Fall has fallen, once again. The air is crisp and my bones...they are a'achin'.

This is my favorite time of year. Work has slowed down just enough for me to take a deep breath and be thankful for all we have. Little Miss is thrilled b/c its finally cool enough for her to wear her new red boots that she purchased back in August. (Don't let her fool you though, she's already worn them. She sweat so much in them I had to air them out in the yard!)

Listening to Little Miss's daily ramblings from her school day is fascinating. Today, she came home with riveting tales about fire safety. She sat with me and filled out a fire safety information worksheet that she received from a firefighter, visiting her school. She then belted out to a "stop, drop, roll" tune that I wish I could've rocked out to when I was her age. She was also excited to inform me that she moved her "clippy" to purple today. (This is a big deal.) She was able to move her clippy up from green to blue, then on to purple because helped a classmate and then used her manners!!

Along with changing seasons and school schedules comes sniffles. Little Miss has had puffy eyes and a stuffy nose for the last few days. While it hasn't slowed her down much, by bedtime she can hardly hold her eyes open to read a book.

The homecoming parade Tristan and I rode in was the first big event in my 10 year high school reunion weekend. (Partially the reason I decided to test out the parade in the first place!) For a few months, I have toyed with the idea of going- but never could exactly pinpoint why I wanted to. In the day and age of social media, face to face reunions seem like a dying breed. Not to mention the small town most of us still live in...I run into more classmates at the Piggly Wiggly on any given day than at an actual reunion.

It took Little Miss and her puffy eyes to finalize my decision on going vs. not going. She wanted to snuggle with her mama...and that was all it took for me to forget all about the reunion.

I didn't feel like I missed out on a thing...I'm not much for talking about myself and my life anyway. I mean, isn't that why I have a blog? ;-)
