Labor Day means the end of Summer to me, and to most people I suppose. While I’m always sad to see it go, I love September! The temps cool down a bit, school is back in session, the days are quieter in our house, and I enjoy brisk nights around a glowing fire pit, too. Add roasted marshmallows and I’m in heaven! Before I get too far ahead of myself tho, I have a few memories of Summer. These capture it well.

Now back to September. We just picked lots of tomatoes and peppers from the garden…finally ready. I’m off to attempt to make homemade salsa. Gaa! It wasn’t that hot here and our tomatoes took longer than usual. But we are rocking and rolling now! And we have way too many jalapeno peppers…so I’m open to hearing your favorite homemade salsa recipes.
Soon I will be sharing a special sumpin’ about prepping for allergy/cold season. That’s the bad part about September I suppose. It arrives without warning. This year I am one UP on you allergy monsters. Stay tuned!
