is it weird that it's july and i already can't stop thinking about fall. in my defense, it is almost august.
autumn has always held a special place in my heart, which if you have kept up with my blog for any length of time, you already know. following the massive heat wave that nearly melted me every day for two weeks, a cold front settled in which i have welcomed graciously. the windows are all open.. curtains blowing throughout the house and bringing with it a sense of freshness unlike anything else. in the early mornings, it can even seem a bit chilly in the house. giddy.
it makes me want to curl up with a hot cocoa, put in you've got mail and find some pumpkins for my porch. too soon? maybe... but i'll be the first to take advantage when the time is still slightly too early.
i already envision having a big, pregnant belly tucked underneath an oversized sweater.. sitting outside watching the leaves fall and carving pumpkins. how dreamy and ridiculously perfect does that sound?
this year, autumn brings with it even more excitement in our household, as baby's due date will be getting close. if this summer flying by is any indication of how the rest of the pregnancy is going to go, it will be here before we know it. with the holidays thrown into the mix, my excitement (and anxiousness) is at an all time high and i don't see that changing anytime soon.
bring on the nursery planning and baskets full of mums!
