Labor Day sneaked up on us.

We fell asleep last night with the windows open, and this morning, there was a chill in the house. I know I’m not supposed to say it, but I think something is changing.

When I think about this summer, these are the pictures I want to think about. They’re what this summer felt like.

I’ve taken a lot of ferry rides.

I’ve eaten a lot of melon. I’ve eaten a lot of strawberries.

I’ve eaten fried chicken and lemon icebox cake and zucchini. I’ve been eaten by a lot of mosquitos.

I’m ready.

Happy Labor Day.
