Welcome, Autumn!

We celebrated the autumnal equinox last night with friends: the gorgeous canyon with leaves turning; a bonfire for roasting marshmallows and making smores; a leaf crown craft for the autumn princesses and princes; and drinking warm drinks (hot apple cider, hot cocoa or beer, which isn’t warm but still warms the body!). There couldn’t have been a more perfect way to welcome the change in season.

And I really needed it; I have been in a funk lately, because we still do not know when or where we are moving. I guess I had been expecting to at least know something by now, so I think the physical changing of the season that I have been seeing around me has depressed me, as I thought we would be moving on and starting new by this time. But hanging out with dear friends last night as helped me realize that we are lucky to be spending more time here in Salt Lake. It will be a beautiful fall and we have more time to make more memories with our loved ones here!

And now begins the season of fall crafting and sweaters (eventually, it still tops 70/80 degrees here).

How have you welcomed in Fall?

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
