We're still here and all safe and sound. Grateful for so much. Max and Ruby is on in the background, the kids are tucked on the couch, cozy blankets wrapped around them. I'm considering starting the first fire of the season in our woodstove. There's a definite chill in the air and it feels quite refreshing. However, I will wear my flip-flops as long as possible into this Autumn weather
Not gonna lie, I'm really not into Fall being here already. This has been one of the best Summer's in a long time. We did so much together and all the children were a bit older making outtings and overnight stays that much easier. Two years ago Paisley was a newborn, last year Jake was working all Summer on the carriage house, this year we just lived and enjoyed life. It was sweet and treasured! Sometimes it feels like I'm just flippin' the calender and I don't like that feeling. Like I'm living life and it's passing me by all in one moment. The constant of life.

It's "Fair" season around here. My belly is growling just thinking about all the yummy junk I will partake of! It's going to be cold tonight so maybe I'll pack some hot chocolate to go along with us. That might be a nice surprise when we get back to the truck to head home. Worn out kids and warmed up bellies go well together.
Hope you each have a lovely weekend. I am sure some of you won't, given the circumstances you are surrounded with. And yet, even in the midst of that, I hope you can see one thing beautiful.

"A whiff of woodsmoke on the wind, the first chill in the air, the woods just edged in gold. Light the first fire, time to put the 'home' in 'home sweet home'."~Susan Branch~
