[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ith September upon us, I’m at a complete crossroads! I’m trying to ignore the fact that summer is unofficially over. It’s hard when all I’ve been seeing for the past few weeks are first day of school photos of my friends’ kids splashed all over Facebook and every commercial has been about back-to-school sales and fall fashions. Why am I resisting?
It’s because I’m not ready to deal with the fact that the holidays will soon be upon us. There have already been sightings of holiday décor in certain stores that shall remain nameless (you know who you are)!
If I accept that it is September, it means that Halloween is not far behind, Turkey day is next, the crazy shopping season begins (on whatever day is now Black Friday/Thursday/Wednesday) and you know the rest…
Let’s put the brakes on this right now!
Yes it is September and yes, fall is in the air but, let’s take it one step at a time and enjoy it. We have a full month of the temperatures gradually changing, getting accustom to new daily schedules and routines, and let’s say it, a whole month of no crazy holidays to get ready for – Labor day doesn’t count since it’s really an easy one to celebrate and it has more of a summertime feel.
Are you with me? Raise your hands if you’re with me!
Now I know for a fact that some of you are excited that the holidays are coming and are going full steam ahead. Go ahead and enjoy, I’m not going to stop you. But for the rest of you who want to enjoy September for what it is, the last month before all the craziness begins, join us each week as we help you celebrate the start of the fall season through delicious new recipes, ideas for transforming your home and taking you to new places to discover.
Finally, we have two little surprises for the fashionistas out there.
• We have a very special interview with designer Jake Wall from this season’s Project Runway
• And, we’re headed to London to cover one of the premiere fashion events of the year, London Fashion Week SS16
I am so excited about the month to come and hope you are as well! Let’s enjoy September together and take it one month at a time!
