Welcome Fall!

Yesterday late afternoon was the official beginning of fall. The weather was gorgeous with temps in the 50's most of the day and edging up to the 60's by late afternoon/evening. By bedtime it was back in the 50's with another very crisp morning today. I so totally love this weather. I could live in sweatshirts and jeans year round and be happy.

Leaves are starting to fall, which is sad because it is just getting cool enough for them to begin changing color. I want pretty leaves! Halloween will be here before we know it.

I plan to start decorating this weekend, on top of the birthday party hoopla and such. Pictures soon!

September already!!

I can't believe it's September already but i'm relieved that it is. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, someday I hope to celebrate it in the Northeast United States so I can really see some true colored leaves. Our leaves do change here in the Midwest but it seems that in recent years they haven't been nearly as nice as they used to.

A week or so ago I dug out the fall decor and stored it in the laundry room. Today I managed to get some of it put up. I put faux fall leaves on my outside rail and along the stairway. I still need to put out my scarecrows in the flower bed and hang up my fall wreaths, but I have to find my hangers first. I think they are packed away with the Christmas stuff.

I'm wearing my pumpkin pajama pants that I got at Old Navy many years ago. They are THE most comfy PJ pants i've ever had.

Happy Fall!!!
