My favorite months are September, October, November, and December. I like May as well, because by then, I’m ready to be playing outside! But by far, the fall months are like cozy socks to my soul. I just love them and want to slip them on and relish in the warm feeling; I want to savor them.
This year, I have decided to pay more attention to my days, and to savor the new winds, the air cooling, and the freshness of something new; the fall new year. And I’m beginning with September.
September is like January. There is a newness to it, almost more so for me than January. It’s like a fresh start, a new beginning.
I’m already thinking about cardigans and sweaters, cowboy boots and farm days, the fair (where we are sure to put our kids in the annual pig chase), apple pies, and all the wonderful things my town (the coolest small town in America, by the way) has coming up during this delightful month.
Man, I love September.
If you have an affinity for September as I do, then won’t you join me in my new Savoring September Series? We’ll begin on Tuesday, September 3rd. Hope to see you!
