I know technically summer is from mid-June to mid-September, but as someone who works in higher education, summer officially starts the day after Commencement and ends the day students move back to campus. I’m already cheating on this post and extended out my “summer” a few weeks because I can—and today is the last official day of summer.
I’m actually sort of excited for fall, mostly because of the cooler weather but also because of all the basic fall things to do as well as the trip Josh and I have planned in October. Here’s to looking back on my summer!
Josh took me to Cooperstown, NY for my birthday to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
We went to the beach one Friday, which was my first time going in a really long time, like years.
Josh and I celebrated our one-year anniversary the only way we know best: day trip adventures.
Some other adventures included another trip to the beach, dinner out, and Brew in the Zoo.
I took myself on my first solo date to a brewery to read.
Josh and I went to our first Hartford Yard Goats game of the season.
Josh and I went to the Springfield Museums and Great Awakening Brewing.
Things not pictured: a Springfield Thunderbirds game, three free music Fridays at the local casino, seeing The Little Mermaid put on by the theater group I volunteer with, getting COVID (although that’s definitely not a highlight of my summer), a surprise birthday party for Josh’s best friend’s wife, and saw Pippin and Mammia Mia! to support a friend from my theater group.
What were some highlights of your summer?
