seven things // labor day

Happy Labor Day and 1st day of September! How can it be September already? Actually, I’m pretty sure I say this same thing every single month of the year.

Labor Day is kind of the unofficial end of summer. Autumn won’t roll around until the 23rd of the month, so I’m trying to soak up as many rays as I can (even though this entire week has been pretty rainy). Though, I think this is the first time I have ever actually been super excited for fall.

I may not squeal over Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes, but I’m eager to try my hand on my own pumpkin flavored concoctions. Pumpkin french toast, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin shakes, pumpkin ravioli…. okay maybe not the last one. I also want to attempt spaghetti squash for the first time! Basically, expect many food-related posts this upcoming season! You may even need to bring a napkin when you read my blog just in case you drool over your keyboard.

So, to kick off this month, I’m going to throwback to a series I started back in February where I share a collection of things that I enjoyed, things that made me laugh or smile, and things that inspired me from the previous week. I haven’t done a very good job of keeping up with it, so here I am, dusting off the cobwebs, because seven things and weekly favorites are having a comeback!

“Make it a point to learn at least one new thing each day: the name of a flower that grows in your garden, the capital of a far-off country, or the name of a piece of classical music you hear playing in your favorite clothing boutique as you shop. If it’s time for bed and you can’t identify anything you’ve learned that day, take out your dictionary and learn a new word.

Do you really eat four spiders a year in your sleep?

Thankfully you can rest easy tonight. It’s just an urban legend. Realistically, the average number of spiders swallowed at night per person per lifetime is probably less than one.
