I just took these photos today and was dying to put them to good use.
Off in the distance the sound of drums and trumpets sound. Tonight is Homecoming, a big event for such a small town.
...There's something about Homecoming and football games and marching bands that make me want to douse myself in Victoria's Secret Amber Romance perfume and slip on my old worn pair of Simple clogs....
I'm proud to report that the sheets are currently spinning away in the washing machine, fresh towels hang in the bathrooms, the new mums just received a refreshing afternoon beverage, and I'm blogging away. I won't even go on about all the papers I've checked and the lesson plans I've so carefully written.
Thankfully, I even managed to make some significant progress on the blanket I'm knitting little Ava for her birthday.
But, most importantly, I managed to sneak in an hour (right before "Meet the Teacher" night..ahem) to plant my mums and decorate the outside of 403 for autumn.

I couldn't be more pleased.
Autumn, you see, is finally here.
Plus, I'll never foret my dad impressing my brother and I by balancing an egg on its end. I thought that was pretty amazing, because, quite frankly, it was.
Don't go giving me any of that jibber-jabber about equinoxes. It was magic. Period.

From this day until forever
Just love me tenderly
And I'll give to you every part of me..."

One couldn't have ordered a more beautiful day. Sunny afternoons, cloudless skies and pleasant temperatures combined to create the most perfect scene for a wedding.
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Webb...such a lovely couple.
May your new life together be filled with all the wonderful blessings you so richly deserve. Cheers!

Oh, but the lovely blue sky... Today the color acts as my Prozac, putting me in the most wonderful of moods.
And, like icing on a cake, these lovelies were spotted in the backyard. I can almost hear the crunching and rustling...
