You guys, IT’S MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR!!!!!
I know, I know, I know…I say this every single September 1st, but I just LOVE this day. I love everything about this time of year (today through December 31st) and flipping my calendar from August over to September just fills me with JOY.
From the weather changing to the leaves, pumpkins, football, Halloween, shorter days, cooler weather, cozy sweaters, hearty fare, family gatherings, holidays, twinkle lights, carols, favorite movies, parties, staying in, celebrating…the list is just so long.
The last two nights in a row, my family of six has enjoyed our evenings at local high school football games (first the freshman game and then last night, the varsity game), and one of my FAVORITE things to do is be in the car at night with all five of my favorite people hearing them laugh, discuss and banter about the game on the way home. I love that we were all there. Together. In the same place. No one was watching TV or looking at their phone. We were just outside, with our community, having fun. I just love it so much.
Needless to say when you put my favorite day of the year on a FRIDAY, there is just even more to celebrate. Plus bonus…our kids have a four day weekend in celebration of Labor Day, sooooo it’s not even a school day today 🙂 .
How’s a girl to celebrate?
With her annual…
