September is the end of summer and the beginning of fall. To me, it is a mark of new beginnings. Even though it has been years since I was last in school, I feel the buzz of excitement over new outfits, bags, supplies, growth for the start of a new school year. It is bittersweet as each day is so beautiful to me and I want to freeze time. In the spring, I can’t wait for the leaves to come in and for it to warm up. In the summer, I bask in the glory of the season while wilting away in the heat. In September, I know that summer is drawing to a close and that fall is just a breath away.
This month is about finishing up summer bucket lists for the year and enjoy the last of the season before bunkering down for the colder months. I would love to get some hiking and fairs within the month, but I know that my son’s soccer games will keep me busy throughout most of the weekends. This month’s photo shoot is about mermaids and sailors and I have an amazing murder mystery house warming party that I am hoping to blog as I have a feeling it is going to be very exciting.
I have a wonderful photo shoot coming up with Andrew and Alexandra. We are doing some recreations of the classic story of Hans Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid. I am hoping to lean more towards the original story and less on the Disney rendition (not that there is anything wrong with our little red headed fin princess and her beau).

A few projects where I dive back into creating clothes
Although September is the official end of summer, I wanted to make this month’s blog about our wake from the Covid hibernation and going back into the community of fairs, events, visiting families, etc. in hopes of never having to face this beast again. Life is too short to live within an isolated cage and humans are social creatures that thrive on the community to nurture themselves.
