Oh, hello, September. Where did you come from you sneaky little bugger? Per usual the summer flew by, but I just revisited my summer bucket list and am happy to report that I checked almost every single thing off of it! I hope to do the same this fall.
I’ve always been a homebody, so one of the things I love most about fall is the cozy days and nights at home curled up in blankets with family and friends. So I plan to do a lot of that but also want to get out and explore our new neighborhood as much as possible and show my daughter how fun this season can be.
It is our last week in our Stamford house so it’s going to be very emotional for my whole family. Thinking about the fun fall activities we can do in our new house is a good distraction from all of the change. Beyond the usual pumpkin picking and hayride goals, I have added a few personal goals that I want to accomplish in the next few months that have nothing to do with the season.
I want to continue with my clean swap challenge and add 5 more to the list and be better about gossiping. That might seem random, but I’ll explain more in tomorrow’s post when I announce September’s wellness challenge.
