For Seattle summer is quickly coming to a close. Earlier this week it started to cool down and the trees already started turning.
Fall is on its way!
To be honest, I love fall. The colors, scarves, coffee, and comfy clothes!
But I always miss the fresh fruit of summer. Along with the joys of a relaxed summer evening, beer in hand.
This time of year is also always full of so many changes. Or maybe that’s just me… I think its the start of a new school year in the air. It seems to awaken and inspire new goals and changes for the coming year.
For me this next week is a whole new chapter. A new job. A new house. Whole new set of responsibilities, but all with good intentions.
To celebrate all these changes and the close of a beautiful couple of weeks, I mixed up one of Joy the Baker’s smoothies into this Summer Fruit Smoothie. It makes enough for two so keep one in the fridge for the next morning or share!
