Are You Sad That Summer is Over?

Now that it is September already (I can't believe it), summer has unfortunately come to an end and people are gearing up for school and work. I have to say it makes me a little sad. I feel like I have to say goodbye to the fun and carefree attitude I've become so accustomed to during the summer months.

Once the weather really cools off, there will be no more summer dresses, no more sandals, no more hanging out on the beach, no more BBQs, no more boating and no more swimming outside. I know I'm being a baby about it, but when you love summer so much, you can't help but feel a sense of loss and grief when fall begins to blow in.

I'm sure everyone has ways that they deal with the changing seasons. For me, I do every summery thing I can think of right now and get my fill of the last few warm days and to get excited about fall, I go shopping for new autumn clothes.

So how about you? How do you feel about the changing seasons? Are you happy about it? Are you a little sad like me? How do you deal with the fact that fall is coming?

Summer is my favorite season. I am sad to see it go. But fall is my second favorite season and I love fall fashions, so I'll manage. Winter SUCKS!

The only two good things about the end of summer - college football season and my birthday, which is at the end of september. other than that, fall sucks. Summer is my fave time of year. i wish it were still here. Fall also means that it is almost time for winter. I hate the cold!!!!!!!!!!

It occurred to me today that the days are getting shorter and shorter, which means that pretty soon it'll still be pitch black outside when I wake up for work in the mornings. How depressing!

I like how easy it is to dress in the summer; little skirts and tops. But I enjoy Fall.

I am. I always have a really, really hard time transitioning to fall. I always have, which makes me never look forward to my birthday (end of Sept.). I love summer so much - I love swimming and it breaks my heart every year to close the pool. Meaning, it really hurts. I am not being dramatic here. And now that I am married and have stepkids, we have less time with them too during the week (they go home an hour earlier when they visit us), so that is just another thing to add to the pile. I have often wondered if I have S.A.D.

Summer is my favorite season although in Florida we have sunny weather most of the time but during the summer is more laid back people go on vacations the traffic is not so horrible and everyone just tries to have fun! I'm sad summer's ending.

I tend to buy a lot of fashion magazines, and prepare for the upcoming fall fashion. Pretty ladylike macs, scarves, well cut winter coats, lovely patterned opaque tights, all to make you look all glam and sophisticated does it for me. I also see it as, oh xmas is not too far away! Yaay! Loads of office parties in december ;-)

I am sad that it's leaving, but at the same time I do enjoy some of fall/winter. You don't get that awful humidity anymore (my a/c in my car is toast), you can walk outside without worry about your whole body burning (usually covered in a thick layer of columbia jacket!), and I do think I look cute in winter clothing. On the other hand, I'll be freezing most of winter, and I'm in the snow belt of Ontario...meaning the storms are brutal!

I'm not a summer person. I'm more of a Fall/Spring person. I prefer the weather that is not too hot but not too cool. I love it when the weather is between 60-75 degrees.

I am so sad summer is over! I had an amazing summer filled with vacationing, many beach trips and endless bbq's. Since I work for the school system it also means time to get back to work! I dont mind the fall but I am dreading the cold winter. I have been trying to get in as many beach trips as possible to hold onto summer a little more lol. That helps :)

I'm not sad at all, I love fall so much. Plus this horrific drought has to end and so does the heat. I don't like living in Hell. That's why I'm going to Portland until all this nasty heat goes away.

Maybe if I had access to a boat I'd be sad summer was over. But DC summers are disgusting so I'm never sad to say good-bye to this heat. Fall is my favorite season so I'm psyched for it! PS to Fab4, hear hear to football season. I'm so excited!!!

Fall is my favorite season! I love the cool air and the colorful trees :) I did spend the past two falls with my now ex-boyfriend, though. Summer and spring we were always in different states... so fall might remind me too much of him. :P I really hope that doesn't ruin my favorite season for me! :)

Summer has technically been over for me for the last two weeks - started school again and work full time as well! I'm looking forward to fall, it's my favorite season. :D I love the cozy clothes, the smells, the falling leaves, everything about it!

To me, every season has its pros and cons. I like the free time summer offers, and the swimming, and the chance to travel and see my family, and to sit around all day reading books. But the fall is always exciting, because school starts again, and it's a fresh start for the year, and the weather is pleasantly cool, and I have a chance to feel busy and productive before I get totally swamped. I do have to say, though, I would like one more week of free time before school gets going again. I can't really complain though.
