Onset of Autumn

And that makes me happy. We've had gorgeous beginning of autumn days...I've been wearing jeans (but still sometimes sandals!) for over a week!

The kids and I took my Mom to the airport yesterday...but we had a wonderful visit that went by too quickly...we even took a road trip to Texas to see my little sister and brother-in-law! (I'll post some photos from that trip later this week!) Today was a major catch-up day...laundry and planning October and picking up the house, with a little break for lunch with Brent at the park. Forgot my camera...but we really had fun playing on this beautiful day. Love seeing all three kiddos so carefree on a playground!

Here are a few other things that I've been enjoying the last couple weeks:

a stack of autumn-inspired magazines and catalogs (from left, World, Family Fun, Better Homes and Gardens, Serena & Lily, and Boden.)

a slice of Starbucks pumpkin bread and Earl Grey. (Or Espresso Truffle. Yum.)

magazine articles worth tearing out...like these from Real Simple.

crisp air and warm sunshine, perfect for reading stories outside :)

and finding a little time to work on a project long overdue, scrapbooking my summer 2000 trip to Maine with my best friend. Happy with the progress so far!

I am so happy that you have a long list of things that bring you joy. It's an awesome list. I could almost smell that pumpkin bread when I saw the photo. I'm a bit crazy it seems.

Take care!
