a kiss to summer

whip out your hoddies, leggings, and scarves! everyone on campus today was raving about the arrival of fall. although I love the changing of leaves, tailgating, and turkeyday, i have a deep and passionate hatred for fall's ugly neighbor- winter. the only thing charming about the chilling season is the beautiful months that follow. i guess i will just have to sip on a sunrise martini at forge wishing i was poolside. summer, i miss you always.
