September is here. The kids are back to school. Back to structured days, routines and fall sports and apple orchards. Much as I hate to see an end to carefree summer days, I do welcome the predictability of the school year. September is a great time of year to take long walks and enjoy the stillness in nature that comes with early fall. The sunlight takes on a warmer hue and there is a definite tinge of coolness when in a shady spot. Gone is the morning chatter of the birds, replaced with quiet rustling as they gather together preparing for their annual migration. The leaves are slowly turning and the trees will soon be ablaze with color. This is a great time of year to organize around the home, clean out a closet, let go of some clutter. This month look for my favorite fall recipes. Grab a sweater, leave the ear buds at home and get outdoors and enjoy the show!
