I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to say farewell to Summer. Although, I don’t think it’s ever been this humid while I’ve been ever so pregnant!

Today, was the 1st morning that I enjoyed a warm cappuccino over an iced late.

The 1st day we went without running the AC during the kids afternoon nap.

The 1st night I had to go back in the house to grab a sweatshirt for our family walk around the block and 1st time I’m wearing PJ pants! YAY!!!!

Miss Spicy helped me take out all the Fall decorations and ransform our fireplace mantel

I inherited this family of pumpkins that my Grandma Emde hand painted. Spicy was ecstatic when she realized there was 1 for each of us, “even the new baby!!!” Can you tell which one is her? Gma must’ve somehow known 😉

And Mr. Serious? What do you think about Fall being upon us?


I think he’s bummed that his popsicle-licking, shirtless, wagon-riding days are numbered…

I promise you’ll have just as much fun carving pumpkins, eating Halloween candy and puddle stomping…

Here’s to a few, cool months while my belly continues to expand and body heat continues to rise 😉

  1. I say that the Inspiration that comes from within is a mother, and a spouse full of LOVE. Love is a motivator to accomplishing many beautiful fruits. The surroundings you are constantly creating is a reflection of that GREAT LOVE from LOVING your Vocation. Yes, I do see that God has given you many talents and creating beautiful environment, beautiful children, a wonderful husband all are the results of your Great Love Marisa. I too now look forward to preparing for the Fall. Thank you for your sharing. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!Love, Mom

  2. Isn’t it amazing how the changing seasons can bring on changing moods and attitudes and outlooks. Whereas we all might have our favorite time of year, it is the “other” times of the year that allow us to expand our awareness and appreciation of the importance of change and adaptability in our lives. I used to just LIVE for the summer in my younger years. I now enjoy and relish each and every change and all the unexpected gifts that come forth. I so enjoy watching the kids react and respond to life’s changes.
