Walking back to the car after dropping my son off at school, I discovered this smile right in front of my feet. Apparently, fall is happy to see me – even if I’m not so happy to see it. Other than the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes (yummmm…). And eventually making home-made soups and stews when it’s a bit cooler (more yummmm…). And the first thunderstorm (which we already had – neato!). And the leaves changing colors (natural photo ops!). And picking the perfect pumpkin to carve (more photo ops and fun!). And Halloween (BIG FUN!). Okay, okay, I guess fall isn’t all bad. (But summer is still my favorite!)

How is your fall so far? Have you discovered any new smiles in your world lately?
