Yesterday hubby took the kids shopping for new school bags and when they came home happy and excited it suddenly dawned on me that soon the leaves will start falling – it's almost the end of summer! Of course it's still warm and everything is in bloom but there is always a shift when school bags with small bodies attached to them start appearing all over the city. I've been holding on to summer but I'm slowly giving in to autumn, the cause is probably all the beautiful outfits in the September issues.
Today it was our plan to leave the city and maybe go to Amsterdam or find a nice seaside somewhere in the Netherlands, but the weather is crazy. We've had thunderstorms and now it's pouring rain. Maybe we'll simply stay home, read and make a chocolate tray bake.
I'm leaving you with prettiness in the Nightingale Park, shot during one of our many picnics this summer in the flower garden section. Have a fabulous Friday!
