After Halloween ends, I love the quiet that settles in. This year I feel particularly cozy and nesty while we wait for baby to get here. But regardless of that special circumstance, I have always loved this part of the fall — where everything gets kind of soft and hazy and the vibrancy of summer is put away for a while. I love the simplicity of it all and how much joy everyone takes in those simple things. Hot drinks. Crunchy leaves. Warm socks. Baking. They’re all really simple, aren’t they? But for some reason we get to this part of the year and it all just feels so good to hibernate for a while. I’m thankful for that.
Also, this year I’m thankful for a new place to live. A baby on the way. A husband who is about to be a wonderful father. Comfort, ease, and peacefulness. Things that are pretty major but also very simple. What are you thankful for today? xoxo
