falling for fall

I love fall.

It is by far the most pleasant season in the northeast.  The humidity drops, the temperatures dip just enough so you are comfy in a t-shirt or maybe a sweatshirt and you don't even have to give up your flip-flops yet (if you find this to be a painful process each fall as I do).  Granted tomorrow is the first official day of fall and the temperatures will begin to plunge further there is something about those first sweater days, the leaves changing, pumpkins and apples and that back to school melancholy feeling that never goes away despite being a "grown-up".  I love it all and although this summer was a wonderful one I'm thrilled to greet autumn.

Hubby and I got a chance to get away all on our own last weekend to celebrate our 6th anniversary.  A rare and wonderful treat to be enjoyed before our three becomes four this winter.  Check out this beautiful inn in New Hope, PA.  I am a sucker for an old stone home.

Our little guy started pre-school which has proved to be a difficult adjustment but when I picked him up the other day the teacher told me he had been comforting some of the other children that were sad.  He was telling them "don't worry, Mommy will come back" and even asked the teacher to "put down" a friend of his that she was holding so he could "play with her".  He is such a sweet boy and an old soul and the realization that the child I left sobbing that morning had calmed down enough to comfort his classmates warmed my heart beyond words.  You don't realize just how much your heart will swell and ache as a mother before you start this gig.  Sigh....   the most wonderful and difficult job there is. 

I've been enjoying setting out some little touches of fall through the house. 

Turns out that my ceramic pumpkin makes a good place for Buzz and Woody to hang out.  Who am I to argue?

We might go get some Mums this afternoon to get some fall flair on the porch as well.  Oh, and I'll be having some of this tea and these yummy cookies for a snack later on.

Happy first day of fall tomorrow!
