It feels like I'm falling for Fall...

I can feel it...Fall is just around the corner. It's mid September and the temperature is starting to change. Rather than being 90+ degrees it, today it's just 68 degrees out. We've had the windows open all day, took a nice nap with a breeze blowing in. Last night, it was dark by 8pm! This week we had potato soup one night and chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes. As I sit here blogging, I'm thinking about how I could be putting up all my fall and Halloween decorations. Since our impending arrival will be here around the beginning of October, it probably wouldn't hurt to put those out early.

I can't wait for the leaves to fall and crunch under our feet. To sniff the top of my newborns head and savor that baby smell! To visit the pumpkin patch. To enjoy the scent and flicker of fall scented candles in scents like pumpkin, ginger, and spices. For crock-pot and soup weather. For fall TV shows. To get the kids all dressed up for Halloween. To smell the fireplaces. For {non maternity!} jeans and long sleeves. Sipping on pumpkin spice lattes, baking homemade breads and going on walks without sweating to death {or having contractions while doing so}.

The changing of the seasons is almost symbolic this year, with Sweetcheeks arrival occurring at the same time. It makes the entire experience even better!

I love Fall!
