There is nothing better. That chill in the air, wanting to make soup, big sweaters. Leaves, pumpkins. Halloween, which oddly enough, I hated as a child. I know love as a mom.
Then there is Thanksgiving. No better holiday in my opinion. The best food, the best feeling.
I think Autumn is a time to hunker down. Figure out what will be important during the winter months. Find yourself and have quiet time.
It has moments like this too:
The pumpkin patch...full of my favorite things. Full of my happy kids running up and down the row. I love finding the just right ones. Letting the kids pick whatever they want.
I used Vintage Finds from Teresa Collins on this one. I believe this layout was used in Archiver's to promote this line...cool beans. I went with circles to go with the pumpkins.
A little burlap, one of my other fall favorites.
I have been thinking about all the devastation on the East Coast. Those families who can't enjoy fall right now, those who don't have homes left. It breaks my heart. I wish there was more that could be done.
Makes me realize the true gift of those autumn Sunday mornings...
