Hello and happy Friday everyone! We thought that it would be fun (for us and hopefully for you too) to have a post each week that shows a bit more of the personal sides of our lives. It seemed the best way to do that and to help bridge the many miles between us would be to each capture an image during the week (subject completely unplanned) and then share it with each other and you all here each Friday.
Fall is definitely upon us here in NJ and although it's a sure sign that Winter is just around the corner I've actually been enjoying the crisp air, the rainbow of autumn colors all around, the sound of crushing leaves under my feet and watching Emma's face as she stares in wonder of it all. On the flip side, my poor hubby will soon be raking raking raking and raking! But enough about the weather! I'm SO glad this week is over, my little bean has been way crankier than usual. She has discovered how to shriek, scream, flap her arms and has been practicing all three at the same time. I'm hoping it's just a growth spurt thing and that it'll soon pass. For those of you who have seen Sex in the City 2, I've had a couple of Charlotte-in-the-pantry moments this week! Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend. I gotta go run and try to take a passport-friendly photo of little Ems. Oh yes, apparently infants are now required to have passports for intl travel. xo Marichelle
PS. I spotted these vines growing on my neighbor's wall and I just loved the golden heart leaves (it reminded me of something Ez would stop for and appreciate!)
It feels like I've been looking for signs of Fall here in our new home city (Tulsa, OK) since mid-summer (but can you blame me, it was about 120 degrees all summer long). Now that the Fall season is officially here I have to admit that the lack of colors in my neighborhood have been a letdown. The one good thing I can say about the patchy bits of color here and there is that I've really started to pay attention everywhere I go to any potential burst of color. And when I finally find it, it feels like a moment of magic created just for me. These pepper berries were one of the first vibrant things I discovered while out at one my daughter and my daily trips to the park, and even though they are incredibly sappy and and ooze all over the place once their stems have been cut, I couldn't resist bringing a little sprig home with me to enjoy.
My hunt for Fall is sure to continue this weekend, starting with a wilderness walk with my littlest sister and my daughter later today. We're going to look for acorns and pinecones so that we can make these adorable little mice. Aren't they so cute! Have a stupendous weekend however you spend it. xo Ez
