Ushering In October

There isn't much I do not love about fall. The weather, warm vibrant colors, the coziness of sweaters, endless cups of tea and excuses to gather with family and friends before the next season sends us all into hibernation with it's contrast of colorless days and long cold nights. I always kick off October with a birthday and this year I was celebrated with flowers from friends, sweet messages on facebook, cards and a weekend with the people who were there when it all began, my parents.

I asked them what their group name should be. Mason offered "Jeff" and Ty suggested "the chicken nuggets".

We spent Saturday hiking and picnicking with my sister and her boys and then our group invaded a really cool orchard on Sunday where sweet treats were indulged and the kids played for hours. I then drove home for dinner with my crew. As far as birthdays go, I am quite blessed.
