Changing Seasons

Can you believe that it's almost September? The fact that today is the last day of August blows my mind. Where does the time go?

For me, the back-to-school season has always been so refreshing. September is a great month for change and I'm predicting optimistically that September is going to be MY month. Things are going to happen this September.

But I'm also usually quick to wave off summer and it's hot days and rushed vacations. Today I'm going to be mindful of the end of August, to appreciate these last moments of summer. After all, we have a lot of fall tasks coming up, like prepping the garden for winter, decorating for the new season, preparing for the holidays, getting the house ready for the change in temperatures.

How will you say goodbye to August? I think a proper summery tv marathon and s'mores. After all, it's supposed to rain today here in Seattle. But maybe you'll have popsicles and fly a kite! And what are you looking forward to this fall?
