preparing for Charlotte’s first birthday party. I cannot believe how quickly the year has passed. I’d heard parents say that time flies when you have little ones – it’s true. I think it’s because you have someone else to measure time by (instead of just celebrating your own birthdays and milestones.) We’re celebrating her birthday on October 31st so the countdown to get organized is on!
creating new morning routines. My neighbor and I have been getting up a couple times each week for a 545AM morning walk. I’m loving the jumpstart to my morning and it’s nice to have some girl time before the day begins.
celebrating Marty’s twenty-seventh birthday.
embracing autumn traditions. Apple picking, crockpots of chili, camping, long walks under the changing leaves. This is just the best season!
reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. While I don’t agree with everything Kondo writes (I don’t intend to consider the ‘feelings’ of my socks and handbag), I do believe that we should respect our belongings and only keep the items we truly love. Slowly but surely I’ve been condensing my wardrobe. Having limited options really does make getting ready much easier. Have you read this book? I highly recommend if you haven’t!
spending time with fellow mamas. I started going to M.O.P.S. (Mothers of Preschoolers) at the beginning of the month. We’ve only had two sessions so far but it’s nice to have fellowship with women in a similar season of life.
How have you been spending September?
