Sweet September

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that September is the new black.  No?  How about September is the new January? 

I feel like September is a fresh start.  Just like you make New Years Resolutions in January, September is a time for renewal too.  Sure the ease of summer is over but there's something refreshing about getting into a routine.  I kind of like knowing that x, y, and z are happening and by that I mean I like that preschool is happening and therefore so are early bedtimes.  I kid, I kid.  Kind of. 

But there's something about the cooler air, the windows open, the new fall clothes, the thrill of going apple picking and hayride riding, and earlier nights that make me feel like a new person.  September is usually still warm enough to wear your maxi dresses by day but chilly enough to snuggle up in a hoodie come nightfall.  It's pretty much having your cake and eating it too, the best of both worlds. 

I know it's only been September for 12 days but in less than two weeks I almost feel like I've become a new person. I feel like I've become more laid back.  Which is weird considering we are actually on a schedule now.  We now have preschool three days a week {up one day from last year} and Jimmy teaches two nights a week on top of working 40+ hours.  We have a lot of birthdays, family events and not to mention holidays but something about all of this makes me feel calm.  I like knowing what's coming up and I like having things to do. Call me crazy,

I feel like, come September, I'm ready for change.  Whether it be fall fashion, a darker hair color, new recipes, different scents, I get excited for it all.  Fall is a time to try new things and, in a way, feels like the new year again.  I'm not going to go all crazy and make a resolution or anything BUT I might change up a few things, to keep it fresh.

As much as I love summer I do welcome fall with open arms.  While we have more to do on a day to day basis we also slow down a bit.  We snuggle more.  We talk more.  We listen more. We are more intentional with our time.  And that will always make me love fall, just a little more.

September has been good to us so far.  We've gone apple picking, made cider, had our fall family pictures taken, had a bonfire with s'smores, and we've already eaten LOTS of chili.  So I guess, maybe that whole thing about fall slowing us down isn't true.  But one thing is for sure and that's that we've spent a lot of time together, as a family, and it doesn't get much better than that.
