as i write this, the house smells like maple glazed bacon and the sounds of football fill the living room. an hour ago, i was tearing through boxes of fall decorations. i have pumpkins and spiders, skulls and skeletons…even handmade cinnamon candles (i made them!) sit atop the fireplace mantle. but that’s not all! saturday evening was spent perusing the pumpkin patch for the perfect pumpkins. sigh.
…ish…the AC is on because it’s 90+ degrees outside.
however, i’ve managed to capture fall, regardless of the heat.
over the last several days, i’ve taken some “fall inspired” photos. today, i’d like to share.
ps. i don’t know the little girls in the picture above. i just couldn’t resist the littlest girl’s outfit! those tights with that dress! adorable.
in other weekend news…my little man decided to take the top bunk off his bed. he now sleeps in a “big boy bed”. we also moved his desk into his room. ahhhh…he’s getting so…teenager-ish. he’ll be 10 in 18 days. double digits. eek!
i’m thinking about having an outdoor party…maybe with a jumpy, old-fashioned games (like 3-legged races, bobbing for apples, a pinata, the egg/spoon race, etc), and then maybe a candy apple making table??
any ideas? for games and such? let me know!
i gotta start planning!
but before i go…thank you so much for reading and commenting on friday’s post. one of my favorite things about blogging is when my readers share their own, similar stories. it’s easy to feel alone in this world, right? but i’m always humbled a bit when i learn that others go through the same stuff, the same hardships, battle the same inner conflicts, etc… so thank you, thank you for reminding me that i’m not a freak. or maybe that…you’re all freaks, too! haha! kidding.
