I visited a small town carnival last weekend, where I enjoyed some of the best parts of summer: warm nights, live music and funnel cakes. I am not embarrassed to admit I ate almost an entire funnel cake by myself. It was delicious; no regrets!

Happy end of summer, blogosphere!


Hot Town, Summer in the City

A long, hot and dry summer is finally ending. The back-to-school department at Target is stocked with erasers and shiny pens, and the very first hint of decaying leaves is in the air.

Iowa endured a long drought this season. Some recent rain has calmed people's nerves but the corn and crops suffered. The grass is trying hard to look green but the patchy yellow spots are apparent.

I am making the best of it and wearing only the simplest outfits in the most breathable fabrics. Giant sunglasses are non-negotiable in this heat.

Stay cool and happy end of summer!
