It's Here! It's Here!

Happy first day of FALL!! Per usual, I was mostly ready as soon as July 4th happened. I'm a sweater + so naturally July + August + really most of September aren't my glory days. We've had a wonderful Summer, filled with so much fun, but now it's here... 
Fall, the sweet spot. We're ready for you!
A few things we look forward to in the Fall are as follows...

The weather. Duh. 
We have mostly been melting since July, but the past two weeks have been windows open at night + chilly mornings. We've even turned on the fireplace a few times with coffee.

Fall TV line up. 
Guyssss, it's that time of year, where scripted TV drama is at it's very best. This is Us starts up again next week + I really haven't been so excited for a new season of a show since Parenthood. This, plus Will & Grace is returning. Need I say more?

The leaves. 
I love it when my city is my favorite color! Abel has already found a few yellow leaves just for me, and lucy excitedly found her first red leaf + had to show me too! I've shaped them well ;)

The Pumpkin. 
Pumpkins are like the color yellow. You can't look at them + not be happy, and in my case take a picture. Pumpkin patches, Jack O Lanterns, also see: chocolate chip pumpkin bread. 

Hocus Pocus. 

Visits from family. My cousin (and her babe) + my aunt are coming in just one week for their annual visit and I can't wait. Porch mornings + coffee, and keeping my cousin up way too late talking her ear off... Followed by my Mimi + Poppi and another cousin (also with babe) coming to visit!! Really. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. 

The clothes. 
Am i the only person who gets sooo bored of wearing the same things after a while? I basically have 5 good uniforms that I wear all summer, and never found a good pair of sandals this year, so I'm hands raised for layering + boots. 

The festivities.
Pumpkin patches, the Sunflower Farm, Apple Picking, Pumpkin Carving, Eating, Smores + Patio Lights, Nights with Friends. Soooo good.

We talk Halloween costumes mostly year round over here, but it's been a heavy topic of conversation these past few weeks. I'm hoping to have a group theme, but my chances are mostly slim because we let the kids choose what they want to be + it changes every day. So, I will put off buying as long as I can, and see where we land!

Happy Fall!! XOXO
