Fall is in the air.

Even though temperatures are hitting the 70s (what the heck Washington?) autumn still reigns. Foggy mornings, beautiful autumn colors, chili on the stove...Yesterday I picked up a big pot filled with beautiful mums. I love opening my door and being greeted by a smile of flowers "Welcome to fall" they seem to shout!

“Don't be afraid to be amazing.”

This school year my lovely cousin and I have started a tradition of going to Stampadoodle on Thursdays for a few hours to visit and create. It gives us a chance to catch up, decompress and is our true "day off" in the week. Moms don't always get days off so it is wonderful to spend a few hours, mid-week, to just stop and spend time on ourselves. 

“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
—Bertrand Russell


  1. What a wonderful idea! Enjoy!

    The mums are beautiful...I just added some to my front porch and agree with you about their cheerfulness...

  2. Brilliant plan, Jerrie!! My "time off" is usually spent at the gym (these days) or grocery shopping/running errands by myself. Clearly, I need to rethink that "plan."

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love this post, and that last quote, and your time off!! Sounds wonderful! Mamas need some time, so glad you've made a way to have yours. :)


  4. Just want to say that I love your quotes in this post... you should link up with us for Sunday Citar sometime!! Come on over :)



Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
