This corner is a catch all!
shoes, papers, laundry baskets, jackets, dog toys..
you name it, and it will easily find a home here.
Do you all have a space like that?
The chalkboard was in need of some fall love.
There are a few of you crazy talented chalkboard writers that I would like to invite over to work your magic on mine.. but since you probably don't feel like driving to Maryland just to makeover my chalkboard.. I had to do it myself.
I didn't wait to put to much in that space.. with one husband, two daughters and three dogs, a simple walk down the steps almost always turns into a stampede.
There is that orange and blue together again!
Did you see our little book basket?
With dog eared pages and tattered spines,
our favorite fall books have been well used.
We have had most of these books since Michelle was a little girl
and we've read them every single year.
Pumpkin soup is my girls favorite and is a sweet story about three friends,
a squirrel, a cat and a duck.. who have a fight and later make up.
The illustrations are the cutest!!!
Our New Neighbors is my very favorite Halloween book!!!!
I read this to Michelle when she was a toddler.
She used to love when I acted out the monster voices.
When Sally was little, Michelle and I would take turns reading verses to her.
And now.. The three of us take turns reading pages to each other.
I look forward to a book date this year,
In between Sally's high school studies and Michelle's busy schedule,
We will soften the lights, light up the pumpkins, nibble on some chocolate chip cookies and read our favorite Fall stories to each other.
I can't wait!
I will always find enchantment and joy in those little moments.
Have a Happy Sunday!!!!
Thanks you for visiting.
