I don't know how to explain how much I love the next three months. I am in all my glory - I love the weather, the decorations, the leaves changing, the crisp mornings, football even more, the excitement from the kids, the candy, I could go on and on.
So, we kicked off my favorite time of the year and went apple picking. We headed out west into the mountains to an orchard called Stribling. It is gorgeous out there. We picked apples, we ran through the orchard, we ate apples and we took pictures. It was a little warmer then I would have liked but it was honestly, perfect. Mary and Henry had such a great time and the fresh air was good for everyone.
After apple picking, we headed home and Mary napped and I well, I got the itch that it was time to bring out the witch. I started to decorate for Halloween. Yes, my rule is Oct 1st but that is only tomorrow and the weather was so gorgeous, so why not. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting there. This is the front porch. It still needs a little something but I don't know what yet.
Here is the mantle, this is complete. The rag wreath came from Two Little Birds (her shop link is over on the side of the blog), the spiders from Target last year, The Boo from HomeGoods. I think it turned out great this year. I do something a little different every year to it.
The rest I will post later this week. I need to finish up some odds and ends on the dining room table and the front hallway. The outside will take shape over time. We are throwing a kids Halloween party on Oct 25th, so I want the outside to be extra special this year.
I am so excited to experience the next three months with the kids. Henry is getting excited and Mary well she will get there.
Happy Fall Y'all.
