I am looking forward to returning to blogging regularly, and I must say, ever since I've started blogging, it is nearly impossible for me to not "think" in blog posts. I am pretty sure that is how I process my entire life at this point.
So what have I been up to the last month or so?
I love every season (ok, except winter), but I especially enjoy Fall. And we have been taking full advantage of some of our favorite fall activities...
At the pumpkin patch
And making a homemade pumpkin pie...or five (and it's just the beginning of November!)
Smores...with homemade marshmallows & graham crackers. (And a bonfire of course!)
We visited a beautiful local homestead/farm. It was a lot of fun for Dmitri and it was inspirational for David & I as we explore what steps we want to take towards homesteading ourselves.
Dmitri found an egg!
I love goats.
I would have taken him home with me.
Brushing the goats
And it's the season for family photos...
It also means that I took graduation photos! But I'll save those for a little while. I do not want to jinx anything...
The cooler weather gave me an excuse for a DIY to hang by the door and catch our coats:
Total Cost: $16 (hooks from Anthropologie, wood and supplies from our scrap pile).Other random thoughts & happenings:
-I am nearly finished with a big project that has been dragging on for nearly a year...and it may or may not start with an "S" and end with cuddling up to read a book under a quilt with my littles on a sofa!
-Graduation. Less than six weeks away.
-Scheming about the holidays...my holiday projects, that is. And trying to figure out how to see our ever-growing sprawled-out family, get some much needed rest, and work on some major DIYs all at the same time.
-We are thoughtfully considering growing our family. By adding some members of the fur and feather variety. More on that as it develops.
What's new with you? I have really missed reading some of my favorite blogs and look forward to catching up with everyone.
