September is my favorite month of the year. It’s my birthday month and up until recently it meant going back to school; in other words, a time for renewed effort and energy and productivity, and a time for fresh starts as well. It’s when the summer begins to fade, when the temperature begins to cool, and the leaves begin to turn. I love all of this. I started this blog last year in September, and although I’ve barely even given it a thought this summer, I’m hoping I can channel some of my “back to school” energy into this little project of mine once again.
I’m very excited about my birthday this year, as I am every year, really. I’m turning 28, and although getting close to my thirties does intimidate me a little, my birthday has always been one of the best days of the year; after all, it’s my own personal holiday. How does everyone not love that? I try to make it as special as possible by doing the things I enjoy the most alongside people that bring me joy. This year I’ll be celebrating my birthday a bit early with Matt by going to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, which has been on my to-do list ever since I moved down here. Then I’ll be traveling to Boston for my birthday week to visit my dear friends and former roommates, Jess and Rachel. I plan to revisit all of my favorite haunts and do a LOT of thrifting while I’m there.
Anyway, stay tuned for more blog posts and lots of new items in the Etsy shop soon; I have mountains of amazing vintage goodies to debut in the coming weeks. September is going to be a good month!
