September is here!! The official start of Fall is just around the corner and the Garvin family is excited about it!! It has already started cooling off around here, so having the screen door open in the evenings has been a favorite part of our day.
Here are a few things we are looking forward to in September.
- Starting school! I should probably be dreading this knowing how much work is about to be put on my plate as I navigate the uncharted waters of homeschool. But, instead, we are excited! I’ve fully embraced them being home and taking on this adventure together. Bonus: we plan to sleep in and will wake up every morning grateful to not have to pack lunches.
- Fall at the lake! Since we bought our lake house in December of last year, we are excited to watch the leaves change on the water & cozy boat rides with blankets and red wine!
- Soup Sundays. Every year starting in September we make soup every Sunday (chili, homemade chicken noodle, butternut squash, all the good stuff) and eat it throughout the week. It has been a favorite tradition paired with the sound of football on in the background. Can we all just pray that football season can still happen?!
Of course putting up Fall decor & planning Halloween costumes are also high on the list, we are just getting started and I can’t wait to share more of it with you! Hope you guys are feeling a breath of fresh air this morning as we roll into September, we are definitely grateful for our most favorite season and all of the fun that comes with it.257
Fall is my fav, it’s started to get cooler in the mornings here in St. Louis which I love when it’s time for windows open and coffee on the porch! Love the new site!! XO
