Fall: Just a Few of My Favorite Fall Things…

Fall: Just a Few of My Favorite Fall Things…

Fall is probably my favorite Season of the whole year. Spring runs a close second, with Summer and then Winter bringing up the rear. I love Fall. For so many reasons. And I was working on a pretty perfect post about Halloween-y things, but shelved that (for later in the week) to come tell you why Fall is my (probably) favorite Season of the year.

This Summer my kiddo is cutting short her visit with the g’parents. Sad for them for YAY for us because this means she’ll be home TOMORROW. I’m excited about this for so many reasons not the least of which, before she left we weren’t able to give our 5th grade graduate, her graduation present. Her mother is BURSTING to do so. And my kiddo KNOWS it has been sitting on the white table this WHOLE time (21 days and counting). She doesn’t know what it is, though. She’s … Read more…
