Weeks ago it was as if someone pushed a button and Autumn just was. There was that crispness to the air and the need to start to layer after a summer where we got to wear SHORTS and feel good about it (pretty significant for England).
We’ve got so much to look forward to in autumn. The food, Bonfire Night (that is an ACTUAL thing), traditional carnival in the Southwest, our annual Thanksgiving, celebrating six years of marriage, and of course, the arrival of this little one.
I feel my natural instincts kicking in that delivery isn’t too terribly far away. Today I spent hours de-cluttering and reorganizing our bedroom – and it.was.glorious. After doing my Big Night In post, I have this CRAZY desire to make S’more cookies. I want to paint. I want to do furniture renovations. My body is telling me to get this house ready and I’m glad I have (hopefully!) a few more weeks to do it.
And to spend time with this little monster once I begin my maternity leave.
Here’s to autumn!
