10 Quotes to Celebrate the Last Days of Summer

Something is unsettling about August and all the change it can bring. It’s the time of year when you begin to notice the back-to-school sales have started, the days are getting shorter, and the beach days are dwindling. Whether you are a recent high school graduate going into college or a high school student dreading the upcoming school year, a teacher, or a parent, the end of summer blues is pretty typical. The end of summer can spark its own version of the “Sunday Scaries.”

No matter how you feel about August, it’s here, which means fall is just around the corner – which is why I love these ten end-of-summer quotes. They inspire me to appreciate every minute of the summer season and push me into fall feeling renewed.
