This quote by Oscar Wilde says it all. As much as I love summer, the month of September has become my favorite month. For so many years, September always symbolized the return of routines, kids going back to school, me going back to school when I was teaching. Those beautiful September days were so bittersweet. Now that I am self employed and in the studio most days, I can fully appreciate the cool crisp mornings and sunny afternoons . I love the freedom that I have in my days, being able to go for runs in the morning and work in the studio for the rest of the day and more often late into the evenings since my husband has been traveling a lot.
