dear september,


dear September-in-southern-California,

we meet again! i know we go through this every twelve months, but it's about that time of year when the northeast-Ohioan in me starts craving the finer things of Fall....that chill in the air, the reds and oranges and yellows showing up on all the trees, pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin, and sweater weather, to name a few. i'm sure you think it's super annoying that i ask you the same question every single day (is it Fall yet?!), but this 90-degree weather is really throwing me for a loop.

hope you don't take it too personal though. we both know i will have long forgotten about all this come January, when the days are warm & sunny and feel like springtime. i can't have it all, i guess! anyways, just wanted to let you know i'm ready for Fall to get here pronto. looking forward to hearing back from you.

sincerely,

whitney

**it's actually been a little cloudy the past day or two, but 90-degrees is in the forecast for this weekend, and plus i just love talking about the weather? hope you all are having better luck with your september than i am. ;) i've even started making plans for a trip out to Virginia next month--to visit my sisters and get my fill of "Fall" (no offense southern California. remember what i said about January?).  that craving i mentioned earlier is not kidding around!

  1. You can come up to NorCal, we get Fall for real. Visit Napa... oh so pretty in fall and they are harvesting the grapes so you can enjoy the harvest festival in style! :)

    1. they're kind of a dream! 70s and sunny usually! i always miss the cooler weather & the "seasons" from september 1st until Christmas, but after that i actually really love that it's just springy weather all the time :)

  3. Its been baking here in the UK too - so wierd, but I have to say since the start of this week the weather has taken a turn and its looking decidedly autumny now - can wait to get out all those chunky knits!

  5. It´s the first day it REALLY has felt like fall here in my parts of Sweden, it was pretty chilly during the day. :-)

  6. aww, i'm in northeast ohio visiting the mama, and we're expecting to have highs in the 60's and low 70's this weekend. no leaves are changing yet, though.

  7. So know what you mean! I grew up in Northern France, where fall is fall, and when I moved to Arizona for a few years I missed seasons SO much!!! It could kill me that the trees never lost their leaves. I'm not being dramatic here ;)

  8. I'm right there with you! But guess what, I'm wearing a sweater today! And guess what else, I totally planned a trip to IL to get a little dose of Fall in, myself. I went shopping this weekend to prepare and it was lovely. Incidentally, I'll be wearing a ton of green this season...not sure where that lemming came from.

    Have a great (and cool) Wednesday,

  13. i can totally relate. the only thing is i was born and raised here in socal and so i have no idea what a real Fall is and i've wanted to experience one (or two or three or forever) my whole life. it's my favorite season and i want a proper one.

    i'm sick of this intense heat wave and i'm so, so worried we'll have and Indian Summer. no thank you!

  14. I especially love September in Seattle because it's the last month of sunshine, but we get the best of both worlds. Nice 70 degree days but crisp cool morning and nights with the changing of leaves! September is quickly becoming one of my favorite months! :)

  17. I just moved to northern California from Virginia and though I hear it is gorgeous up here during this time of the year, it won't be the same. I am going to greatly miss the East Coast fall. I hope you do make it out to Virginia next month. And if you ever have the chance, go more up north during the fall. We went to Boston one October and it was amazing.

  18. I'm in LA and feeling the same way. I really wish there was a little bit of crispness in the air.

  19. I'm completely on the same page as you! I'm in LA and I can't wait for it to be cool enough to actually enjoy my Pumpkin Spice Latte!

  20. Seriously? January? You enjoy your hints of spring in friggin January. I'll be struggling to survive -40 and fatal windchill. It's not like Canada and California are THAT far away from each other. How 'bout I trade you?

    1. haha i MIGHT consider if we were talking about december..cold weather and snow gets me in the holiday spirit like nothing else!

  21. I don't think I could trade autumn for warm days in January. I just love it too much. But of course when January gets here and it'll be in the 0s and 10s here in Chicago I'll be wishing for warmer weather.

  22. I totally remember feeling this way when we lived in Santa Monica! 70-80* year round is nothing to complain about for sure, but I too like my Autumn time to be crisp and a little less "beachy" :)

  23. It's been around 90 degrees around here too and even though I like fall and all the things you've mentioned, I am having a hard time letting go of this summer. I wish it was a little cooler, but I know I always regret saying that in January when it gets down to 40 degrees at night.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i'm not a fan of this 90 degree weather either. I finally ventured more towards the coast tonight and the cloudiness was delicious. i just wish it could reach all the way to Poway! :]

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hope you are able to feel the cool weather soon! its not quite here in Houston either, but i am eagerly waiting to feel the first signs of fall! cute pants and shoes!

  27. Amen Whit! I've been crafting an awful lot...I think it's my way of telling fall to hurry up and make an appearance already.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know how you do it!! I neeeed Fall. I need the pumpkin and sweaters and chill.
    But I do love a good Palm tree. You win some you loose some I guess right?
    Ha!;)
