Happy September! After a brief hiatus from blogging, I’m coming back with more content, more inspiration, and more intent than ever; change always seems to motivate me.
Does anyone else think that summer flew by? It feels like only days ago I was hiking in the woods with my pup, eating peaches off my grandfather’s tree, and napping in the sunshine. While fall is my favorite season, there are so many sweet little summer memories I always hold onto after I’ve gone back to school to start the new year.
All the changes that accompany the beginning of September can be exciting and relieving, but also strange. After being home for so long, switching up my location and mindset is a major change. That being said, I find that I need some means of relaxing and reconnecting with my environment. One of the things I rely on most, for this, is music. I’ve created a September Playlist – “Feels Like Home” that is full of music that makes me feel relaxed and comfortable. For me, this consists of my favorite folk artists; upbeat acoustic tracks and mellow, wholesome tunes. I’ll put this playlist on when I’m getting ready in the morning, doing homework or reading. Check it out on my Spotify to listen.

Let me know what songs you have on repeat this month, and whether you’re loving Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, etc. I’m still trying to figure out if I want to pay for premium on any of them.
