Dear September

You were all kinds of crazy and everything in between. You were new schedules and routines, a flush of gorgeous colors, a steamy, cluttered kitchen, the dirtiest stove around. You were Zinnias and flowering plants readying themselves to share seeds for next year. You were a garden literally bursting at the seams. You were a bit of yarn and even a little sewing. You were home improvement projects and reorganized drawers. You were school lunches every morning and you demanded clean laundry every week. You were the stomach flu. Twice. You were life in full, glorious color, flavor, and sound.

  1. Oh, how nice to see photos on your blog. Your veggies and flowers are gorgeous but your girls...the best prize yet. Hadley is getting so big, Heather. I've got a lump in my throat now, thinking about it.

  2. My stove is turning out to be even dirtier in October than in September (bubbling applesauce--even on the ceiling!--tomato sauce, the mysteriously stove-filthying overflowing canning pot...). :-)

  4. Glad to hear that you had a busy, full, productive mostly (minus the stomach flu, twice) great September. And your girls are not only growing up SO BIG, but SO BEAUTIFUL.

  8. Seriously, wasn't September a crazy blurr? Glad the garden, cooking, canning, crafting were able to make into the hecticness of life! I hope you got help with your garden at the end. I see your posts on FB and if I lived there, I'd totally go out and help you harvest! One of these days...
