I cannot wait till September is finally here. It is one of my favorite months; school starts, fall begins and the humidity of Washington, D.C. finally goes away. This September, I have my first conference to go to in NYC at the Jacob Javits Center courtesy of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I am beside myself with excitement! I cannot wait to be in the company of such great, like-minded people and to listen to the keynote speaker Deepak Chopra, and to see Joshua Rosenthal (the founder of IIN) speak in person. I only wish I could take the trip up to NYC as a weekend getaway by myself but it is way out of my budget, so instead of roaming the city and taking in the energy of Manhattan, I will be driving up with my husband and kids and staying with my in-laws for the weekend. Which is equally great since the kids will be very well looked after, but I will be going into NY feeling the sense of urgency to get back home to my kids once the conference is over. Anyhow, beggars can't be choosers and I am lucky to have a free place to stay!
So September is going to be a very New York heavy. I will be spending a week there from the Friday before Labor Day and then coming back for my conference the weekend of 17/18. I cannot wait! I also cannot wait for September 14th - the day my daughter goes back to school! It has been a long, long summer and we are both burnt out from 'trying' to have summer fun. Bring on the school year, please.
