Well it only seems fitting that I have launched my blog/website in September, this month that truly heralds the start of so many beginnings. If you are a parent you are used to September being full of new beginnings, new firsts. The bittersweet heartache of watching your children step onto a school bus for the first time, or the last, moving off to college or asking for the keys as they slip behind the wheel to drive themselves to school. Another school year, another fresh start, a clean slate.
There is a certain stillness in the mornings too that gently heralds the change to come. It is as though nature has taken a collective breath holding onto the last of summers’ sweetness only to finally exhale into autumn.
Roadside stands are brimming with produce, tomatoes, squash of every kind and…..the true symbol of early fall….pumpkins.
In this month I will try to inspire you with fall decor, bringing some of the last of that ‘outdoorness’ inside. Look for recipes for the last of the summer bounty and some ideas of what to do on those less than perfect days – organizing, cleaning out a closet, maybe a project to tackle.
Time to get out the sweaters and embrace the season. Welcome to Home.
