Dear Fall

Dear Fall,

I'm seriously in love with you. I'm loving that I don't sweat instantly when I walk out of my house in the morning. I'm loving that sweaters are slowly creeping back into my wardrobe. I'm loving getting out my fall decor and making our house feel cozy again.

Also, while we're chatting, Fall... I wanted you to be aware of all I have planned for us in the upcoming two months.

The sunflower farm and corn maze we have visited the past two years is a MUST for J and I. As you can see, we really love sunflowers.... especially J.

And of course, carving pumpkins in a must.... Perhaps we'll even get a little more adventurous this year in our designs. (Bengal tiger logo, anyone?!)

I'm also hoping I can convince J to do another fall photo shoot with me.... after all, it's now been 2 years since we had our engagement pictures done. I think we're due for an updated leaves-throwing-fight. ;)

I'm already looking forward to making THESE cookies again, as they were big hit last fall: Pumpkin Toffee Chip and Rolos!

And you better believe we have already set out in the perfect idea for Halloween costumes this year. However, that shall remain a secret for the time being.

Thanks for letting me fill you in, Fall. We're hanging out soon!
