September is promise and possibility.*

1 this Nate Ruess song
2 the common kindness of a store clerk
3 a long drive between two places you love
4 coming home
5 discovering a favorite red wine
6 going shopping in your own closet
7 staccato conversation amid chasing children
8 receiving a book in the mail
9 the ease of a Zappos return
10 hoodies
11 collective memory
12 a good podcast
13 feeling pride in a sibling
14 a day of getting it all done
15 black-and-white photos
16 picking your own basil from the porch to make pesto
17 dear family friends who feel more like second parents
18 an unscheduled day
19 finding coffee still left in the cup
20 focusing on one child at a time
21 your kids huddled in the back seat of the car, helping each other with homework
22 passing books and movies among neighbors
23 leaves on the ground
24 your daughter’s toddle
25 feeling lifted up by the lit community
26 wise words from one who knows you well
27 a weekday brunch with my man
28 first fall chill
29 watching your niece hold your daughter
30 the view of the farm
