The last three months have been filled with more stress than I like to admit. Between unpacking boxes, networking, rebuilding my business and getting things established for the kids, I would say the slower pace of fall was definitely needed around here.
We got our first cool front this week and it has been bliss.
I leave the door open all day. I sit and sip my coffee slower. I bought all the pumpkin candles. Basically, it’s my favorite. All the smells and fun family activities are so nostalgic to me- and with the kids getting older, it’s been so much more important to me that they get to experience all the things I remember and love about the season.
Even more so now that we are so far from our family.
There is a little local farm stand that I pass often, and I decided it was the first stop on my fall bucket list. We explored, touched all the pumpkins, and then had ice cream (Blue Bell of course, cause Texas)
I’m looking forward to experiencing fall in Tuscaloosa. I’ve heard there is an actual color change (and I squealed a little, I won’t lie…)
I don’t have anything inspirational or enlightened to share today. Just babies and fall. Enjoy!
