kicking summer out

But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.                                       -Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

    I had a lovely summer, and the weather here in STL was gorgeous – but I am ready for fall. Also, I love the bag you stole from your mother. Perfect for this Illinois alum!

      My mom has the best purses and “permanently borrowing” them is a hobby of mine. :) Glad your summer was wonderful!
