I love the month of September! The weather is changing, and this year, it's absolutely lovely in the
area, after a very hot summer. September
always feels like a new beginning – the kids are back in school, and
theoretically, it should be less busy. Chicago
Not in our family. September is one of our busiest months. Along with the usual back-to-school activities, we also celebrate our twins' birthday, my husband's birthday, our anniversary and my nephew's birthday. Other than our nephew's birthday, they're spaced out nicely – a week between each of them. But it makes for a hectic and busy schedule, especially since our twins went off to college. We like to visit them around their birthday, but since they went to school in completely opposite directions, we don't always make it.
I try to embrace the craziness, but sometimes I need to escape for a few hours. My favorite way to do that? Go hide somewhere with a good book. I always have a huge stack of them to choose from. However, choosing which book to read next can cause more stress!
What's your busiest month? And what do you do to escape? If you have a good 'busy month' story, please share it. And because I'm always looking for fun ways to relax during September, I'll toss all the poster's names into a bowl and pick one to receive a copy of my March book,Happy September!
A Safe Place. It's the first book in my Devereux family
trilogy. The second book, The Woman He
Knows, is out this month.
