Every year, I fall for fall.
Such promise in the end of blooms, the bewitching rustle of leaves, cold mornings and chilly evening winds that make me want to watch scary movies under a blanket.
Pumpkin spice lattes, personally chosen apples, the anticipation of spending a few months barefoot in my Uggs.
Afternoon bike rides
Quiet mornings at our favorite park
Borrowing a sweatshirt to combat the playground chill because I told him it was cold but did he listen? No. because he doesn't listen to anything I say ever, no mater how many times I say it. "They" say if your preschooler refuses a coat, you should let them experience the cold so they'll make a better decision next time. But where were "they" when said preschooler took the sweatshirt off my back and left me shivering in my yoga pants and t? Also, that sweatshirt is not so very big on him. Not any bigger than the boys' XS REI fleece he's wearing today, which makes me think I could save a few bucks by buying myself outerwear in the boys' section.
Today, they even let me style their hair with a little product-- a fall fashion miracle.
Speaking of-- check out All Kinds of Pretty! There are some great new posts up, and this week we are launching a Fall Denim Guide!
Okay, I have a favor to ask you. Does anyone have a great recipe for adorable and healthy-ish Halloween treats? I need to bring something to Harry's Halloween breakfast at school, and my working mom guilt demands I make it from scratch and that it looks Halloween-y.
