As the sweltering days of summer fade into the distance (thank goodness), I wanted to take a quick look back over a handful of snapshots, and capture the memories before they disappear under a pile of autumn leaves.

I’m sure this cold snap won’t last long, and soon we’ll be complaining about the humidity once again, but meanwhile it’s nice to look back on warmer weeks.
