Hello Fall!

Its that time of year again... my favorite time, when the season starts to drift from fry eggs on the sidewalk hot, to knee socks & hot chocolate. I get so excited over the date on the calendar that tells us Fall is officially here, whether it truly feels like Fall yet or not, I know its coming! This is like the beginning of an awesome movie with badass sequels following shortly behind. Coming up, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, then a whole new year to start it all over!

For now I am giddy over the cold weather fashions being set out in stores, the changeover of candle smells to Fall-ish flavors (cinnamons, pumpkins, apple blossoms, etc.), the aisles of candy and costumes to choose from... the smell that reminds me of the bottom of a trick or treat bag with all of its mixed candies and the scary fun from going door to door yelling "trick or treat"!

Speaking of Halloween... two guesses at what my 3 are going as this year?
Yeah, that's right, this momma is already on it. ;-)

As we kick it into holiday planning mode, we will continue doing our chores,

 feeding and scrubbing messy babies,

and we will continue to have fun while cruising through & enjoying the upcoming holidays!

Rapuntzel, Rapuntzel, let down your hair... lol.

Oh, and last minute impromptu silly picnics... because Fall is good for those too!

* Oh, and completely off topic, but have to add... after an ambulance ride to the hospital this week because I thought I was having a heart attack (no joke ), there is a lesson to be had. Even more so during the soon to be hub-bub of the holidays. My advice (that I dont seem to listen too, but I am going to try to more)...take time to  relax some and dont get so stressed if the baseboards in the house are dirty, or the laundry rivals Mount Everest, or you run out of time to make sure your hair and makeup are perfect, or your desk has so much paper on it you could open your own pinata' making factory. No one cares if things are perfect and if they do, they are not around for the right reasons anyway. So there. Relax. Deep breaths and enjoy the day you are given.

Take care of yourself. You are the only you there is.

P.S. - We actually had a wee bit of desperately needed rain! Break out the rainboots and pray for more rain!
