this is how things get stuck in our heads! we kind of grew up saying summer was June July and August, and Fall was Sept Oct Nov, or when school started, or after labor day when we were officially not allowed to wear white pants.
Imagine telling a woman in 1837 that one day women could put on just two layers of clothing... underpinnings and jeans and a t-shirt.
She'd faint, but maybe that would be from her corset.
Look at this video of all the layers expected in 1837... OMG
Our forecast in Aurora CO this week is hot. Hothothot. highs of 86-94 plus sun all week. (pant pant)
Looking forward to Sept 23rd
I stopped a woman on the streets of Breckenridge Sunday and asked her to take a photo of her haircut. It was adorable and cut way up in back, off her neck. How I envied that! I asked where she got it done, she humorously answered from a foul-mouthed hair cutter in Colorado Springs, and our conversation took off. we parted and about 4 blocks later I exclaimed to dh, " I didn't get the salon name!!!" of course we didn't see her again.
Her words, "it's perfect for thin straight hair, and the only style that looks good on my roundish face"
in honor of the traditional American end of summer... enjoy norah jones andd summertime
