September

It is so nice to welcome September.  Autumn is my favorite season, and while it isn't here yet, I feel like September is the signal that it is coming.  Here's a short list of the things I'm looking forward to.

1.  Hot beverages on cool days.  My idea of perfection is a warm drink in my hand on a sunny day with a crisp breeze where it is cold enough outside to leave a chill except for the steamy cup keeping you warm.

2.  New scarves and jeans.  Nothing says fall to me like the idea of buying new jeans and pairing them with some bright scarves.  I also look forward to wearing cardigans again too.  I love sweaters, but where I'm living sweaters start closer to winter than in fall.  Before I start any of that shopping though,  I could really use to shed a few lbs.

3.  Darker toe nail polish.  I am definitely planning on getting a pedicure in a fall color.

4.  Cooking and baking with apples.  I have a few favorite recipes to make with apples.  Sure I can make them all year round, but it's more fun in the fall.  I'm just jealous of my family since they can pick their own apples.

5.  The rich, bright colors.  I love seeing all the orange, red, and yellow around.  While the changing leaves aren't quite as beautiful down here as in New England, there is still so much beauty to be seen.

6.  All the upcoming holidays.  Ryan and Sean are both autumn babies, so it's an exciting time in our house.  Plus there is taking the boys trick-or-treating which I cannot wait for.  Then my favorite--Thanksgiving.  I feel like fall is a time when things settle down and families come together.

I'm so happy fall is on the way.

I'm so happy for fall too! It is my favorite! You are totally right about the toe nail polish. I just changed mine to a tangerine (kind of brighter/orangey red)...not quite the deeper fall color, but definitely out of the summer pinks! YAY!

(I also love that Lucy is a fall baby)
