September Love

Isn't September a wonderful month?

This week, we're enjoying every moment of an Indian summer. 
Warm, peaceful sunshine 
tempered with a mild and balmy breeze.

Perfect for lazy bike rides.
And tea in the garden.

Golden light.
And dappled grass.

After nearly eight weeks of holidays
with the house full of the merry (!) sounds of our five children, 
school has started. 

And all is quiet again....

It's just me.
And baby Sophie.

And you....

Time to get cracking with some projects....
I can't wait.

I adore September. I love the cooler nights and warm days, the golden light, and the culmination of harvest. Hooray for fall!

It's THE BEST!! Enjoy your quiet.

Sarah, I am sure that while you enjoyed all of the kiddies home it is special to have your new precious one all to yourself!

I hope you enjoy your lovely Fall! Looking forward to your Christmas ideas.

Take care, Elizabeth

Yes, Sarah, there is something quite special about September.
Particularly if we get some late good weather, it makes you feel like you can start on some new projects with new energy.
Hope you have a lovely day,
Ps: thanks for the heads up on the F&B paint colours competition-I hadn't seen this at all.

These are lovely days, indeed. Full of warmth during the day, and chilly enough to need a bit of blanket at night. Enjoy!

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

YES! September is one of my favourite months and fall is my fave season as well. Cheers from London! Will :)

Vanessa said...

I adore September and October, Sarah! Crisp cool days and chilly nights. Time to pull on our jeans, sweaters and woolly socks! Yay!

What a fabulous photo! I love September too - but it's more for the warm breeze blowing in and all the flowers that are starting to open. Just this week two of the trees in our yard have started blossoming. Bliss! I can't wait to see what creative things you are up to. :)

Elaine said...

I can't wait for the cooler temps. It was really humid and tropical feeling and I like sweater weather.

Enjoy your free time while the kiddies are in school.

Indeed! Beautiful time of the year! Can't wait to break out the jeans. Oooh, I hope I can find some colored jeans this fall.

Lovely photo!

Happy snuggling with Sophie :)


Paula said...

Hellooooooo!!! I'm glad that you're there, because my house is all empty and echo-y now that the children are back at school. As much as I am a tad relieved, I also miss the madness, and unlike you with the gorgeous baby Sophie, I only have a shaggy old Jack Russell to cuddle = lol!
Looking forward to seeing your projects, and yes, I absolutely ADORE September, and this time of year - I always have!

You and Sophie and tea ... the kids all tucked in at school ... sounds like a perfect September to me.


Cindy said...

I do love September, aren't you glad to have baby Sophie with you? You're not alone! You're a smart lady.
I love that you're not dying to get away from your kids. It makes me so sad to hear moms say that, they want them out of the house. They grow up and leave soon enough. Enjoy your mommy days, sweet Sarah.
Hugs, Cindy

Hello Sarah!

I so agree on loving September! It is the perfect month...still warm outside like summer hasn't quite said goodbye, but fall is definitely in the air! :)

I hope you enjoy every precious moment with your sweet Sophie! :)


Travel With Lulu said...

Happy new school year to you, Sarah! I bet you are enjoying your little Sophie to the fullest. I don't know how you do it all - and so gracefully!

I'd love for you(and Sophie)to join me at 'Blogger's Tea' in London on Oct 2nd. It would be great to see you!!

Have a wonderful sunny September day today! XOL

Privet and Holly said...

Happy September!

My kiddos have been
back at it since the last
week in August and I'm
still adjusting to our new
routines. My oldest "baby"
will graduate high school
this year, so change is in
the air, for certain....

Enjoy that warmth and
sunshine, and most especially
your baby moments!!
