The aster is a vibrant wildflower historically sought after based on the belief that it could repel evil spirits. In the modern day, we recognize it as a symbol of love, patience, and reflection.

September 23 marks the first day of fall! Get ready for cozy sweaters, apple picking, hot chocolate, and colorful leaves on the trees!

7. Apple picking

September is the perfect time for apple picking! It's never too early to stock up for applesauce, apple cider, and apple pie. Plus, the weather is beginning to get just as crisp as the fruit.

8. School supplies

Maybe I'm alone in this, but the beginning of September means stocking up on school supplies. I love an excuse to buy tons of pencils, notebooks, crayons, and the like.

9. Fresh pens and notebook

Since the weather is getting colder and the sun is setting sooner, we often spend more time indoors in the fall, which is a great time for writing and reflection. So, why not invest in some nice pens and a smooth leather-bound journal to fully enjoy the season.

10. Board games

It can be sometimes dreary when fall weather rolls around. But if journaling is a bit too isolating, board games are a great way to hang out with your friends on a chilly evening.

September goes by so quick, so take a moment and enjoy this lovely month of the year.

PS: Shoutout to all the Virgos and Libras!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally.
