I can honestly say that the fall is one of my favorite times of the year (Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays and warm Spring days being the other faves). This afternoon, I lounged around in sweatpants under a cozy blanket and listened to the rain fall outside. Being an Oregonian, enjoying the rain is a rare occurrence. Just wait a couple more months and I will be complaining about how depressing our gray weather will be. But today, I was calmed and relaxed. The air smelled so fresh and clean, and the sun breaks were beautiful. I put out my small collection of fall decor this last week, and planted mums in the front yard. The leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees, and I can hardly wait a couple more weeks to take pictures of the boys playing outside. Holiday bazaars are just around the corner, daylight savings is in a few weeks, and before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us (stores are already bringing out Christmas stuff!!). I am looking forward to slowing down a little bit, earlier bedtimes, and fall activities. What a beautiful season ... I am so excited it is here!!
