August has always signaled that the end of summer is coming near for me. It feels like we hit that mark a few weeks ago here in London though with the cool autumn like weather we have been having. I keep telling Rico that summer is over but we are trying to hold out hope that things will turn around here. Besides focusing on the weather, I've been enjoying our time back in London with a more low key schedule. June and the first half of July were definitely crazy. I thought we had learned our lesson when we did the same thing last year but we couldn't help packing our schedules full with travel itineraries. It's such a wonderful time to travel in Europe. You still miss a lot of the crowds but get some great weather. We will continue to stay put until the end of August when we take a little weekend trip to Ireland. We'll get our last taste of summer in September with a trip to Portugal as well as the States (we're hoping autumn arrives a little late!).
Enjoy the sun and all that comes with it while it last folks! Wishing you all the best for August.
