I love the freedom of summer. The ease of moving between the outside and indoors. Casual gatherings with simple food, everything just seems easier. Going riding with Buggy on our beach bikes with a basket full of snacks!
Well if you go into any retailer you will know that fall began at least 6 weeks ago and I'm not sure , but I believe they have begun pushing Christmas on us as well! Does it drive you nuts? I can't fight it anymore, I give up and I'm letting go of summer! Happy? I even pulled out my sweatshirts and jeans, it's officially Fall. Well, in my world at least. My birthday was just this weekend which is usually my standard measure for the beginning of the new season.
Buggy and I made a very cute Halloween cookie house over the weekend. Just like a gingerbread house but with a 'haunted' deco style. Lots of candy bats, gumdrops and drippy icing all over it. Plenty of icing and gumdrops inside a certain little girl too!
We went to a party on Saturday that was lots of fun. Probably the last outdoor party until next May. It was a little chilly but no one seemed to mind too much. There was a ton of good food, including several bushels of steamed crabs, a moon bounce for the kids and pumpkins to decorate with stickers and sloppy paint. Fun times all day.
