Ready for fall…. and project runway (the nursery)

OK, totally random title, I know, but this is the end of the 2nd day at my sister’s and it’s been NUTS around here!~ My Mom, Chloe and I flew to Denver Thursday morning to start working on my very pregnant sister’s nursery and we have been going NON-STOP ever since!
 It’s been a lot of fun. I don’t usually get to do all these projects without a bunch of little kids running around, so I’ve been having a blast being overly focused on all of the 20 projects I’ve started so far. It’s 3 am….and I’m beat! Like I said, It’s a little like project runway around here, but for a room. 
I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been up to, but I haven’t even had time to take any after pictures yet.
So for now, I’ll just share some fall inspiration. I love the fall…..
Fall…….I can’t believe it’s almost here!
It’s my favorite season. 
It always has been…..
and it always will be.
It must be the colors….
they are so warm…
They make me want to light candles….
and wear scarves….
and drink hot lattes.
At the end of July, I always start to think, “there can’t be only one more month to summer! I never want it to end!”
…but by the end of August, I am always so ready for some fall weather. 
…and the smells, colors, and annual festivities. 
I know that fall doesn’t officially start until mid-September.
…but I officially start “my” fall the beginning of September. 
….so that gives me five more days. 
…Five more days until I can put up my fall wreath, and buy a pot of mums. 
…and I couldn’t be more ready!
I’m ready for hot instead of iced lattes.
…and to be greeted by pumpkins, mums, and leaves when I walk up to my front door. 
….and maybe a little rain and an umbrella. 
…and of course, sweaters, boots and scarves.
….and family, fall food, and laughter. 
Are you ready?
