#FBF – Summer At A Glance

     As much as I would like to hold out hope that my September will be filled with days of sunshine and cool breezes, I am slowly being forced to accept that fall is here. Already there are sidewalks dusted with the shades of the chillier air and light jacket weather – and then came the 60º mornings well past 10 a.m. requiring an extra layer.

     While I’ll be milking the last few weeks of summer-esque day time hours cramming in as much last minute bucket list activities, it is with a smile and a small tear that I review my summer at a glance.

     This year I must say I had a blast discovering things, making new memories and finding adventure with the Mr. and my friends and wrapped it all up with a little travel, (post about that coming soon).

     Although I was not as diligent with my posts during the peak of the season I did cover some pretty fun stuff in my Weekly Rewinds.

     If you didn’t catch some of the major hits, here’s a brief recap:

Apple Music

     Apple Music Launched to the expected an fare and buzz of it’s loyal client base – but with some push back from the likes of Taylor Swift about paying artists during the app’s “3 -month free trial period”.

     Governor’s Ball Music Festival 2015 was yet another epic success as part of the massive lineup of summer concert series that took NYC by storm.
