Time to transition, August is here


I closed my eyes to soak in the beauty that July offered and suddenly it’s gone.  Now it’s time to welcome August, which I call my transition month.

August is the last summer month and we do not want the fun to end.  We are trying so hard to hold onto those last seasonal experiences.  We know back to school is around the corner. Although we are not ready, for us, parents, we must start planning for the upcoming school year.  We have to make sure our kids have what they need to be successful.  For others, August is probably a transition from summer to fall.   Probably, at the end of the month, some of us will start putting summer clothes away and fall decorations out.

Actually, August is a perfect month to reflect on how we want to end the year.  It’s time to analyze what we have done so far, and what can be done to make the last quarter of the year productive.  It’s not too late to work on all those goals that we have set at the beginning of the year.  While it’s still bright outside, let’s make them happen.  Let’s turn this month into the bridge that takes us from dream to reality.

If you have not done so yet, take some time during this month to reconnect with nature, do something fun, go to a new place, and remember to create some memories.

Have a blessed month of August.


  1. I can’t believe it’s August already! My oldest starts Kindergarten on the 13th and we will be moving NEXT month! Crazy how fast time flies. <3 Such beautiful photos by the way!

  2. I definitely feel like August is a transition month, but that probably has something to do with the kids going back to school. Their schedule seems to dictate how I feel about various times of year.

  3. I don’t know how it’s already August! My oldest starts kinder on the 20th and he’s so excited. Of course, in south Texas, our transition month from summer to fall doesn’t happen until at least October!

  4. August is always a turning point. The last month of summer, the last chance to get things done, to fullfill the plans you had for summer. It is valid for me as well.

  5. I can’t believe we are already in the last month of summer! I like this idea, though . . . it’s the perfect time to get my goals in order for the rest of the year before the dreary weather sets in again.

  6. This year is passing so fast. I love my days at the beach so I am sad to see summer come to a close, but I welcome fall and festival season. August is a great month for personal reflections and transitions.

  7. Interesting take on August, and I can totally see where you’re coming from. Usually, by the time August comes around, we feel the cooler evenings, and think of autumn. But it’s been a crazy hot summer this year that I feel stuck in mid year!

  8. August really is a fascinating month. I happen to have the entire month free, so I’m using my time to really work ahead and get everything prepared for the year ahead. It’s a perfect time to work hard since everyone is on vacation.

  9. Girl yes!! August came on the fly this year! So fast. We have a bunch of August birthdays too so it’s always a month for change and reflection!

  10. I agree with you when you said August is a perfect month to reflect on how we want to end the year… It’s a wonderful reflective time before we start another season and get in touch with our goals for the year. Hope you had a wonderful year yet dear!

  11. Happy post! We are delighted to be doing just this at the moment as you mentioned …”take some time during this month to reconnect with nature, do something fun, go to a new place, and remember to create some memories…” This August, slow travelling in Himalayas, we are seeing how different the monsoon here is!

  12. Wow! Your Pictures are just awesome! And I agree. It is a good time to reflect because we are already halfway through the year. We can already gauge what we’ve accomplished and what still needs to be done. Great post!

  13. I never thought of it like that. August is really the month when we should reflect on how we’re gonna end the year. I going to start try finish up my goals before the year ends. thanks.

  14. So far, August had been a pretty hectic month for us. This week is no different. We are going out everyday because of my daughter’s activities. And on the weekend, we are going to have a birthday outing for the little one. I have to pack!

  15. Beautiful post! I really like the idea of planning for how we want to end the year – I have a few changes coming up, and its good to think about how it can change the next 6 months!
