Hey there, September! My favorite month of the year, for so many reasons. The promise of cooler, crisper weather, summer gradually being swept up and turned into autumn, leaves ever so slowly – and then suddenly overnight – bursting with color and displaying their final show of beauty, the start of pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon season, packing away shorts and bathing suits and replacing them with cardigans and flannel, golden sunsets and slow mornings, fall festivals, crock-pot dinners, cozy nights in… I could go on for ages.
As much as I’m looking forward to the travel and many, many events we have planned this month (it’s always such a busy one!), I also cannot wait to settle back into home for a bit at month’s end to wrap up some of our biggest house projects – and hopefully get some relaxing, personal time in, too.
My wishlist this month contains all of the things that would make being at home for the start of the autumn season comfy and lush in my book.
What are your favorite things about September, and what’s on your wishlist for making it extra special this year?
