It’s October 1st and in my mind, the unofficial first day of Fall. I just couldn’t bring myself to think summer was over yet, especially this past weekend in Boston when temps hit 80 degrees (it was soooo nice!). But alas, the leaves are indeed those beautiful golden colors again and the local Spirit Halloween store has set up shop down the street. I found my favorite boots from the back of my closet, and gifted myself a sweet new leather motorcycle jacket to stir up some excitement about the incoming cool air. It’s not that I dislike Fall, I just really, really, really love summer, so it’s with a tiny bit of disdain that I welcome the season. Once I get over the fact that my addiction to sandals has to be put on hold, the awesome activities of Autumn start to bring back that lovin’ feeling for apple pie. Here are a few things I’m falling for this Fall:
This 101 activity list is really fun, and I especially like #7: “Make cards for special friends and mail them *snail-mail*” Last year I sent our Bird Word Thanksgiving card as seen above, to our close family and friends. (If you want a little chuckle, check out this video of the actual song.)
How awesome is this Pumpkin Maternity Shirt from Mamagama!?!?!

But the very best thing about Fall — my very favorite thing for any season, but especially in the Fall, is cuddling with my boys on a chilly night — just watching a movie or reading them a book (they are really into this series at the moment). If the end of my beloved summer means even more snuggles with my babes, then I’m definitely cool with that. Happy Fall friends!
