OMG you guys, where did summer go? It was like one minute it was sunny and we were hanging by the lake and then Labor Day weekend came and Mother Nature flipped her switch and it was instant fall. I don’t know about you…but I like the more gradual approach to seasonal changes. I like to try and squeeze in my last wear of my white pants and summer blouses. I like to sleep with the windows open. I LOVE to drink margaritas outside somewhere on a patio. Summertime, you will be missed because I feel like it is officially fall in Cleveland.
Just a few weeks ago I met up with a friend downtown at our gorgeous Public Square for an drinks & snacks at one of my favorite “healthy” dining destinations; REBoL. We sat outdoors and took in the warm sunshine and summer evening sounds of people laughing, playing music and hanging outdoors. We watched the kids play in the fountains and I even jumped in and splashed around with them…I just couldn’t resist.
I had one of the best maple and limeade cocktails I have ever experienced and summer felt complete. It’s like we knew that any day now the seasons would change and while we were enjoying strappy sandals and straw bags we would soon be in suede booties and big fall scarves.
Over this past weekend I did my officially closet switch and brought out all of my fall sweaters and cozy boyfriend jeans and coats…I LOVE good coats. I packed away my summer prints…although you might see this incredible “camel coat” pop up with a black turtle neck underneath it this fall, for the most part all of the spring/summer stuff has been put in the way back of my closet until next year. Boo hoo.
If you haven’t been downtown to check out REBoL, you should totally plan a visit. Morning, noon and night, they have a very tasty menu and it is for the most part pretty healthy but always delicious. I actually really love their breakfast menu and always suggest to clients we meet there for project meetings. So yummy.
Hope everyone had a great week back to work after a long holiday weekend. It is supposed to be kinda yucky weather-wise over the next few days, so bust out those rain boots and warm sweaters and stay dry.
Please also keep all of those affected by the recent storms in Texas, Florida and the Islands in your thoughts and prayers, their weather has been nothing like I can even imagine. Have fun packing up your summer duds and pulling out your sweaters…WELCOME FALL in the CLE!
