My darlings, Summer is practically over and I hate to think it. Though I adore Fall (as I do all the seasons) I hate to see this Summer be gone...it's been so perfect! I would say it has been the best Summer yet, but Erika and I agree we always say that to which I reply, "it must mean our lives are just getting better!"
So much has happened this Summer, though nothing terribly big...just lovely simple things. I've grown so close with many people, Erika and her family included, which may seem shocking to think of us getting any closer, but we did! And, as you know I've found out the magical news of my going to the Harry Potter theme park in October...which will be bliss when I go, I assure you.
The weather was perfect all this year. I don't even know how to put into words everything that has happened this Summer! But it most definitely has all been brilliant. I've been outside almost all day long reading, painting, taking pictures, which is just what I had planned to do before Summer came along so I feel quite happy.
Besides simple occasions that were lovely-two excellent films came out this Summer: Toy Story 3 and Inception. Both drastically different but both very brilliant. Toy Story 3 was all that I, and even everyone, had hoped for. I've grown up on all Pixars-but most especially the Toy Stories. I remember watching them at my grandma's wonderfully cosy lake house with Erika and her brother, Ian and my brother and sister Aaron and Hannah. It just always brings back such memories. And all of us going to see it (along with some close friends) at midnight was just so surreal and wonderful. And Inception, oh Inception how I LOVE YOU!!!!! Christopher Nolan is a genius. It is an incredible film. The cinematography, the music (gives me chills), the acting, the costume design, everything is impeccable.
Summer is truly a magical season and, though it is still not completely over, I look forward to its coming again next year! I hope all of you were just as blessed by God with a wonderful Summer as Erika and I were. Enjoy this gorgeous weather--take a walk, draw, paint, read--whatever tickles your fancy! :)
With lots of love,
