Today was the first day of fall. It's bittersweet. I say goodbye to my favorite season and hello to my 2nd favorite season with my 1st favorite holiday. I ripped the summer banner off of the mantle with flair. Pretty soon it will be replaced with something Halloweenish. Here are a few pictures I took with my dad's camera of the butterfly party that occurred daily in the yard for a few weeks. I'm hoping next year everything will bloom at normal times since it will be the second year for most of it and I'll get the Monarchs for a little longer.

For the last week of summer, we went on vacation to Cape San Blas. It was our second time visiting Cape and our weather wasn't as great this time but we had just as much fun. We travel with our little group of friends that changes slightly from year to year, but it's always filled with fun people. We only had one clear night, but it was just as magical as I can remember from our first trip. You can see the Milky Way and every star. You can look up for five minutes and expect to see some shooting stars. I can't imagine being there during a meteor shower, but maybe sometime if the stars align (haha) it'll happen. The sky alone is worth the trip, but staying with friends on the beach for a week, cooking, drinking, and laughing is definitely a bonus. Here are some (a lot) pictures I deemed worthy of posting, but it was hard to narrow it down to just these.
