The Kentucky State Fair started yesterday. School starts back next week here in Louisville. The signs are all around us. Summer is coming to a close. It won’t be long before the leaves start turning and falling, and fall will be upon us. After that comes the end of the year holidays and we’ll be in winter, anxiously awaiting the return of spring.
There’s a tendency to be nostalgic this time of year, partly because we remember the feelings of freedom that summer brought to us as children when we felt released from the rigors of school. As adults, summer doesn’t offer quite the same feeling of freedom, but the warm weather does give us opportunities for vacations and weekend trips. The approach of fall means these activities will be coming to an end. We all get a little wistful about that.
Anticipation also plays a big part in our nostalgia at this time of year. We’re beginning to approach the time of year when we spend a lot of time with our families and friends celebrating the holidays. (Face it. They’ll be here before you know it.) Everyone has so many memories connected to this time of year.
The best way to deal with feeling nostalgic is to give into the feeling with a trip to YesterNook, a place that brings back many memories for many people. For some of our friends, the kids going back to school means more time to make a leisurely stroll down memory lane in your favorite local vintage store. Why not take advantage of it?
We’ll be looking forward to your visit.
