Happy September. I know summer always flies but this year it really flew. It already feels like fall here, and can you get over this sunrise from this morning? Grainy phone pic but it almost looks like a painting. The school year is in full swing and we are all ready to get back into a nice routine. Hope all of you have a nice long weekend. So many great links this week, enjoy!
