It's Fall. One of my favorite seasons of the year. It's the time of year when the weather cools, the days get dark earlier, the wind picks up, colors change. It seems that fall this year has come on quickly, there have been fewer 'indian summer' days, an almost immediate weather shift. Ellie is wearing sweaters and leggings versus sundresses to school, I am turning my heat on at night before I crawl into bed and craving a cup of tea and a cookie. I am anxious to hit the pumpkin patch and hunt for perfect pumpkins with my kids. Fall also means the birth of my first born, my Ellie, my sweet little girl. Her birthday is next month, and I can't wait to plan a fun party for her. Today was an exceptionally lovely day. It was bright and sunny, yet the temperature was cool with breezes. I think it was perfect weather. I wanted to just sit outside with a good book and SOAK it in. I didn't get to do that, but I did get to spend it with my two girls, running around enjoying their friends' birthday parties. I love this time of year. Here is a picture of Sophia and Gradon. She ADORES being a big sister. They are pretty cute together.
