I am a fan of September. I like savouring the last days of summer as they slowly ease their way into the first days of fall. I enjoy shopping for school supplies and imagining "bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils."
I am not going to be discouraged anymore by this jetlag and my enormous to-do list. Instead I'm going to smile and forge on. I'm going to take my kids to the park to run in the late summer sun. I'm going to sort through thousands of photos of our English holiday and reminisce about the wonderful places we went, the things we saw and experienced. And I'm going to share it all with you in the days to come. Oh, and I should probably work on organizing my front entry way too, to make my life easier when we're all back at work and school next week. I'd like it to look like this! It never will, but it's good to have goals, don't you think?
Happy First Day of September, my dears. It's going to be a good month.
