This week’s Photo Friday theme is “Ride.”

I took this shot at Septemberfest in Schaumburg, IL. this past year. It totally reminds me of going to carnivals with my sister when I was young and how I was afraid of the rides (especially the fun slide…) Fast forward 20+ years and I can’t get enough of carnival rides and roller coasters– the scarier, the better!!!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!

Nothing screams summer like a carnival! I took these photos over labor day weekend which is the unofficial end of summer. The kids are back in school, weather is getting cooler, football season has started, leaves are just starting to change, and the days are getting noticeably shorter.

I am looking forward to changing leaves, to photographing icon autumn images, to a craft fair that I will be participating in October (details to come shortly), daily pumpkin spice lattes. I am looking forward to cooler weather, and being able to wear sweaters and be comfy. I am looking forward to my annual trip to Goebberts Pumpkin Farm (to liberate some pumpkins) and a trip to Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford. Oh, and my birthday. (in 9 days, but who’s counting?)

While i do look forward to fall and all of it’s cool weather and pumpkin filled glory, I can’t help but get a little sad this time of year. Soon, it will be getting dark at 5pm (and earlier!) and then the snow, followed by the seemingly endless darkness (I know, I know, dramatic much?)

That just means I better enjoy the short autumn season while it’s here…
