Summer Friday (Bonfires)

Here we are, our last summer Friday.  And I'm going out with what I think is the absolute perfect end to any summer day, a bonfire.  In Michigan, bonfires are synonymous with summer and after spending our first summer out of the city in eight years, I got some of those childhood feelings of Michigan summers back in my life.  So grab some s'more fixens and take advantage cause after this, it's football, fashion, boots, sweaters and apple cider doughnuts, so enjoy it while it lasts!  Happy long weekend!!

Summer Friday (Bike Rides)

Sometimes when I picture summer bike riding, I don't even see my own memories, I picture the scene below from one of my favorite movies, Now and Then.  This scene makes me as happy as if it were my own childhood.  I lived on a main road, so was never free to hop on my bike and head to my friend's, but alas, I have made up for all the bike riding and more than I missed as a kid riding around New York City.  Still to this day, come October, as the mornings get too chilly to hop on the bike, I think head to next spring and this song plays in my head and I am happy.
