August — if you live in the U.S., is a month full of days at the beach, vibrant sunsets, the green glow of fire flies, and choirs of cicadas. It’s also our last month of summer before we head back to school or work and march slowly into Autumn.
So its time, to gather ye rosebuds. Take this last chance to close your eyes and listen to distant lawnmowers, soar from the high-dive, sleep in the sun, chase the sunset, and steal that Summer kiss that you’ll never forget. Here’s to late Summer and all of its wonderful last chances!
