Hello dry skin and chapped lips.
Hello extra blankets, hot chocolates and cuddling in front of a fireplace.
Hello close toed shoes, layered shirts and jackets in the back of my closet I almost forgot about.
Hello school projects and new friends.
Hello Clam Chowder.
Hello golden leaved trees and bare branches.
Hello Dad and Keeper counting days until the lifts open in the mountains.
Hello Halloween and Thanksgiving and Family Get-Togethers.
Goodbye tanned skin, painted toenails, and tank tops paired with shorts.
Goodbye warm sandy beaches and lazy Saturdays swimming in the lake.
Goodbye summer camp.
Goodbye to the annoying monotonous sound of the fan because my room is too hot for sleep.
Goodbye green plants.
Goodbye long hours of daylight.
Goodbye thunderstorms, lightning and fireworks.
Goodbye flip-flops, sandals, and running through the grass in barefeet.
As much as I'm going to miss Summer, hello and welcome Fall.
