Our first weekend in October.















Hello October,
You have been missed dearly. 
We welcomed October with cool temps. It is absolutely gorgeous out with all the autumn colors.
 We had a relaxing weekend. I took out a few autumn decor pieces and arranged them around our home. 
I've completely become obsessed with anything that smells like fall. I normally have my wax burners on, but lately I've been lighting a few candles early morning and late in the evening. Since the weather is cooler, I've been leaving the windows open. I normally open them in the afternoon. This past weekend the girls painted their little pumpkins. This is something we enjoy doing every year during the first weekend of October. 
I baked over the weekend. Pumpkin cookies and banana bread. I really need to use up the rest of our bananas. After all the baking was done, I enjoyed a slice of banana bread with a nice cup of coffee. 
We checked out a few books for the girls at the library and had an evening of reading books, board games and later a movie. The movie was mainly for my husband and I. We watched the movie, Me Before You.  I absolutely loved this movie. It was a nice, relaxing evening for both my husband and I.
Our weekend was wonderful. It was full of laughter, hugs, baking, movies, games and much more. I cherish these moments.
