Goodbye sweet summer

Sunday marked the last sunday of the summer and today marks the first day of fall!  Although summer is my favorite time of year I have to admit fall is beautiful. The weather is slowly changing, making mornings a little bit chillier and the sun set earlier. This is the reason for the amazing assortment of leaf colors. And even though fall time brings new memories such as football games, halloween and thanksgiving, I won't forget the amazing memories summer 2010 brought!
I started my summer off with an incredible accomplishment. I graduated from the University of Utah with a mass communication degree at the age of 20! Many have asked me how I was able to do this and it was because I finished my associate's degree in high school, no i'm not an overachiever despite what everyone thinks haha!

After graduation I was off to Lake Mead for Sigma Chi's annual "kick of the summer" trip. It was my second year going and I had a great time! All the sororities from the U go and meet the Sigma Chi boys who have planned the whole week. We spend our time camping on the beach, hanging out on the houseboats, boating and bonding with each other. Even though I graduated, I am definitely going next summer :)

If I were to write about every detail of my summer I would be writing for hours, so I'll just say it was filled with long nights, barbecues, birthdays, bees games, boating, and other sun-filled activities! Oh...and I met a cute boy (more about that later).

Kelly and I hiked to the top of mount Olympus...a total of 7 hours

And the cherry on top of my magnificant summer was a trip to Lake Powell! Greg, the cute boy I mentioned earlier, invited me to spend a week in Powell with his family and it was the best time ever! Not only was his family so welcoming, but I did so many fun things! I learned how to surf behind the boat and caught some air wakeboarding, built a sand castle, slept under the stars and carved names into rock. Plus I realized I have the best boyfriend ever :)


So goodbye sweet summer, you were good to me and left me with amazing memories. I hope fall is just as great and I'll see you next year!
