Fall of Promise
We are mere days from the beginning of school. All we have left to do is buy green pens, post it notes and shoes. Not bad, although the shoe shopping might be the death of me. Emma starts 5th grade which is Middle School here. Middle School! Maddie starts college. College! The end of summer is a time of transitions, of endings and beginnings. Happy and sad. The girls aren't the only ones making big plans though. I'm making some of my own.
Here are some of my plans for this Fall:
- Start learning French and work on our itinerary for our Paris/London trip next Spring.
- Study photography. My Sweet Hubby gifted me with a big girl camera. A Canon T2i with an extra lens. Now I just have to learn how to use it all before our trip.
-Get back to being creative. I'm looking forward to knitting classes again and also to giving my sewing machine a workout.
-Speaking of workouts...it's high time I get off my rear and start getting some exercise again. I wish I had an elliptical in the house but considering I live in a Village that is loaded with trails and green space, I have zero excuses.
So to recap, if you're looking for me this Fall, I'll be the girl walking the tree-lined Village streets, listening to french lessons on my Ipod, while toting my big camera and day dreaming about my next creative project. There is so much promise in the air. Can't you just smell it?
