5 things that still surprise me about August in Saratoga..

I LOVE when the horses arrive in Saratoga, but every year I always forget and then am surprised again by a few certainties of the season, and this August is no exception. 

1. Things I never thought I'd be able to say.. 'I have multiple fascinators in my closet'.  It's not just a race track phenomenon, we are all really doing this. And I'm loving it. 

2. It is totally ok to drink your breakfast. Whether you're headed out for a day at the track or have just arrived at a luncheon, no one is going to bat an eye when you order a bloody. The only problem becomes ...

3. No seriously, there is REALLY, REALLY no place to park. And yes, you're kind of in a traffic jam right now on lake avenue. A LEGIT traffic jam. 

4. Downtown is packed and you'll go out... and not recognize anyone. It's an anonymity you can only get in August...

5. Nobody loves or appreciates the summer season more than I do, but at the end of the month, I'm always ready for September. 

OK, maybe not THIS happy, but you get the idea..
