waiting for fall...and a baby

I'm sure I'm not the only girl around who gets a little giddy this time of year. The cooler temperatures. The reds and oranges. The spicy-smelling candles and coffee drinks. Scarves. Boots. It's just all so lovely and warm.

It's such a romantic season, I think, so it's only fitting that God would choose to bless me with a sweet little boy during this time of year. My heart is full thinking of my little autumn baby.

In the past, I've been chomping at the bit to break out the fall decorations. It's usually 85 degrees outside but you wouldn't know it from the coziness inside. I was a little late this year (all my energy has been redirected to other forms of nesting) but I finally got around to it. After all, I can't let my son be born in our favorite season and then come home to a house that doesn't smell like mulled cider.


So I pulled out some stuff, like my cutie little owl and the rag wreath I made last year.

And then I made a wreath for the front porch with some burlap and fall-esque fabric scraps. And I kind of love it.

And guess who else just welcomed a baby?


The mama bird who's been living in my portulaca. We think her little one came sometime over the last two weeks. So cute.

So tell me, what's your favorite part about fall??

  1. My favorite part about fall: The bright blue skies and the urge to get organized, set goals, etc. (is this a hold-over from back to school thinking as a kid, or the fact that I just had a birthday and am facing the year thinking about how I'm going to be older and wiser.....? not sure).

  2. The hot sun with a cool breeze over top of it. That hit of a snap in the air. The smell of dry leaves and evening fires. I'm with you - love fall! And fall babies. :-)
