I look forward to September all year. Not only is it my birthday month, it’s the month where I eagerly hit the newsstand or peek into my mailbox for the September issues of my favorite magazines. I pile them up, grab a coffee and blanket and settle in. I have a somewhat embarrassing love for magazines…and as a result, September is like Christmas to me.
It’s the little things.
That concludes the August Break! It was quite a nice distraction for me and I think I’ll try to include more pictures in my daily posts. Thanks for so many positive comments on my photos, I’m glad so many of you enjoyed it as well!
Also, there will be a proper thanks in a post coming up, but I want to say now before it goes any longer that I am so appreciative of all of your comments on my post last week. It was a tough week for me, but reading all of your support helped me tremendously, so thank you so much.
p.s. Speaking of Beyonce (above)…I’m trying really hard not to be mad at her because I really like her. I’m happy her and Jay-Z are going to have a baby and be parents and blah blah blah, but I was so mad at her when she flipped open her jacket on the VMA’s and rubbed her belly in a circle a gazillion and one times. One would’ve been enough, B! I don’t know why it bothered me so much, it really doesn’t bother me to see women do that, but something about that being her announcement to the world about her pregnancy bugged me. I think it was her innocence behind it. She has no idea what it’s like to be on this side of things, so I was – of course – envious of the utter joy in her smile and so incredibly angry that I never get to feel that. Yet, she has every right to feel that way and rub her belly as many times as she wants, and I’m so glad she doesn’t need to know what this pain feels like. So I guess it’s all my issue! Go figure.
So anyway. Yeah. Beyonce.
