goodbye summer, hello autumn

Today was chaotic.

Today was Eloise's first day of soccer practice.

Today it rained in the late afternoon/evening.

Today is the last day of August.

Tomorrow is the first day of September.

In 13 days I'll have a 5 yr old.

In 21 days it will be the first day of Autumn.

Now it is time for baking, playing outside in the crisp fall air, organizing already organized closets, buying new pants to replace last years outgrown pairs, drinking up pumpkin spice americano's, baking anything and everything pumpkin, and filling my house with red, orange, and deep red. It is a giant deep breath of fresh air for me.

I always wish we lived closer but our love for autumn would be waaaay fun if we were neighbors. Maybe you could come over and help me make things look pretty! I miss you.

hello fall friend :)

hoping your second unofficial day of fall is simply delightful...and wishing someday that we actually get to celebrate our favorite time of year in real life!
