A September List

{farmers market blooms / Queen B / a floral themed birthday}

The month of September was beautiful. We had two birthdays in this house, and there is nothing I love more than an excuse to spoil and be spoilt! The days are stretching out, and the fickle spring weather has lived up to expectations. I've been busy planting and planning, and I can't wait to share some of it with you soon. This month has bought with it mixed news - or rather, news that could be taken as good or bad. I'm choosing to look to the positive. It's a mindset that I've worked hard to manifest over the last year, and it makes life so much easier. I'm done with always thinking the grass is greener on the other side. All I've got is right now, and I'm going to choose to enjoy it. {*most of the time. I still get grumpy, it just lasts for a shorter period...}
