Did you see that?

The leaves are changing. Fall is really upon us. Just typing that made me want to grab my scarf and a steaming cup of coffee and go for a walk on a cool morning. Oh, and apple cider...mmmm. I CANNOT WAIT to take Avery to the pumpkin patch and apple picking. We've never been. I thought she was too young last year, but this year should be perfect. I want to buy mums for my front steps and put up my scarecrow. I want to sleep with my windows open and watch the curtains dance in the breeze. Ah, fall. Did y'all just picture it? You did didn't you? Ah, perfection. Lazy, steamy summer days will always be my favorite, but fall comes in a VERY close second. I remember being back home and looking out over harvested corn fields (*Mental note* photo shoot??) and watching the sun set and seeing the frost sticking to the old, dried stalks.

And now I want nothing more than to curl up on the porch with a blanket, the babe, and a cup of coffee.

I love fall! My birthday is in fall, which might be part of it. I looove the turning weather, the beautiful trees, and sleeping with the windows open under a nice warm blanket! I'm sure Avery will have an awesome time pumpkin picking!!
