Before you get too excited, we’re not quite there yet. There are 12 more days until the official start of what I like to call the ‘ber months. That includes SeptemBER, OctoBER, NovemBER, and DecemBER. Typically, those months involve brisk temperatures and chilly breezes, but since this is the South, those don’t come until midway through October. But still.
This is my favorite time of the year. All my favorite holidays are there. So many happy memories come from there. Plus, you get things like pumpkin spice, pumpkins, apple cider, flannel, bonfires, smores . . . the list goes on.
The last few days have felt almost like a sneak preview of the coming season. Slightly cooler, slightly less humid means slightly happier me. And slightly less sweaty me, which makes everyone else happier.
But I’m not going to rush past this current season. I want to savor it and get all I can out of it and not miss anything from looking too far ahead. And it’s not like I’m counting down the days until fall (only 33 days).
