As much as I am ready for my son to go back to school, I am not ready for summer to end. This was my summer of freedom and definitely my most favorite summer in recent memory.
Even with hockey season approaching (insert emoji heart here), I’m just not ready for my summer to come to a close, yet the clock keeps moving me along.
Sometimes I really don’t like clocks.
I decided to round-up the best of summer 2017 for today’s Friday Favorites in my effort to focus on the positive, wonderful moments from this summer.
Foxwoods Road Trip
My summer officially started for me at the end of June when we went to Foxwoods with a stop on the way out east to the North Fork wineries.
It feels like YESTERDAY that we stopped for breakfast at the diner for my favorite pancakes, passed through the wineries, and ate a whole lot of good food at Foxwoods.
Heather was here!
Who remembers when Heather was here in July? Our fun was weeks ago already and I miss her. Lately I spend my time thinking about how I am escaping to Florida for a quick weekend. I am currently searching flights in another window as I type this post.
Why take the ferry when you can walk to Fire Island?!
I wrote about my love for my favorite outdoor dining spots this summer and I will really miss eating outdoors as it gets colder.
We still have a month left though before some of the outdoor dining spots close for the season and View, which is my new favorite restaurant, is open all year.
Training With Laura:
I was lucky enough to receive a month of coaching from Laura this summer as a birthday gift. She is the greatest at creating training plans and I love the workouts she puts together for me. While I don’t know when I will next train for a race, I can tell you that I wouldn’t dream of doing it without her. And, lately I can tell that my pace, strength and ability feel stronger across the board which I attribute to the workouts she scheduled for me during those four weeks of summer training.

Regardless of season, I am just not ready to put away my favorite glitter sandals from this summer. Thank goodness it doesn’t get too cold for a couple more months!
