First Day of Fall

"Mommy! MOMMMMMY!!!" Little feet come pounding across the house toward my office. "Today is the first day of fall! I get to wear my pumpkin shirt now!"

His excitement amazes me, since we live in Florida...there is no "fall" in Florida. Just more heat. A little less humidity. If we're lucky. Oh, and hurricanes. Nothing says "fall" like a hurricane, right?

These leaves were stowed in a suitcase in Silver Bay, NY, by my sister-in-law. She hiked into the Adirondack mountains to find the prettiest leaves for KID 1 and KID 2, knowing this little piece of fall would thrill and inspire them.

I'm seeing leaf rubbings in our future. And maybe some fall decorations, hung enthusiastically by a four-year-old in bright orange fishy shorts and long-sleeved jack-o-lantern t-shirt. Now that's style!

  1. You gotta love a child's sense of style. Other people's thoughts and concerns are not shaping their style, it's their own personality that shapes it!
