1. My family was here this week, parents sister and nieces nephews, and of course that was a blast. My sister and Dad and I got to have some one-on-one time when we went out to shoot sporting clays, and my mom and sister and I had tons of fun playing games with the kids and doing all sorts of projects. Alex, my young nephew, is 4, and has gotten so much better at games recently. He loves the game spot-it which is really tons of fun for kids and adults alike. So many kids games are painful for adults, so I love finding ones which are fun for all. That one's definitely a keeper. The weather was beautiful and we took lots of walks with the kids and dogs; my parents had their dogs with them so we were a household of 6 furbabies for the weekend. Here's me sitting at the park holding onto the 5 on the walk (Missy stays home from walks).
2. Fall is really truly here! The trees are turning/have turned, the weather is cooling off, and this morning I even had frost on my car. I love fall and the cool weather; I think it's my favorite time of year. I collected a bunch of leaves and dipped them in wax and made simple garlands out of them, an idea I found on Erin Boyle's blog. I didn't have any beeswax, but I just used an old white candle. I made three garlands (none of which I have pictures of of course), and they're so pretty but also something I can toss at the end of the year and not have to store or pack up or find a box for. Here they are drying in my kitchen.
3. I loved these colors this morning! I was headed into work around 630 this morning and caught this shot of colors reflecting off the Devon tower. Rainbow sky! Made me feel hopeful.
Hope you're all having a good week. Linking up with LeeAnna as ever!
