The day September starts is unofficially when summer ends for me. This summer was one of the best and I'm sad to see it go. However, last year we kind of just skipped right over September - we got married at the start, we're away on our honeymoon for two weeks and got back for about the final week of the month so I'm looking forward to enjoying this preview to fall.
I took a little break from my month ahead posts during the summer months but thought I'd get back into them now that a new season is upon us.
Looking Forward To This Month…
College Football: Three more days until Penn State's first game and I can't wait to have my Saturdays revolve around game time again. My parent's have a getaway home in State College and we love spending as many game days there as our schedule will allow. Tailgating is hands down my favorite fall activity… more to come on game days soon.
Wedding Season: Similar to last year, our wedding season is just about to kick off. I'm looking forward to the start to this fun and eventful time this month with weddings to follow each of the following months.
Down Time: This summer has been go go go all sumer long (isn't it suppose to be though?!) and I'm really looking forward to some nights where we get home from work with nothing to do, a lazy weekend thrown in there and some time to just be lazy.
Barre: I loved the last barre class that I took but that it was a slight drive away (I like my workouts to be as quick and easy as possible) but over the summer I found a studio just down the road. The only problem was I could never find a good time to go. I'm ready to change that this month.
Fall Decorating: Last year I got the first of our fall decorations (very few) and this year I had a 20% off sale/regular items at Michael's so I snagged a few pieces for mostly 50% off and I'm ready to get those all out on display.
Closet Clean Out: I like to try to stay ahead of the season change and get my clothes switched out a little bit before the weather actually turns so I see what I have and am ready. It's been a few months since I did some purging and I'm ready to get a couple bags together for good will.
Keeping it very simple this month after a busy summer season.
Like every month, just a few simple, easy, fun things to add to the month ahead.
Happy September! Happy Fall!
