Dear September, I love you.
I know. I know. I gush about each new season as it comes, but trust me, this is one of the best month’s ever! It’s all about new possibilities and hunkering down for the winter with visions of chicken stew and dumplings, gingerbread pudding and cozy evenings with the fireplace on (Who am I kidding? It’s gonna be dinners gulped down before rugby practices. Wading through closets looking for riding boots. Getting home in time for tutors. Driving to pick up kids at the indoor pool!!!).
One of the best things about September is the plethora of fall fairs and harvest markets! Who can resist those butternut squash, or the canning jars of golden ripe peaches? I defy you not to buy a box of ripe field heirloom tomatoes!
I’m really looking forward to the Fieldstone Vintage Market about an hour from where I live–out among the lush farmlands in the Fraser Valley, BC. I’d like to thank Jodi, over at The Simply Inspired Home, for posting about this amazing market. Hopefully I’ll see her and some of my blogger friends out there!
