It is September! If you see someone skipping down the sidewalk kicking their heels and laughing with uncontrollable delight, that’s probably me. 🙂 No I’m not crazy. I’m just excited! I can’t help it. I always get giddy when September comes around. This is the beginning of my favorite time of year – Autumn. Oh sweet bliss. Pumpkins, pumpkin chai, pumpkin tea, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin pie, pumpkin kisses, pumpkin butter, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin soup, pumpkin beer, pumpkin candles, pumpkin cake, pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins.
It’s not pumpkin time yet, I know, but soon it will be and I LOVE it! (Although, you should see my kitchen because it is decorated with pumpkins and Fall leaves year-round.)
September is the gateway month to the best part of the year. There is a delicious stillness as the land begins preparations for its Winter repose. Soon the trees will don their Autumnal robes and the fields of corn will rattle like old bones in the brisk evening breeze. Cooler temperatures also means it will soon be time to break out the turtlenecks, the pullovers, the fleece vests and my grandma’s goose down comforter. No more Summer clothes, I can dress in my beloved layers again! And oh how I live for those Autumn evenings by the fire sipping Fireside Coffee and reading a book while snuggled up in a cozy afghan.
Bring it on oh beautiful September! I am more than ready for you! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
And of course, I cannot let the first of September pass without playing the song, “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire. It’s just such a fun, lively song. I’ve always liked it.
Enjoy and HAPPY SEPTEMBER!!!
