you're a hard act to follow.

Dear September,

Just when you'd settled in nice, with your waves of fall heat, sunflower beams and an abundant apple tree harvest, you've gone and passed the bounty to October.  Thanks for the birthday, I'm very much enjoying being thirty!  I didn't know what fun it was wearing red lipstick until that 12th day, and I definitely never gave myself an excuse to wear cobalt blue and yellow platforms until then!  And thanks for giving us a near-solid month to wear flip-flops, to teach a six year old to ride her bike without training wheels, to enjoy blackberries while waiting for the school bus, and to not have to worry about frizzed-out hair due to the northwest drizzle.  Seriously.

Husband would like to thank you for giving me my groove back. 
He's happy to be eating regularly again.  
Since the temperature has lost its scorch, I've cooked up an old favorite a couple of times and we've been inserting zucchini and soon-to-be pumpkin into everything we can get our hands on.  You make us do things like that.  Speaking of pumpkin--pumpkin spice lattes are back into full effect and we've again made our pumpkin spice Yankee candle part of the family.

You've made quite the perfect segue for October.

Bring on the leaves, cool mornings and that smokey October air to settle us in.  I've got sweaters waiting, boots I've been eyeing, crafts and recipes to whip up, 
all in your name, October!

I am so thrilled that October has arrived!

It sounds like you had a great September!

Isn't The Book Thief the best?!

Beautiful letter...and did you know that you come up on the reading list on the dashboard now with a picture and your proper blog name? If you know how it happened, please's been driving my crazy for months now :)

Katharine--thank you for the good news about showing up as myself with pictures in the feed! I fiddled with my settings a bit--actually, I don't know off hand what I did to make the fabulous change. I'm going to work on it and I'll get back to you!

How funny ~ we also taught our 6 year old to ride her bike without training wheels in September too! It was SO exciting and she got a real confidence boost from it. I SO love Fall....can't wait to hear about your recipes and crafts.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
