this is not a drill:

fall is coming. I repeat, fall is coming.

<insert me giddy and jumping up and down here>

Seriously, so EXCITED that the heat of summer is winding down, and that all the apple, pumpkin, and cooling weather of goodness of fall is coming. When I walked into target today (have not been in 2+ weeks!) they had all kinds of fabulous Halloween and fall goodies, costumes, and even (gasp) a row of Christmas cards. I punched the air victoriously and thought about crafts I could make.

Then, at the grocery store they had a huge box ‘o pumpkinsĀ sitting out. (hoorah!)

Oh, and there is this cuteness. Snapped this photo yesterday when we had a cool morning that I could put on the ensemble legitimately due to cold. Need some more (better) photos, but I don’t do posed photos longer than 3-4 minutes MAX with either of my girls… so I have to wait for another day. That owl and those stripes on her… ahhh! Such cuteness!!!

Well I’m off to dream of apple pies, pumpkin baked goods, and being able to wear a sweater… because I’ll be dreaming a bit longer… but fall my friends is definitely coming soon!
