Please hang on tight a few more weeks.
I can't get enough of all the colors.
And then there is that smell - fall leaves smell.
Dear Mother Nature
Thank you for all the days with windows wide open.
And please let the weather man be wrong.
He says snow next week, just in time for trick-or-treat.
Show him who is boss.
Dear Slightly Chubby Baby Theodore Thighs
Because of you, we are out of the 4th percentile and rocking the 13th.
We officially have a big roll and I would love some more.
Dear Hometown Grocery Store
I appreciate that you have not moved a single item since I was little.
You may have only one of everything, but you still have at least one.
If I forget something, it is only a few steps away.
Dear Pumpkin Butter
Where have you been all my life?
How did we miss each other in the love-of-all-things-fall-and-cinnamony?
I ate you on toast and on a waffle this morning.
Oh yeah, and straight off the spoon.
