It seems like just yesterday I was pushing the shovel in my driveway, muttering to myself how I wish the warm weather would get here.

Today I pulled my September page from my twelve-month calendar and started to look over some of the dates through the month of October.

It seems like the year moves slowly at some points and quickly at others, but this time of year seems to be the fastest for me.

The other day my son said to me he's already one-sixth of the way through the school year since we're getting close to the end of the first trimester.

You don't believe me?

It's just 30 days until Halloween.

There are 37 days until the end of daylight savings time. (That's when we fall back an hour!)

It's 55 days until Thanksgiving.

We've got 85 days until Christmas... and just 91 until New Year's Eve.

I always say that I love sweatshirt season, as it brings along with it football, chili, and pumpkin patches. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long as the snow moves in rather quickly behind it.

I do get anxious this time of year, too. We have numerous family birthdays to remember, and I always feel the pressure of buying all those holiday gifts! (I much prefer to just hand out a pile of gift cards... it saves so much time!)

I'm already noticing some of the leaves turning colors and a few are even making their way onto the ground.

It won't be long now...
