Fall-ing at My House

Since the middle of August, I have noticed a distinct change in temperature out in Blog-world. 

(Pottery Barn - I think 2009)

Fall Fever hit with a bang. 

By the last week of August, half of all the blogs in my reader were posting tutorials on how to make the cutest fall wreaths ever and how to make a pumpkin out of anything including but not limited to ribbons, corn husks, leaves, burlap, etc. etc. etc. 

Although I am a self-proclaimed lover of all things fall, I was hanging on to the last bits of summer with every fiber of my being. 

But last Friday - the 3rd of September - we left for Georgia.

And on Tuesday, the 7th of September we returned.

To this.

And this

And this

I am guessing that the trees in my back yard heard that September had hit....  

So much for me trying to keep it a secret from them....

I have resigned myself to enjoy the magic that is fall.  And I am excited about it.

But I plan to extend my summer as much as possible by appreciating the fact that my father-in-law opted for the HEATED pool.
