standing in my Saturday location

Fall is coming. I can tell because the air is crisp and cool and lovely. I adore Fall. I can’t really think of anything bad about Fall, except perhaps that Winter comes after. But that isn’t really Fall’s fault, is it?

What I am wanting to do is to transition my summer wardrobe into Fall. For example, I don’t want to stop wearing all my lovely floral tops. So I thought: hey, why don’t I just pair my summer basics with my Fall basics and see what happens? Plaid + Floral = love at first leaf.

Also, I really adore this location. It's our "Saturday Location"; because the light is just so lovely in the mornings here. Also, the smell here- BEAUTIFUL! Pine needles baking in the sunlight. Which is my favorite scent of all time. I would wear the sent of baked pine needles as a perfume, if they made it. It is just so evocative of Fall and new beginnings and home.

Also I am excited for Fall because for me it means:

weekday play groups commencing for my son and me
swimming lessons for my son
early morning yoga for me
running in the evening and not being too hot!
art classes for my son
oh, and last but not least, Fall clothes! How I ADORE Fall clothes!

I'm not the only one excited for Fall, am I?
