Houston Happenings | September

Bring on September!

Bring on the fall fun, football, Pumpkin Spice Lattes {heck, Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!}, and the beauty and cooler temperatures of fall that will grace our incredible city. Here’s hoping we can dig out the comfy hoodies and skinny jeans soon!

With all that exciting change in the air, please remember to extend some love and a helping hand to friends, family, and fellow Gulf Coasters in Louisiana and all areas being affected by hurricanes and extreme weather. Befriend an evacuee. Share an encouraging word. Donate if you can. Here is a great resource of love, support and to-do’s in our city for evacuees. Share, share, share! Houston has had its share of struggle during hurricane season, so support our neighbors in their hour of need. 

This September also marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. As we remember that momentous day that left our country forever changed, there are several events and exhibitions around Houston to give us all a chance to commemorate and honor those we lost that day. 

As we settle into the new school year and routines, create a little time to explore and enjoy! Lots of events, lots of fun to be had! Houston Moms has a ton of amazing content in store for you each week that will make this month even better. Stay in the know and have some fun!

Check out all of these Houston happenings in September::
