While winter has fully (and I mean fully) arrived in Calgary this week, Rye and I managed to catch a few photos of fall before the snow completely set in. It was nice to be able to walk around and enjoy the colours without having to bundle up in a ton of layers. While I still prefer summer, I will definitely take fall over the snow that does not seem to want to stop falling in Calgary. In the meantime, I am glad that I am bundled up inside classrooms for the foreseeable future.

A few weeks ago Rye and I headed into the mountains to get some more coveted shots of Moraine Lake before they close the road for the year. To our surprise, there was already a plethora of snow blanketing the roads and the mountains. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the mountains in the snow (it is probably one of the most beautiful sites there is and also so iconically Canadian), but it is not a site I want to see in mid-September. Is anyone else as sad as I am about the sudden end of summer?

Over the last few months I have taken some time to really focus on spending time with family, friends and enjoying the things that summertime brings. As most know by now, summer is by far my favorite season and every year as the days grow shorter and the weather begins to turn cold once more, I again feel sad to see summer go. No matter how much sun and time enjoying the nice weather I try to soak up, it never even seems to be close to enough to get me through the colder months.

Last week, Rye and I decided to spontaneously go on a picnic. I think we were both bored of sitting at home and eating dinner the same way we always do. And with the weather being so nice, it was hard to pass up the idea of getting out of the house and enjoying nature for an evening. I remember growing up as a kid dreaming about sitting on a gingham blanket and enjoying a meal with my partner out in the sun. I am pretty sure it was every single romantic comedy that came out during that time that made me think it was some sort of relationship milestone or right of passage.

I have been having a moment with simple dresses lately as they are one of the easiest items to throw on quickly without having to think too much. When summer comes around, while I love the warm weather (and would rarely complain), I am always looking for quick pulled together looks. It is also an easy excuse for me to wear the overgrown number of dresses in my closet … without needing to pair them with tights (because let’s be honest there are few clothing items worse than tights).

I am a fan of summer, I do not think there is a person in this world who will dispute that. My friend and I used to spend our University study sessions joking around how we were island girls and the cold was just not for us (this was done with a coffee in hand staring at the massive snow piles). This year, I am back in Calgary for the first full winter in years and without a trip to somewhere warm at that. Previously, I was away at school in Vancouver and before that in Nova Scotia, so the extreme cold was something both myself and my body forgot about completely.
