Fall Mourning

Near 3rd St. and High St. in Bloomington

We are planning our fall trip and I can't believe how quickly it is coming up! I hope I don't sound like a whiny little child who has too many toys, but I am going to miss October! I didn't really think about it until recently, but every summer I begin longing forward to October - the orange sweaters, brown coats, Federweisser stands (early wine, sold in fall), crisp air, crunchy leaves, colorful trees...I could go on and on... Where am I going to be this fall? In HAWAII!! (I know, I know, poor baby, but let me be sad for a minute and then I'll keep my mouth shut)

Fall always brings back memories of camping in Horicon, WI and southern Indiana. Campfires and trails, marshmellows and raccoons. Those are memories I treasure and I am looking forward to creating similar ones with Blaise. Fall also brings football, and although I don't follow sports too much anymore, tailgate parties and the electricity in the air on Game Day are things not to be missed.

Hopefully September will bring an early Fall and November will be somewhat mild. And, of course we'll have a great Fall weekend in Baltimore celebrating Carrie and Ian's wedding!

Alan and I were talking and you can borrow our house for the month so you can enjoy the fall weather while we go to Hawaii for you. Blaise will love the Great Zoo Halloween trick or treating, going to Hilger's Farm to pick pumpkins and seeing the giant haystack pumpkin and we even have a firepit in the backyard, you can roast marshmallows to your hearts content. LOL! I agree, fall is my favorite time of year too!

P.S. We'll leave the kids at home with you, you don't mind right?

That actually sounds great - really looking forward to spending a fall at home one year! (just not this one, sorry ;) )
