Happy Autumn

*image here on Etsy

Hello friends!
Can you believe Autumn has arrived?!  I am so very excited!  I checked on one of my favorite Etsy shops the other day and saw this darling print.  That quote--spoke to my heart this year.  I have had an extremely busy summer with some big life changes and it has felt a little crazy.  Thus why I have gone missing around here, but I am ready to turn over a new leaf:)  I have big goals for this fall--most importantly to enjoy this season that I love, with all my heart.  I want to live with purpose each day, enjoy old family traditions and even start some new ones--like a weekend to explore the Smokey Mountains (we keep talking about doing that but haven't got around to it yet)
 


On my Fall To Do list ....so far:)
Spend more time in my scriptures
Write in my journal more
 Bake pumpkin bread
Replace my frazzled summer blooms with mums in all my flower pots,
Take some family hike--maybe Fall Creek Falls?
Pick up some Leaves wall flowers from Bath and Body Works
Find a local orchard and pick some apples
Make applesauce and an Apple crisp--yum!!
Add soup to our dinner menus
Take the boys to the BYU vs Middle Tennessee game
Find a good book and cozy blanket--any suggestions??

What are your plans this fall?

It's so great to see you back and blogging again! I have sorely missed your posts and updates on your sweet family. Up here in Chicago we are having a week of sunshine in the high 70's so I feel like summer is just starting and now it's over haha! I love fall and the turning of the seasons. Welcome back!

SO GLAD to see you are back! I almost emailed you several times over the summer - I was worried about you/your kiddos - especially your little one with that darned heart issue! I pray that all if well and you are just busy with boys - like me!!!! Love the list!!!
