I know most monthly wraps-ups usually start off with, “Where did the month go,” but nothing makes this feeling more true than how quickly August flew by. I almost forgot to pay my rent on time, because I wasn’t expecting September to come and introduce itself so sneakily. But, now that I’m back to nights at my job and my summer schedule is over, I’m ready for summer itself to be over (especially since fall is the season where I thrive and I always find fall to be the best time of the year ever, because it basically kicks off the holiday season).
Last month was hectically busy and I know this month will probably be so, too, but I’m hoping to really buckle down and get back into a routine. The pup is starting to mature just a smidge and our backyard is at least accessible again, so time belongs a little bit more to me now, when she’s able to frolic back there unsupervised now. Which means back to making writing a priority, continue making progress with my SPFBO reads, continue blogging, hopefully work on client work, all while also potentially getting back into the workout grind (or loving myself, more preferably) and general life stuff.

And that’s a wrap for this month! I am eagerly awaiting fall temperatures that are here to stay, apple cider, wearing orange too much and getting way too hyped about Halloween. This is the time of year that I absolutely love and starts off my favorite time of the year. So let’s get this heat over with and start moving on to fall, shall we?
