Enjoying Fall



It's 2:30 on a glorious, sunny Friday afternoon and what do I have to show for myself?  Not a thing, that's what.  The house is a mess, I haven't changed out of my pj's, and I LOVE it!  I've given myself permission to enjoy a lazy day with my little Chub Nugget (Brooke).  I held her when she took her nap, we played, watched a movie, and can I tell you how much FUN this is?!   She's my last baby, okay, so I'm enjoying every second because I'm so painfully aware of how fast it flies by.  I'm still in disbelief that my kids are as old as they are.  (I'm not any older, of course, but they are...)

So here's to a lazy Fall day!  (I took that photo this morning just as the sun was peeking through the trees.  Amazing.  It'll all be gone by next week - so sad.)

PJ's all day is a constant goal of mine. I consider it a stellar day if I make that goal. Congratulations on your fun day.

I keep telling my children that have children, still have two unmarried, to enjoy them because time does go by so fast. It seems like yesterday my children were youngsters. My oldest is 31 years old. Sometime so hard for me to believe! So I agree with you... enjoy those sweet and precious moments and also those days that aren't so peaceful.

My Annika is the same age as your Brooke and with her I don't feel as guilty taking lazy days as I did with my first couple kids. Enjoy your lazy days because everything else can wait.

Making me SO jealous of your gorgeous fall foliage. But I DO NOT envy the freakin' freezing temperatures you have coming up soon! But until then I will be green with envy of the delicious fall you're enjoying while I'm here in HOT Hawaii. (Seriously, Sept and Oct are the hottest months here.)
