I shared recently that I just really get homesick for Virginia in Autumn. Those neon reds and deep oranges and sunshine yellows that blanket the entire state have really been missed, but theres no sense in whining about what isn’t when you can enjoy what is instead. I was so thankful for the first sub-70 degree day this past week and that we needed sweaters to play outside. The cold front was just a tease and isn’t here to stay, but we took full advantage of the Fall feeling by heading to the pumpkin patch. Here are some photos from a really sweet day.
My mirror-selfie game was weak this past week but here are 5 outfits from the past 7 days nonetheless! It included the typical stuff like school drop offs, homeschool, workouts and mom life but I also had a visit from a friend, a sisters night and a pumpkin-patch family day. Let’s dive in!
If you were here last week, you know the drill! I am out of office to prep for my Holiday Collection of artwork, but I haven’t come empty handed. Here is a roundup of some of my favorite Fall posts since it’s October 10th and that’s Fall as Fall gets.
Okay friends, it’s painting time again. See that photo up there? It’s me contemplating all the things-namely whether or not I’d create a new Holiday Collection this year because the schedule just hasn’t allowed much time for it. But theres a phrase, isn’t there? That one we see floating around Pinterest and filling our feeds on Instagram? It goes something like this: Don’t say you don’t have
time, say you won’t make
time. And it’s true to some extent-although part of being a woman and a mother and a wife and a believer in general is laying down our lives, right? Trading in those hours we’ve spent on passions in the past-whether they be statistics or sleeping-in order to serve the ones around us?
Week two! I didn’t photograph my tee and shorts the two days I worked out (because you can’t buy my 2004 reebok outlet shorts anywhere, friends) but I snapped the rest of my outfits as promised. This week was the same balance of homeschool, school drop off, evening Bible Study and date night.
September was a beautiful whirlwind of a month. Like most of you, it meant the new school year started and with it came a whole new routine to adjust to. Finally, at the very end of it, we are completely settled into the schedule and Fall just feels so wonderful already. Before we jump into October with both feet, I’m reflecting back on the things I watched, ate, read, listened to and wore in September. Here we go!
