On the last day of each month I’m sharing a personal recap that will also be included in my Project Life album.

Around Here | September 2014

See more of my September on Instagram.

Around here I’m addicted to the beautiful light during this time of year.

Around here the crisp air has me bringing out the flat iron more often.

Around here she and I have been to our first Illinois football game.

Around here she’s obsessed with all things pink and princess.

Around here she’s growing so fast and in the 98th percentile for height.

Around here we’re filling the spaces in life with the house hunt.

Around here I’m trying not to feel anxious about it. So hard.

Around here he’s being a patient and supportive husband.

Around here we’re grateful to be able to take time away just for us.

Around here I’m thrilled to see and hear this again after eight years.

Around here I’m a little bit obsessed with pineapple mojitos.

Around here I’m preemptively holding strong against new projects.

Around here I’m taking two classes and doing a lot of homework.

Around here I’m eager to spend more time writing during October.

How did September treat you? I’d love it if you shared one highlight, challenge, or realization in the comments.

      Thanks for sharing your list. I love how you’ve identified both limiting factors, opportunities, and positive changes.

    September flew by. We were blessed to go on vacation and see our middle daughter, as well as relax (a bit!) on a cruise. I was in the hospital for a week. A new kitchen (yes, from top to bottom!) was put in our villa.
