Two days left till departure and knowing the weather won’t be the same when I get back I’m trying to soak in every ounce of the fire colored trees and autumn breeze. Campfires, pie/cookie baking and fall festivals!
October. things I’m grateful for
*Bernheim Forest Color Fest
*Our front step and that little guy who’s growing up so fast
*Momma Chicken and her babies + the first of our Copper Maran Eggs. Variety is rewarding
*Cooler weather and our dock on the river
*Finished handmade (by me) Christmas quilts started last year. Ready for a colder winter this time.
