With Labor Day (and the unofficial end of summer) behind us, I’m already enjoying the new autumn-themed treats at our local coffee shops and grocery stores. Warm apple pies, hot cider, and pumpkin-flavored everything… I hate saying goodbye to summer, but I definitely welcome the return of fall and the onset of cooler weather.
This September, I’m counting down the days until Mumford and Sons’ second album, Babel, and J.K. Rowling’s new book, The Casual Vacancy.
Yard sales and shopping. Lemonade and flip-flops. Old friends and sunny skies. Fresh fruit and homemade pies. Afternoon naps and long phone conversations. Pool parties and cold drinks. Long drives with the windows down. Midnight barbecues and the sound of crickets to lull you to sleep.
