September–A Season Of Change
September is a magical time of year! Summer is winding down and the pace of life seems to slow a bit. Vacation getaways are replaced by lazy Saturday mornings and weekend road trips. The days are still warm but there is a recognizable chill in the morning air because fall is fast approaching.
This is my favorite time of year to go thrifting, visit the farmers market and take walks in the park. I’m hoping to do all of these things in abundance and enjoy each day as it comes. We still have a lot to do to get settled into your new house into our new house but my focus this month will be to get my office together. I’ll be sharing my design plan for this space later this week so stay tuned.
While I’m enjoying the beauty of September and the coming of fall, I also have the holidays on my mind. I’ve starting flushing out my holiday decorating plans and a sneak peek of my color theme is included in the images below.
It’s going to be a busy month but I plan on making the most of the glorious month.
While we’re easing into a new month, here are some fun facts about September that I thought you might enjoy. Cheers to the month ahead and the adventures that await.
