Today begins the start of a new routine. Back to school. Brisk weather. Leaves crunching under bicycle tires. Darker mornings. Coffee. Lots of coffee. (Um, there was always coffee in the summer too. I just think there will be more now.)
Summer is, hands down, my favourite season, but fall is a close second. September is my birth month, so I’ve always associated it with new beginnings and fresh starts. This September in particular, there are lots of new things. I’m trying to remember how everything feels brand new because it is so easy and comforting to fall in to routines.
