Today marks the unofficial last day of summer. I feel like we have lived this summer in a big way-from strawberry jam in June to sweet corn in August; from running barefoot first thing in the (early!) morning to staying up for sunsets in the evening; we’ve eaten too many ice cream cones to count. I’ve forgotten how to use the stove because we have lived by the grill. We’ve gardened and worked in the yard until we had blisters. We have done summer proud, I’d say. This mama is tired! Ready for the cozy days of fall to come.
But for today, here is a photo essay of our summer in Michigan. At the start of this summer I set a personal goal to create one photo each day. Some of these are more “lifestyle” (i.e. how it really happened/looked) and some of these are more art (how it felt/how I saw things as an artist). I shared one photo each day on my Photography page on Facebook but wanted to have all of my favorites in one place now that the project is coming to a close!
