulgent parent whose offspring are allowed to run amok across the continents and arrive home in a whirlwind with tangled hair and tales to tell, with bumps and bruises and blackberry stained mouths.
I will miss you. I will miss so many things...

watching sunsets over the sea at the Palaepaphos Museum

seeing beautiful things like picrolite and waterfalls

hanging out in the animal kingdom

riding the waves of many different oceans

playing Rapunzel at La Tour de By

spending time with my gorgeous raucous sisters,


my loving ladylike mama

and my disco dancing papa

making my way through some insane menus

visiting far-fetched people I love, and meeting those I know I'm going to love too

getting my indie on with old friends, getting my sassy on with the new

storming around at least ten cities in four different countries
and happily coming back again.
After all, home is where the heart is.

Take care of your sweet sunny self until we meet again next year, okay?

Looks like you had a fun summer. Personally I can't wait for the cold weather and dark nights, but that's just me.

Great photos! Looks like an awesome summer..is that a donkey? superb. Usually I don't like summer, but this year I've had two in a row (Aussie and European) and I'm sad to see the end of Summer too!
