It seems as soon as school starts there is a sudden crispness in the air as school buses drive past the house and as the girls and I watch all the kids walking home from a day at school. The excitement and anticipation of starting a new year, with new clothes, new classes and reuniting with new and old friends is apparent on their faces. In the distant I can hear the whistles and the calling out of plays at a football practice nearby and while making a quick trip to the store I walk past isles full of fall colors, decorations and with the scent of cinnamon and apple cider. Through all of this I find myself reminiscing of past Septembers and how each one was a start of something new in my life. Even though I am no longer in school I still feel some kind of feeling of a fresh starts and excitement of watching my girls experience similar things. One of which being my oldest daughter starting Preschool on Tuesday. I’m so excited for her to learn new things and make new friends, but like most mothers out there I feel something pulling at my heart strings from it all. I can’t even imagine what I’m going to do when I have to send her off to Kindergarten or 1st grade!
So to celebrate the fast approaching fall and welcome in September with all it’s fun colors, activities and new beginnings we thought we’d do a Friday Finds around the month of September! I’m pretty excited about some of the finds myself!
First off I think this printable by Colette from “My Computer is a Canvas” sums up all the wonderful things about September perfectly!
Next, I think Lauren Conrad is a genius for her post on “10 September Style Tips“. She has some great tips on transitioning some of your summer clothing to work for fall!
Lastly, one of my most favorite and exciting finds is the start of all my TV shows including my absolute favorite, “Parenthood”! Season 6 premiers September 25th! Is anyone else as in love with this show as I am?! I’m so sad this will be the last season.
What’s your favorite thing about September?
