  1. Love your blog - glad we found eachother! September is when I get my sanity back because my boys go back to school and we can all get back into a routine. I love your list.

  2. hahaha - Thank you so much Catherine! :) I am over at your place tooooo :)

  3. September is like a new beginning every year for me. It is the start of school, the beginning of fall and is always my goal setting time of year. It is a busy month, but one of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by the Zippy Chix site, joining your FB group so that I can keep up with your blog!

  4. I couldn't agree more. I am a Virgo (although I am not organized all the time ;) The leaves are at their best on my birthday Sep. 17th (check em out) I love the back to school, colors, holidays, smells. Oh I could go on and on and maybe I will on my blog. I will link back and show everyone your fabulous site!! Oh and BTW, we are neighbors! I live in Orem :)

  5. What a unique blog. It's fresh and different. I like it. September is many of the things you mentioned, as well as crisp apples, the sound of crunching leaves when you walk (if you listen, not too many leaves yet . . . just a few) and the glorious change of fall foliage. Have a great weekend.

  6. September is a time of waiting for the leaves to turn and for it to be okay to cook with pumpkin and order Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It is harvest time and a time of eating fresh ingredients and preparing warm soups. Locally, it is a time for beer festivals and my favorite Greek Festival. To me personally, it is memories of my grandmother and grandfather and the month before I married my handsome sweetheart.

  7. Hi Kimberly!

    September is a new month for new beginnings and new experiences :)

    On a side note, do drop by my blog and say hello :)

    By the way, I found you on the LBS tea party :)

  8. Thank you SO much for the wonderful comments! Who doesn't like comments?

    I agree with all the marvelous September isisisises ... I am so excited for fall!

  9. What a coincidence: we just made a homemade chocolate cake tonight! :) (although, that's an event that takes place every month!)
    You summed up the month of September perfectly.

  10. I just left you a *note* on my own blog but we really should get together and share notes on all things Rehoboth. I grew up there. House on the edge of Henlopen Acres. In fact, I am posting a blog post about it tomorrow! Small, small world.

  11. Hi Kimberly, I'm visiting from the lady blogers Tea party. I've never really stopped to think about what Sept. means to me or any other month for that matter. A lot I'm sure when I think about it. Drop in and visit my blog at

  12. My birthday is the 20th, so I've renamed it International You Can Stop Talking Like A Freaking Pirate Now Day.

    And I didn't know about the ovarian cancer month. My sister was just diagnosed with every gynecological cancer imaginable; I don't care much for her, but I don't think anyone should have to go through that. I'm glad you avoided it.

  13. I'm a new reader; loved this post and your blog! Glad I found it...and as a native Delawarean, I loved the picture of the Rehoboth Boardwalk. We, being only an hour from there, will continue to visit the beach every weekend through October and then even a on nice winter days.

    Anyway, love your picture too. I'll be back to read more!


  14. Serene - you frigging crack me up LOL! with the stop talking like a pirate bit .. not the other ... I will say a prayer for your sister.

    Susan! EAT GROTTO PIZZA FOR ME AND TAKE PICS OF IT ... I am now stalking Grotto on twitter lol - Glad to meet you and checking out your site now!
