September has always been my favourite month of the year. I love how the air begins to feel different as we move into a new season. The cool, fresh misty mornings and a particular golden light that heralds the beginning of autumn. Favourite warm clothing and beloved blankets start to make a reappearance. September brings me a back-to-school kind of feeling, a sense of beginning still ingrained on my mind from childhood: the desire and energy to set to work on new things.
This September also brought the discovery of a new beach, and magical mornings in the woods where the spiders and mist put on a show especially for us. A peaceful holiday at home, a dog beginning to settle and one rather spiffing birthday cake.
