Welcome, October

Yesterday Steve asked me, "How is it October already?" Good question! I don't really know how it's possible that summer is already gone, but I'm happy to welcome October. It's always been a favorite month of mine, partially because it's my birthday month and mostly because it's f a l l. I actually decorated for fall this year (some pictures coming soon) and it makes me so happy. Every time I glance at one of our humble little trimmings it warms my heart. I'd need to order that print (from Lindsay Letters shop) and put it in a gold frame somewhere asap.

There are many reasons why I love fall, but out of everything I think my favorite part is the extra emphasis on spending time together with family doing crafts, baking and making precious memories. We've already been enjoying some of our favorite fall activities, including baking pies and wearing warm scarves and beanies.

I'm also working on planning halloween costumes for the kids and acquiring the various pieces I need for them. Last year Riggs was a hobbit and it was so cute and easy. But now that I have two, I'm pretty much obsessed with 'matching' costumes. Wondering what I have in mind for this year? Here's a little hint:

On a completely unrelated note, I know it's been a little quiet around here, but you guys. I have some really fun posts planned for this space. I just need to sit down and actually type them up! Next week I'm hoping to share some of my favorite mama-made clothing and accessory shops for my babies as well as a post on my field guide for adjusting to life with two kids.

Thank you for hanging in there and continuing to follow along with me despite the occasional radio silence.  I love you all! xoxo


  1. I love it! October is also my favorite month, for Halloween purposes mostly. Their costumes will be so cute :)
