And just like that, it’s mid-November. I’m not sure where the months are going, I just know they’re gone before I realize they’ve started. It’s this time of year I start to feel unsettled and wonder if/when we might make a big change in our lives – a big move. Social feeds flood with photos of changing season and bright reds and yellows and I wonder about other places we might like to live. I want seasons!
But as I’m looking through these Fall photos, I feel happy. Such good memories here, it almost doesn’t matter our leaves are ugly and brown instead of warm golden tones. Almost.
Below: catching up on Lucy’s 52 Project. And a few other favorites from the month.
We call her mighty mouse. She pulled a cart around the patch and filled it with pumpkins. She plays with focus and strength, always ‘busy’. I love that about her.

We read nighttime books in our bed, Lucy asks to “get cozy” (which means under covers). I take her to her room after a few books (usually whatever is her favorite at the moment read two or three times over again) but sometimes I leave her sleeping in our bed. Keeping her close at night reminds me she’s still my baby. This photo feels like a peek to the future.
I think she’d love living on a farm.
So happy to be with her big cousins for the week. They were so sweet and fun to play with. Lu was comfortable right away and had us all cracking up with her silly catch phrases. A personal favorite this week, “HUG TIME!” she exclaims with big open arms. Yes, please.
She possibly ate her weight in sugar the week of Halloween. It may just end up her favorite holiday. Her first time trick-or-treating and she took to it right away (as we suspected she would). “Next House!” she’d shout to us. And “Happoween” (which is short for Happy Halloween, we appreciate her efficiency!)
