So I am on my 5th pumpkin latte and 4th batch of pumpkin bread and 100% in fall. Its colors, smells and textures. All of it! I am a bit delayed in marking things off the “leading up to the holidays” list and apple picking just happened last weekend. It will be shortly followed by pumpkin picking but I am good with that. Sometimes I start too early and pumpkins are sagging by Thanksgiving.
My heart skips a beat when you wake up in the morning and as we are loading kids on the bus we can see our breath. I am much more a put more clothes on person then a hot and sweaty (you don’t want this lady to take too much off) person. So I welcome the cool temps and the fires at night.
We are on the mend over here and looking forward to decking this place out with a bit more festive color. More to come! For now here is our family weekend.
Silly puppies and smiles.
Mudpie in a cone, anyone?
Chilly morning wake-ups.
Michigan neighbors and friends.
Carmel apples on the bumper of the car.
and apples…..made into fresh apple butter.
Speaking of apple’s I have been reading about all the benefits of this stuff. I put it on my salad every day but they say to drink it. I am day 3 into it (I add some water to it). I have not contracted the germs flying around this house. Maybe it is working! Does anyone else do the same? I am interested in your success stories!
The coolest part of sifting through these pictures on Wednesday is that we are already half way to another week. Looking forward to more fall festivities. I am pulling out the boots and sweaters today! It feels good to point my lens at what is most important to me. These gorgeous kids that I am very grateful for. Taking them in before the October craziness begins!
PS if you are local to Chicago or Michigan and planning family pictures with me this year. Make sure to get on the books! The only weekend available in Oct is the 18th and 19th. Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want one of those days.
Happy Hump Day! Katie
