September – William Wordsworth

September | The Silver Pen

Happy September!  I can barely believe that I just wrote that. My oh my oh my. How on earth is it S.E.P.E.T.E.M.B.E.R. already?!?!? As much as I can barely admit this, I am still getting use to the fact that it is 2013.  Good gracious.  And the thing that makes me especially looney tunes is that I know that as soon as September arrives, the end of the year is right around the corner. So, what that means is that it is nearly 2014. Oh geesh. What a tailspin I’m working myself into.

Deep breath. Whoa nelly.

The Silver Lining is that there are still 4 – yes FOUR – beautiful months left to celebrate in this calendar year. This is yet another reminder to focus not on what is gone, but rather what is present and what lays ahead.

Fall also happens to be my absolute favorite time of the year. When I lived in the Midwest, I erroneously thought that “California doesn’t really have a fall.”  Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong. What I have had the opportunity to learn firsthand is that you don’t have to go to New England to see the leaves change color.  Santa Barbara happens to display lots colors of fall and there is indeed a chill in the air, both of which are Silver Linings in my life.

How about you? Do you like fall? If so, what do you like about it?

    I love Fall and I'm ready for it this year. My favorite thing is wearing sweaters. I'm not sure why, but sweaters just seem like the comfiest of clothing items for me. I also love the leaves changing colors. I am scheduling a family photo in October hoping to capture some of those colors in them (we also live in Cali – but Northern Cali)…
