Happy September! School has started in these parts, but we’re still trying to adjust to the new routine and the craziness that inevitably comes with a new school year. Fall is my favorite time of year (and not just because my birthday is in the fall) and I look forward to fall traditions and fall foods all year long. Yes, summer is fun. Spring is beautiful. Winter…well, winter is just cold. But the fall is full of the best baked treats, the best colors (I love oranges and reds and yellows and browns), and the best smells. Plus, the weather is nearly perfect.
Here are a few blog prompts for the beginning of fall. What will you be writing about this month?
It’s back-to-school season. Write about what you love (or maybe don’t love) about back-to-school.Who was your favorite teacher when you were in school? What made them so memorable?
