I really love September.
I’m dying to get out all my fall decorations — the pumpkins, the fall leaves, the Halloween décor, etc. — but I’m trying to resist. September is still technically summer (until Sept 21), and even though it’s a hint of fall, it’s always about 100 degrees here every day.
So I bought this cute pillow last weekend to fulfill my “need to decorate seasonally” but my resistance to putting out pumpkins just yet. (I’ll probably hold out for all of two more weeks — and those pumpkin spice lattes are already calling my name, as is the candy corn — but I’m trying.)
But I really do love September — back-to-school, back-to-routine, back to a sort of comfort of having kids and family close all the time. New pencils, new notebooks, kids going to soccer games on the weekends, football on TV. …
September is a lovely month.
What’s your favorite month of the year?
