September has been my favorite month for pretty much as long as I can remember, so I always love it. BUT WOAH YOU GUYS – if this September wasn’t something extra special!

Cooking: casserole this weekend, maybe? Not sure yet, but right now that sounds delicious.
Reading: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by the incomparable Anne Lamott!
Wanting: my Chrome to cut it out with the whole “randomly restarting” thing. >:O
Playing: “Over You” by Miranda Lambert. (Listen to it on Youtube here) If you don’t know it, you should, but just be prepared for your soul to be crushed. It’s a devastating (and beautiful) song about loss that just happened to be on my Pandora when I got to this question!
Sewing: At this point we should all just choose to pretend this category doesn’t exist, shall we?
Wishing: today had been less stressful, but tomorrow’s my chance at another one!
Enjoying: getting to connect with so many new stepmoms after my last post! I’ve been absolutely LOVING chatting with amazing women who are CRUSHING this stepmom thing!
Waiting: to hear more women’s stories! I’m stoked!
Liking: my new backpack. Super cute and super cheap – pretty much my two requirements for everything 😉
Wondering: what podcasts you all listen to! I’m a total podcast JUNKIE and would love to get some recommendations for more!
Loving: how quick and easy it is for our family to take a quick jaunt downtown. We went to the bookstore tonight, all three of us, and got to hang out and chat during the short walk there and back. I’m really grateful for our new house’s proximity to fun, family-themed things to do!
Hoping: my nephew Aiden isn’t 100 feet tall when we go visit him tomorrow – everyone KNOWS that babies grow wicked fast, but I swear, it still shocks me every time I see him!
Marveling: at meeting goals and making connections.
Smelling: my new favorite candle – Home Sweet Home by Yankee Candle. It’s pure fall goodness without being too overpowering or intense. Just lovely.
Following: WAY too many channels on youtube…I need to chill out. At this point I don’t even have time to watch them all!
Noticing: how grown up Jess is getting. It’s this exciting, terrifying, wild thing to witness.
Knowing: that I’m quite possibly the most blessed woman alive. <– That was from last month but you know what? It’s still true! <3
Thinking: that the voices in The Zac Brown Band are super dreamy.
Bookmarking: recommendations for new purse books! (That is, books to keep in my purse, not books about purses…Although, I’d be game for that, too! Hah!)
Feeling: Blessed. Hopeful. Nervous for the future.
