Welcome Autumn?

It is 80 degrees this afternoon. My kids stayed after school for a running club to get ready for a fun run in two weeks and they are complaining it is hot. And it is, especially compared to the last week or so.

So why are we talking about Autumn? Well, it starts on Monday. And Lisa at Polka Dot Cottage is planning on celebrating. And I am going to join her. Why?

Because Autumn (or Fall as I say more often) is my favorite season. I love all the colors. I love the crisp air. I love sweater weather where we don't have to wear jackets over top.

Take all that together and I love Fall because it makes GREAT pictures!!!!! Everyone looks great in sweaters with the colorful leaves and green grass behind them. They have fun hanging out in the parks without the bugs and without being too hot. And having fun makes for GREAT pictures!!!!!

Lisa is planning on celebrating Autumn by posting how everyone is ushering in the new season. We'll all post about how we are celebrating on Monday.

So, to me, celebrating fall means I need to get out there this weekend and take some pictures of my kids! I feel some color coordinated, long sleeve, blues/golds/greens shopping coming on! Woohoo! (Well, woohoo on the pictures, not on the shopping...not into shopping.)

So, who wants to join me? How are you celebrating the beginning of Autumn? Stop over at Lisa's and join in the celebrating!

I'm so glad you stopped in to say "hello!" Thank goodness we both have pictures up or people would think we were commenting back and forth to ourselves (not that there's anything wrong with to myself all the time). :P
