What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Two very important things about me:
1. Fall is my very favorite thing in the world.
2. I start celebrating fall on September 1st.
Now, I realize that a lot of people don’t like this and that you may think I’m rushing summer to be over, but hear me out: I live in Florida. If I waited for Summer to be over, I wouldn’t get to celebrate fall until it was time for Christmas. Two months is simply just not enough time to squeeze all of my favorite things about my favorite season into. So, September 1st it is. Side note: When I still lived at home, one time my mom and I tried to sneak the fall decorations out on August 1st instead, but my dad threatened to kick us both out of the house, so we decided September would just have to work.
I love this quote, because to me, August really is a hinge year. I’m sentimental over summer but so excited that fall is almost here. Pool days and sunshine are still around, but pumpkin spice lattes are right on the horizon.
August makes me nostalgic. Another summer is in the books, memories and vacations and popsicles and bikinis. It will be a year before the carefree attitude of summer is back around, and I miss it already.
But fall is hovering, with it’s excitement and desserts just waiting to be baked and pumpkin flavored coffee and carmel apples and oversized sweaters. And I can’t wait. I can’t wait to go to Hobby Lobby and buy more glittery pumpkins and candy corn string lights. I can’t wait to bake entirely too many desserts, but hey, I’m eating for two this fall, so bring on the pumpkin. I can’t wait for everything that fall is–cooler weather and warm drinks and excitement about what the rest of the year holds.
So me, I’m in the swing forward camp. And for the next three weeks, I’ll be over here soaking up the last of summer and anxiously awaiting my first pumpkin dessert of the season.
