Love stories about old houses and family secrets.

Is anyone else happy that September has finally arrived? Of course, we’re a week into it, and here in Virginia the temperatures still feel like August (hello hot and muggy!). But it won’t be long before the air is cooler and the leaves are changing. The local farmers market already has pumpkins and apple cider for sale, and Halloween decorations are prominently displayed in the stores. As the poet says, “By all these lovely tokens, September days are here.” And speaking of poets, here is one of my favorite September quotes, penned by poet Helen Hunt Jackson:

“By all these lovely tokens, September days are here. With summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.”

Helen Hunt Jackson

So what are your favorite tokens of September?
