Am I the only one who feels like summer is being rushed away already?
At a visit to my local crafts store last week, I was bombarded with fake leaves in the deep shades of autumn and the scent of cinnamon spiced pine cones.
Just step inside any local department store and you will find back-to-school supplies already being shoved into our faces.  
They all seem to be jeering at me... Tick-tock, tick-tock. Your summer is almost up!

And granted, my son starts back to school on August 14th (August 14th, you all) so maybe I shouldn't be so bitter about the whole back-to-school supplies displays.
But come on!  What ever happened to school starting back in September? Do you all remember that? 
And technically speaking, I have to point out that we actually have until September 22nd before summer officially gives way to fall.
So can we just all slow our roll here for a second?

This Frozen Lemonade Colada is the perfectly frosty way to savor summer a little longer... with tart lemon and creamy coconut, every sip is like prolonging those summer days for just one more minute. And I will take every extra sun kissed, summery minute that I can get my hands on (or lips on, in this case)... ;)

One sip of this icy Frozen Lemonade Colada is like getting a taste of a lemonade stand and the beach all at once.
How can a frozen cocktail possibly get any more summery than that? ;)

Do you also feel like summer just began and is going to be over much too quickly?
How are you planning on savoring those last little bits of summer before they are gone?
