September has always felt like perfect time for change. In fact, we’ve noticed that many people embrace change during this season. It feels like new beginnings and fresh starts.

Perhaps because we both spent so much time as students that the start of a new school year in September feels like a natural fresh start, or perhaps it’s the slight change in weather, reminding us that summer is now a memory and a new season awaits, and with it, new opportunities to step into and new memories to be made. 

Whatever the reason, restarting our blog now, felt like the perfect time for a fresh start.

Portuguese poet, Luís Vaz de Camões, knew how important change was when he said:

“Times change, as do our wills, What we are – is ever changing; All the world is made of change, and forever attaining new qualities.” 

-Luís Vaz de Camões, Sonetos de Camões
