Summer is hard to say goodbye to. I’ll miss the slower pace and no-cook dinners. It’s not all sadness, though, because fall is a mighty fine season, too. I’m already thinking about a trip to the cider mill for donuts and cider. Before I move on, though, I’m going to give summer one last high five with a post of my phone photos from summer 2014.
