PALE SEPTEMBER - FIONA APPLE

September,  …. . You know fall is coming because apples are here (love crisp chopped apples in salads with blue cheese)  the grass is as soft as a feather, Oh September grass is the sweetest. The harvest moon is a sight to see, (full moon date Sep 28, 2015) but not only that, lets think about all the seasonal food!!! Lets start with my favorite: Blackberries, Raspberries, Melons, Sweet corn how I love you!!!!! Potato's my favorite!... Pumpkin! I will be baking my famous "Pumpkin pancakes" with yummy organic honey, peaches, pears, peppers, grapes, carrots , kale, cauliflower and many more.
 
I have always had fun memories of September..... I was always exited to go back to school, and when I started working the thought of a long weekend (Labor Day) made me smile. The lakes I visit are still in my memory.... long hikes with the perfect temperature, waterfalls delighting my eyes pumpkin candles hitting the shelves, and pine tree smell everywhere.
Stopping at a gas stations to get snacks for our long trip ahead.....at times I miss those long drives at 4am, arriving to our destination and grabbing coffee.

Sitting on a green grass lawn, listening to teenage boys talk about trucks and girls hahahah! hopping on the back of a pick-up truck and driving to the nearest lake. The lonely streets full of possibilities make you feel exited  but something nostalgic surrounds them. The 5 o'clock sun bronzed light is the BEST, nothing beats the drive back home reminiscing on the wonderful day I've had with that golden light dripping on those tall tree walls surrounding our truck the taste of sangria on my lips. The stars as prominent as the pronounced dark blue sky.

Soft mornings with natures orchestra..... town cafes, a good morning from a stranger, a pancakes house inviting me in.
 
this year has been an obstacle on its own, I'm so happy this year is coming to an end.... I've seriously never felt like that, I always get sad when a year is almost ending or when my birthday is around the corner , but this year ending ......  feels like a relive. I've handled this year like a trooper.

Future thoughts: I want to make the last months of this year memorable and I want to find peace of mind, because that at the end is the most important thing. I need to get back on track and focus on what's more important.

Keep loving those in my life that I can't live without, get rid of unnecessary people and habits.
