oh fall, it’s a kooky time of the year – isn’t it?
to some it means fashion week… to some it means the return of hockey [miss you already, husband!] … to others it means all things pumpkin spice and really all things pumpkin, pronto! … and of course the return of dreaded allergies – the worst.
but in my little world, it means…
…my fav wardrobe ensamble – jeans, long sleeves and flip flops! i also do not discriminate on the shorts and long sleeve look…. also a favorite.
…but, once it starts to get just a liiiiitle too nippy for flips, the boots return and that is a look i love. i’m a little late to the party but, boot socks may just be my jam this year.
…each night saying in horror “it’s only 6:30?! and it’s already DARK out!!” ew, this may be my least favorite thing. november 1st… not looking forward to you.
…but, oh the smell of apple cinnamon all throughout our house snaps me right out of my seasonal affective disorder! (can you believe that’s a real thing?)
…trips to linvilla orchards.. gosh, i love that place! however i will say it’s best to go early in the season… because the longer you wait, the crazier ‘pumpkinland’ becomes!
…and of course it means figuring out each new day and season with my precious peeps. i love them a ridiculously huge amount and each new season brings such fun things for them to experience and even for us to enjoy as their parents. watching them search for the perfect pumpkin, or hop into a pile of crunchy leaves makes my heart so happy! [i could do without watching them eat candy apples though… it’s not a pretty sight!]
…hmm, what else… oh! fires in the fire pit in our backyard on a cool night, pretty fall flowers, how gorgeous the trees look before the leaves fall, annual new hope trip [possibly], football!, and of course… thanksgiving!
