I'm a 40-something working mom of an outstanding 18 year old high school graduate. Married for 20 years and looking for our lives to change in the next 6 months as our one and only child has joined the Marines!!
What a beautiful day it was yesterday!!! And this morning it is so cool and is just begging for Fall!!! These are the days that make me feel sooo good!! I have such great intentions when I get up in the morning - and hopefully this will be one of those days where I actually get done what I think I want to get done!! I pulled out all of my totes in the basement for Fall decorating yesterday and I plan to make my home all Fall-like today!! I'm going to burn some pumpkin scented tarts and just tear it up!! Yes, I am!!
We had a get together last night for my sweet Dad. He turned 80 on Friday and it was such a tough birthday for him. My Momma passed away in March of this year and this was his first birthday without her. I know he thought of her all day and was so sad. They were married 61 years and were so in love!! They were that older couple that sat on the same side of the booth - held hands always - went everywhere together - and loved each other so deeply. We got together with Dad, my two brothers and their wives, a couple of great cousins and their wives and two of my nephews, new niece-in-law and our brand new baby of the family - a four month old great nephew!! I so expected to walk into the house and see my Sweet Momma there - it made my heart so sad that she wasn't. But we all braved through it and rejoiced that we could be there together to celebrate my Dad. Delicious food of course but most of all being together with my Dad.
So for today - get my Fall on!!! I will, I will, I will!!! I've already been on Pinterest this morning to get inspired......this will happen!!!
Have a Fall-tastic day!!!!
