Ah, September is almost here again. Can you believe summer is coming to an end? Where did the time go? It’s exciting to see Fall knocking on the door. I have noticed the leaves starting to change colors. September is special because not only do we bid bon voyage to Summer but we welcome Autumn September 22nd.
“We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.” –Henry Rollins
