La Rentrée

The transition from summer holidays back to everyday life has been made easier this year thanks to the significant drop in temperature — some of my fall purchases are already in play. Even though I no longer have small children heading back to school next week — and I work from anywhere — the feeling of re-entry is still very real. It’s been a fun summer that seemingly whizzed by, but as my daughter was ordering books last night for her fall term I felt a spark of excitement for the upcoming change of seasons and scenery.

  • I know what you mean, I always think of September as the start of a new year.

  • It’s funny how no matter how long (or short) any season seems to be, we are always ready for the next one when it comes along…

  • I have an academic job, so have been in meetings and prepping for the past two weeks! I do miss the childhood days when my mom would keep us on the Cape till after Labor Day and we’d get back the day before school started!

  • The Cover rash guard is amazing, an old pair of Frame shorts, and I tied the Kendall Conrad pouch straps so I can wear it over my shoulder.

  • Love this photo! Thank you for validating the “re-entry butterflies” we all still feel this time of year.

  • At our house, fall is also the time when we start having those dreaded recurring dreams: sleeping through final exams or realizing we were signed up for a class which we never attended, opening books but not understanding the language . . . : )))

  • I love this photo so much.

  • Lovely photo.
    Of course, this time of year is US Open time, another reason to feel a little bit excited.

  • I don’t usually comment twice in one post, but I had to laugh at Paula’s comment about the recurring academic failure dreams. I graduated law school in 1982 and I still have these dreams occasionally. Mine are usually of realizing I have a final exam in a math class I enrolled in, but never attended or read the material for. Lol. Also, the picture is so good, I didn’t realize it was Preston herself! Really perfect for this post.
