It’s time to dig out those sweaters, slippers, hats and all that promises to keep us warm. We scurry around trying to get everything thing all set in our home. This is what is also know as batten down the hatches here in the north east. Oh and those last minute stroller rides, because nowadays everything seems to be last minute.
It can only mean one thing after all, winter is approaching and quickly. As much as i do not like winter mainly because of the harsh temperatures and the blustery snow that never fails to make it to my doorstep. I deal. All of the goodness that happens before that makes it more bearable.
The festivities. The family gatherings. The stories. The meals. The laughter. The conversations. The memories we make. It warms our souls. ..Keeping our lives balanced and good. I look forward to that part the most.
Saying goodbye to summer was hardest though. And my attachment had nothing to do with the weather. Olive turned 1. Brandon started 2nd grade and there was so much learning being had by both of our children. So many changes. It’s amazing both how much Olive is doing now and learning in just a short amount of time. And the stuff they are teaching and learning in second grade these days just blows me away! Children are so smart!!
A look back:
Olive’s 1’st Birthday.
Brandon’s 1’st day of Second grade. Mega confidence.
Sad those days are now just a memory but glad i got to capture it so we can look back now and again and remember it all.
