The month, not the Song by Earth, Wind and Fire, starts for some especially if you dont live in Florida, the fall season. Cooler nights, beautiful leaf colors, back to school, and Labor Day Celebrations are just a few of things September brings to mind.

Of course as our schedules get busy that could be why there is a National Relaxation Day in August. Now is also the time to plan things like Halloween Costumes. I know it’s at the end of next month but if its elaborate or expensive planning ahead will be easier on both you and your wallet. *Assuming there are any celebrations due to Covid 19.*
