It's coming...

Pumpkins, apples, squash and root vegetables, kettle corn made the "right" way outside in the crisp air, leaves to rake and play in, hot chocolate, hot cider, hot tea, hot chai, hot (decaf) coffee, Halloween, my husband's birthday, biking a few last times before the snow flies, mittens when you don't really *need* them yet but they're just fun, knitting, reading, cuddling under quilts, soups on the stove, cold mornings/warm days, sweaters with sandals, hayrides, the smell of the fall air in your sweater when you take it off at the end of the day, bonfires in your backyard under blankets, s'mores, mulching over the perennials to help them sleep through the winter, my husband listening to football while I make vegetarian chili...and this year...the pure excitement of sharing all of these things with our baby Jack. Oh...how I love fall!

Wait a minute, FALL IS COMING? What ever happened to all the Minnesotan Mosquitos? What about the long summer days that promised endless opportunity, now gradually being wisked away with the increasing darkness that is the prelude to Fall? Why haven't I had more than just one ear of corn all season? Where is my Panic Button?!
