hello autumn

Summer 2007 has come to a close and we bid a fond farewell to the long, sunny days of summer and cheerful hello to the shorter, and not so sunny days of autumn. Gone are the days of shorts, t-shirts and flip flops, time to break out our fuzzy sweaters, yummy scarves and cozy thick socks.

The girls and I decorated for Halloween a little early this year ... Christmas is just around the corner and I tend to get a little ahead of myself! Halloween usually gets skipped (mostly because it's not my fave holiday) and then I'm 'Thankful' that it's almost Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I love the colors of this season, all the leaves changing and the beautiful, early sunsets! I am just totally in love with Christmas! Come October 1st the merry tunes of my favorite holiday will be filling the air at our house and in my van! I just can't wait sometimes - especially when I go to Costco and see all their Christmas stuff out!!

So long Summer, you were good to us this year, thanks for all the sunshine, blue skies, and time to be outside with friends! Hello Autumn, let's go inside, have some hot chocolate and talk about all the stuff we have to get done before Christmas!

Don't get me wrong, I love spring and summer. But NOTHING compares to the fall and winter holidays! We have to plan some really fun stuff this year. I'm excited to play with you guys...and make hot chocolate. With milk.

OH, Em, I share your love for Christmas (and your inability to wait!) I am so excited to start listening to my holiday tunes; you've gotten my all giddy about it. And is that your door, (pictured in this post,) adorned with that darling hanging arrangement, 'cause it's fab!
