October


Here we are right in the middle of October already. Our first autumn as parents, our first season of baby giggles + pumpkin spice everything. It's hard to believe that our little girl is going to dress up for her first Halloween in just a few short weeks. Each weekend we've marked items off of our Autumn Bucket List and we are simply grateful. Grateful for our little family, for our marriage, and that God blessed us with our Magnolia Caroline.


On Sunday we started our morning with pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls and then we took Magnolia and my mom to the Louisburg Cider Mill. The weather was a perfect sixty degrees with the fresh breeze smelling of cinnamon and apples. We listened to a live bluegrass band and drank hot apple cider and ate warm cider donuts. Magnolia danced on the table and clapped her little hands. And we managed to get home just in time to watch the football game and enjoy Oktoberfest beer.


I love dressing her up in fuzzy sweater tights and tutu dresses and I'm pretty darn happy to throw on a soft cardigan with a comfy pair of mules!



Last weekend we decorated our front porch for autumn with milo, white and pastel pumpkins, and the biggest mums I've ever seen. It feels warm & inviting and I'm so happy we took the time to spruce up our front porch for the coziest season of the year.


The old door & wreath were part of our wedding ceremony and we had saved them in our basement to use someday again. I think a touch of vintage looks good on fall decor.







Magnolia and I go to a weekly music class called Kindermusik and I do believe I enjoy it as much (maybe more) than her. I love to see her interacting with all the other little boys. Her class just happens to be ALL boys and we joke that one special boy is her boyfriend. The first few classes she sat close to me and was unusually quiet. By the third class she had warmed up to her friends and was talking and moving around with excitement and an adorable sense of comfort. When we are at home we are in our comfies, but when we go out I like to get her all dolled up!




I think we can start the countdown to Halloween now and all things SPOOKY. Our favorite book at the moment is Vampirina Ballerina, it's too cute! We just got it a few days ago and we've already read it about ten times.
