An Autumn Break

I remember summer coming to an end. I remember thinking a change will be good. Getting back to a schedule will be good. Structure, will be good.

Has it been good? I don't know because getting "back into the swing of things" is still too busy slapping me in the face.

Which is why Fall Break was so nice. A little time to breath and recognize that your kids have actually been in school for two-and-a-half months, even though it's only felt like two-and-a-half weeks.

I'm a gal who enjoys using the occassional "break" to catch up on life. Do a little "fall" cleaning, perhaps. Or maybe get a jump start on the holidays. Not this time. This time, my main prerogative was to veg.

And I--I mean--we, were victorious in this pursuit.

We got in our car and zoomed over to my parents house as quickly as we could. My parents house, for those of you who haven't been, is a like a magical cozy retreat. If I had to describe it with a feeling, it would be "pumpkin spice".

The next day we went to visit my Grandpa in Downey. A pefect way to spend a day if you ask me.

Saturday we headed back home but not without a couple of pit-stops--one, at Grandpa Phil's and the other at my dear friend Brittney's house (who just moved to Utah, wahoo!).  Another day well spent. 

Monday, we made our annual Fall visit to Cornbelly's. The weather stayed nice even though it had been raining that morning and the crowds remained totally managable. It was just all so very enjoyable. And exactly the sort of break I needed.

Now bring on the holidays!
