It had gotten pretty hot during August, as it tends to do around here, but come September 1st, it's like Mother Nature flipped some switch, and it's seemingly been in the high 70's to mid 80s all month long. I don't know for sure because I never checked. All I knew was it felt perfect outside day, after day, after day. By the time we were three weeks into it I started feeling like we were getting away with something. The days have been pleasant, and the nights have had just enough of that crisp in the air to leave windows open and let the early fall air cool things down.

I think this makes up for the cold, wet, and mucky winter/spring that seemed to go on forever this year. If I recall correctly, it was June before things felt consistently warm. But with the way September has gone, I've almost forgotten about that.
I love fall, and I don't mind when things cool down from here. I even get excited for the first snow (which I hope is still a few weeks away), but I've sure enjoyed the way September has gone. A perfect backdrop for college football, kids starting school, changing leaves, and the displaying of the first handful of Halloween decorations.
