My Favorite Things...

I wait....
somewhat patiently...
all Summer long...
for the first day of September...
when big beautiful pumpkins will find their way to my home.You see dear friends,
Fall is my absolute,
hands down,
favorite season of the year.
Living deep in the woods
surrounded by vibrant yellows, oranges, and crimsons,
one can't help but feel full of life.
Thankfulness and peace abound
while stepping out on the front porch and breathing deeply.
Lets not kid ourselves Mamas,
another one of my favorite things to arrive in the fall?
The big yellow school bus!
This year was slightly bittersweet
as my littlest one blew kisses from her new big girl desk in preschool.
"Goodbye Mama!" she shouted with a smile
as I quietly left smiling,
choking back big huge Mama tears.
That lasted just a few minutes when I suddenly realized...
2.5 hours to myself?
Whatever will I do?
It was time to head home,
sip pumpkin coffee,
nibble on pumpkin bread fresh from the Farmer's Market,
and sew some of the new items that I have since added to the shops.
Stop by and check out a few of our fall goodies!

Back for Autumn...
our Half-Pint Pumpkin Muffin hat!
Also Available for purchase is our
Cooked Turkey hat
which was inquired about by the Martha Stewart show.
They are great for photo props
or durable enough for everyday wear.
My little one sports hers through the month of October
and then switches to the Turkey in November.
It is then followed by the Elf in December.

she will eventually resent me for this act of child cruelty.
I'll take my chances^_^. For now,
I will cherish her toddler laugh,
tickle her little toddler piggies,
and find warmth in the way she cuddles my heart.Enjoy the stunning hues of Autumn as it dawns upon us.
Eat pumpkin until it is coming out your ears.
Relish the feeling of crackling leaves down your pants
from jumping in piles with your kids.
Go apple picking in your dorkiest overalls.
For these are a few of my favorite things...
minus the overalls.
Happy Harvest!
