It’s August. Why don’t you…
There’s something special about August. It’s just the best of both worlds. You see, I love fall. It’s very much my favorite season. But I am also a summer girl at heart. So to me, August is like having your cake and eating it too. Perhaps it’s knowing that summer is winding down and that there are new beginnings around the corner with back to school, getting into routines, fall approaching and the -BER months. Around this time every year I try to cram in every last bit of summer, right up through Labor Day hanging out poolside, grilling while also getting excited for all the pumpkin spice that will be coursing through my veins, sweaters and cozy recipes.
If you are like me. Here are some ways to enjoy every last drop of August.
It’s August, why don’t you…
Pick some sunflowers. (If you’re in the Upstate area, here are some of my fave spots).
Have a lobster roll.
Hit up the farmer’s market and enjoy fresh summer produce like peaches, zucchini and corn.
This summer stonefruit and burrata salad has been on repeat all season.
I also have my favorite zucchini recipes here.
Dry your hydrangeas. Now is a great time to start clipping them and drying them out to use all year round.
Get in the last of those books you wanted to read this summer and finish out the summer reading challenge strong.
August 9th is Book Lover’s Day. Get all of your bookie friends together and host a Book Exchange Brunch.
Gather the kids and all their friends together and hit up the Drive -Ins for one last summer hurrah.
Start easing into fall decor and DIYs. Like this fall front porch decor idea.
Make your bucket list for fall.
