Finally, my enthusiasm for this lovely season is validated.
Two of my favorites.
Ahhh. How happy is my soul?
(And grateful to Pinterest, of course.)
It is time, my friends.
Time to pull out the autumn dresses.
The ones I purchased and washed and ironed back in July, when these beautiful days were but a vision, patiently waiting for their time in the sun.
Time to watch the trees in our yard begin their yearly transformation to the vibrant but fleeting array of colors that graces us for but a few days each year.
Time for chilly, early morning porch sitting with clouds like these above...
That quickly give way to glorious moments like this...
And a reminder to be Mindful in such moments.
To actually see these morning gifts rather than miss them while the mind races with to-do lists and worries and dinner plans.
Time to watch these little trees change and drop those leaves we longed for back in the spring...
Time to add autumn touches around the outside too,
to welcome friends and family to our country home.
These are my favorite, don't you know. : )
Time to replace the summer cook-out meals with the comforting, slow cooked meals that warm our souls.
Time to light a fall candle and plan autumn themed units on apples and pumpkins for our little homeschool.
Yes, it is time for these and many more.
This is indeed what we did here this past week, my friends.
And we have plans for much more autumn fun during this...our favorite season of the year.
Happy Fall, my friends.
Have a cup of pumpkin spice latte, or a mug of hot cocoa.
Grab a light throw blanket and sit on the porch.
Wait for the early evening darkness to fall, light a pumpkin scented candle, and watch a favorite movie together.
Our first choice...Halloweentown. : )
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
Thanks for visiting.
It warms my heart.
