Decorating for Fall

Hi all...

Well, it's in the air here, Fall that is.  You can smell the cooler air and some are reporting a few trees in the Rockies have leaves slightly changing.

I'm writing this post today because I had a funny morning and wanted all of you to hear about it.

We are blessed to have our school within walking distance and that gives the kids and us moms time to catch up each morning (it's a real treat, I don't take for granted).  While collecting one of my sweets this morning, Gretchen, I was super excited to see her decorating for Fall!  Yes ladies (and Gents) she was decorating for Fall.  

Here's a glimpse into how our conversation went...which would be how I talk my sweet girlfriends!

Me: "What are you doing, is that an Autumn sign I see up?"

Gretchen:  "I'm so ready, so I'm decorating for Fall!"

Me: "Ya! (clapping enthusiastically), you've just given me the Green Light to decorate!"

Gretchen:  "Well, I'm also cleaning." As she passed by her Vacuum to collect her shoes because we need to get going.  

Me:  "Oh, let's not get crazy now...!" Waving one hand to dismiss that non-sense.

Me & Gretchen:  Both of us laughed out loud.

She's my silly friend, that laughs hard with me, has the same sense of humor, and we get each other.

This picture was taken by her, at an outside showing of "Twilight" we attended, 
with several other great girlfriends. 

So...as we exit Summer

and start thinking about Fall

Consider following my Autumn pinboard for inspiration.

consider this your Green Light to decorate your home for what "I" think is the most beloved season of all.
