So it is officially fall (although really to me fall starts after Labor Day), but I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. Usually I am ready to dive in to fall and the pleasant weather and the warm meals and pumpkins. But halfway through September part of my brain still thought it was August, and I only remembered last week that I have fall decorations to put up in the house.
The truth is that aside from almost forgetting that fall decorations existed in my house, I have been logistically ready for fall. Evelyn has several cute fall outfits (which makes me ready for the weather to cool down a bit more!). I’ve made a list of a few fall activities I want to do as a family. I’ve even planned Evelyn’s Halloween costume (costumes completely intimidate me, so I knew I needed to start early). But I just can’t emotionally catch up with how fast the seasons are moving. I’ve been told this has something to do with having a kid. ;)
This weekend though, we went down to Auburn for a tailgate and a football game and came back appropriately exhausted, so that does make things feel a bit more seasonal. And having some pumpkin muffins in the oven last week so that we could eat them at said tailgate helped as well. We had my dad’s BBQ and my favorite cookies. The weather wasn’t hot or cold (although it was cloudy), and although we came home hardly able to function from how little sleep we got, it felt good to be back down on the plains and to see family and friends.
Now for a fall full of weekends with more family and food and football (and pumpkins!).
