Summer 2012, Instagramm’d

So long, Summer 2012.

Although the summer technically doesn’t come to a close for another 3 weeks, once school starts and September rolls around, the season is effectively over.

Autumn’s always been my favorite season and I’m excited for cooler weather and the changing of the leaves but the memories of this summer are still so sweet and fresh in my heart and mind. These twelve Instagram images encapsulate the summer that was.

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever in the world you are.

I’ve always wanted to live in Seattle. Crossing my fingers and toes I can make this dream happen one day soon.

What’s summer without a local fireman’s fair and rides I’m way too old for?
