Freedom Friday: Last Days of Summer Edition

Hello Everyone,

As the temperature cools down, we know that summer is coming to an end. Summer is my favorite season.  However, I was disappointed this year.  The humidity, allergens and scorching temperatures made it difficult to fully enjoy this year’s season (at least for me).  I am actually happy to pull out the funky boots and booties, stylish sweaters and hip scarves!  As you can tell, I LOVE fall fashions.  So this weekend, let’s make it count.   Before too long, when leaving the office, there will be no more  sun ray’s to greet you.  Everybody is trying to get it in this weekend.  There so so many events to choose from this weekend.  Enjoy! 🙂

Speaking of fashion, this evening is Fashion’s Night Out in Georgetown. Over 80 Georgetown stores, restaurants, and salons open for extended hours and host splurge-inspiring fashion events and promotions for the evening.
