30 Ways to Celebrate September


Happy September! If you’ve been following along you know I absolutely love lists, and I typically
post a fall to-do list (don’t worry, it’s coming). After my best friend passed away in March this year
it’s really had me focused on the now, and that’s why I decided that I want to start a new monthly
series. This series will give you 30 (or 31) ways to celebrate each month. Starting with my favorite
time of the year… fall! Let me know if there is anything that you think I should add to the September
list.


1. Visit a cider mill. Yates is my absolute favorite I love a cup of hot cider with a plain donut or
molasses cookie.


2. Head to the farmers market before the season is over and enjoy sweet corn, peaches,
watermelon and more.


3. Volunteer at a soup kitchen.

4. Start to transition your summer style to fall.

5. Tailgate and check out a football game - hello Detroit Lions and University of Michigan.

6. Book a camping trip, and enjoy the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

7. Look up some soup recipes you can make when the weather gets chilly.

8. Head to a bookstore and grab a new book that you can curl up and watch by a fire.

11. Make s’mores, don’t forget to try different chocolates and cookies.
