hello, goodbye // link-up

Nestful of LOve

hello August, goodbye July!

Here's another fun link-up I am excited to join!

Allison from Nestful of Love hosts this link-up,
inviting bloggers to list what they are saying hello and goodbye to at the start of the month.

goodbye to the fantasy that the NW can actually stay dry all summer,
hello to the first wet day of the summer

goodbye to a free weekend all month
hello to bridal showers, baby showers, weddings, and baptisms, and lots of flying

goodbye to wasting time online,
hello to reading a new book (a biography about missionary Mary Slessor)

goodbye to the good ol' USA in 2.5 weeks,
hello to London, Paris, and Cote d'Azur!

goodbye to studying travel books, planning itineraries, & dreaming of Europe,
hello to experiencing new sights, scents, & sounds!
Paris
Oxford

{   goodbye to last year's Europe memories from July '12,
hello to making new memories in Europe in August!!  }

    1. Yes it is! I was hanging out with siblings at my parent's house and we all looked outside in utter disbelief when we heard that dreaded, but oh-so-familiar sound of raindrops ... It is too soon for the sunny days to end! I actually wore boots yesterday. It was really, really weird! haha
