Summer always seems to end so abruptly after Labor Day, doesn’t it? Having been in Ketchikan, Alaska on Labor Day, I had Fall forced upon me very early this year (even though it was 90 degrees back home) and I even found myself buying a pumpkin at the market yesterday. But I wanted to share a few final nostalgic summer snapshots before I officially dive headfirst into Autumn.
