I love September.
I love August too, because it’s a time of new beginnings. There is nothing I don’t like about the start of school, and before you think I’m being funny, I’ll tell you as a child I loved it too.
August is exciting and crazy and sometimes hard…saying goodbye to summer, and hello to a new routine and all the hoopla that goes with that.
September I settle in.
And settle down.
And enjoy the quiet.
I love taking walks with Patrick and it’s just SO beautiful out.
Everytime I’m outside I just feel so grateful for my life and how blessed I am and how lucky I am to have a loving husband and five children who I hope feel at home everytime they walk in that door.
The sun is shining, the school busses are roaring by, leaves are crunching, there’s a quiet breeze and a stillness in the air.
I’d make September last forever if I could.
