Fall Break

I love Fall! The weather turns cooler. The leaves start to change colors. Football, sweaters, marching band, hayrides, apple pies, chili, hot cocoa, and pumpkins! Everything seems fresher. I have more energy, when it is cooler outside. I think we also sleep better. Before we know it, the holidays will be here. It is very important to be thankful and grateful for each and every season. Find something you love about each one and find a reason to celebrate it!

We will be leaving for Destin with friends in a few days, and I cannot wait for a slower, more relaxer pace that comes with a vacation. It is a time to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life as we know it. To get away from cooking, cleaning, litter boxes, and laundry. To get away from homework, gymnastics, band practice, and bedtimes. To cook out, and eat out, and lay out in the sun! (and to sleep in!) I am looking forward to playing in the pool and lazy river, laying on the beach and reading a good novel, playing some good games, and just laughing with family and friends. We get so "busy" with every day life, weeks can go by with out so much as a phone call or a visit, for a friendly catch up. I NEED that. I am READY for that! Take time out, this Fall break, and enjoy the season, enjoy your family and friends, enjoy the cooler weather. We certainly are!
