Hello, Fall!

I was a little distracted yesterday with work and keeping up with the demands of a chatty toddler but I noticed you had arrived. The crisp air and wet swings at the park reminded me that it was time to put another layer on my bare arms and to take stock of our scarves and hats.


Looking forward to colorful skylines, hot cider, sweaters, extra quilts on the bed, candy corn stashes, hay rides, gathering leaves, crimson mums, costume making, starry nights, potato soup, socks on little feet, snuggling in bed, apples, acorns, nesting, and the craftiness that seems to invite itself in with the colder weather.


Sebastian has been asking us when Ruby will come out. It seemed simple enough to explain she'd be here after the pumpkins since her due date is just after Halloween. It slipped my mind that pumpkins show up and stick around for about six weeks. He's noticed. I've decided to get more specific with my reply and say she'll be here after we go trick-or-treating. Plus, I'm really ready for some pumpkins on my porch.


xoxo,
Rachel

p.s. These are adorable.

It's definitely feeling like fall over here in the UK - much cooler weather and another layer are becoming a must again. Yay!

It definitely feels like Fall is so much more calmer than any other season.
