Autumn Has Arrived

photo taken in the Eastern Sierra - October 2010

I keep asking myself where Summer went. It came in so quick and blew away even quicker... But, alas, it's obvious that Autumn has finally arrived. Days are getting shorter, the air has that certain feel, and stores have all their Halloween merchandise out... along with all the Christmas stuff, but we won't get into that yet.
It feels like just yesterday we found out we were expecting baby #2 and now we are only three months away from his big debut into our lives. While I'm anxious to have that day arrive, I also want time to slow down just a little bit...

Lately I've been dreaming of scarves, sweaters, apple picking, pumpkin patch visits, cold weather soups, a house that smells like fresh baked cookies and breads, and putting pumpkin in everything!

I've been spending way too much time browsing through these two blogs lately... Both of them are getting me SO into the Autumn mood!

The Ardent Sparrow
Food + Words (I want to make EVERYTHING she posts on her blog)

While we had a great Summer, I'm looking forward to getting some projects started and turning that oven on and going crazy in the kitchen!


  1. So glad to see an update! I don't know if I'm ready for fall yet (holidays, dark at 5pm, and finals) and I don't think So Cal is either... it was 97º today. I do want some pumpkin bread though.

    That is a beautiful photo you posted. More please.

  2. I always enjoy Fall, but I agree - when daylight saving ends, it can be a bit of a bummer.
