Why I love September

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

There are many things I love about every month, but September seems to be one of my favorites.  Could it be because there are changes in the air?  Maybe!

September is the start of college football.  There is never a question about what we will be doing on a Saturday during September.  If we aren't at the game, we are watching it on TV.  And I seem to scream and shout at the game just as much as the others around me.  Competitive - you better believe it's in my genes.  

The start of a new season, Fall.  Now, while the south really doesn't have the traditional four seasons... there is a hint of Fall.  The leaves start to change color and fall from the trees.  The breeze can put a chill in the air and give you a slight moment of wanting a blanket.  

The things we smell even change.  We go from beach and fresh picked flower scented candles to warm apple pie and pumpkin spice scented candles.

The decor even has a different hue.  It's now burnt orange, browns, deep reds (my favorite) and yellows.  The flowers change from gerber daisies to mums and you might even see a scarecrow or two.    

Sitting outside doesn't require you to perspire.  Evenings at home are now enjoyable and the really chilled nights might even get you wanting to light up the fire pit.  I'm hoping we are able to do this soon.  I love a fireplace, whether gas logs or the traditional wood burning fireplace.  Reminds me of spending nights in front of my parent's fireplace watching TV.  

If you can't tell by my tone, I'm one happy girl.  Not only do I have one of my favorite months here, I get to spend it with the love of my life and my best friend, Terry.  
Happy September, y'all!
