"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
It seems like our yard was filled with leaves almost overnight on this first day of autumn, so Elise and I thought we'd go out and do some raking so Jamie could mow the grass. She was very helpful, of course.
I also did a little bit of decorating on the porch, and Elise seems to really enjoy it! And a big thank you to my mom, who took me shopping for our deocrations as an early birthday present yesterday. She's going to be at a conference in San Diego over my actual birthday, and she knows how I love fall, so we had a great time yesterday celebrating in advance. Thanks, mom!!!
