The days have cooled down and the leaves are crispy in the trees. Many have changed colors and it has drawn us in. I think lately I have just decided to say, "No" to most everything. Even this week as a cold bug is inviting itself in between the family members, I cancelled everything. Lets just stay home and drink in the simpleness of home. We are keeping to ourselves and there are moments when the bickering begins that I regret that choice until you hear that book on CD put on and a pile of kids playing while listening, the big sibling making a bowl of something for a younger, or the endless parade of, "Mom, I wonder why...". And we breathe. I breathe a moment of simpleness. It reminds me to be grateful for all that we have.
:: to embrace what we know to be the correct path for our family.
:: Little boys eager to take feed corn off the cob.
:: Kids learning to cook and then waking up to breakfast in bed.
:: the first fire in the fireplace for the fall. Seasonal family traditions are so special.
:: The smells of stock bubbling on the stove that reminds me it is soup weather. Welcome back!
See you soon.
