SEPTEMBER is the sneakiest month, but also my favourite (and not just because it's my birthday...which I actually don't like that much because it makes me feel ancient and anxious, ha!).
I LOVED SCHOOL (I've grown more comfortable with how lame that statement sounds in my old age), and September will forever signal the return of books and bouquets of sharpened pencils (*s/o Tom Hanks*).
The summer was a busy one (in the best way), but I'm looking forward to the routine that fall brings.
So to kick-start the change of seasons, here are a few of the things on my FALL BUCKET LIST (let me know if you've got any goodies to add) and some songs I'm listening to as of late :
