Friday

I was surprised by the light at both ends of the day, yesterday. It's been ages since I've seen a sunrise; there was a bit of pink at the edge of the sky when I woke up. After I put the kids to bed I happened to look up while reading, and was astounded by the sunset that had suddenly appeared.

We attended a park playdate for Cal's kindergarten class - an opportunity for the kids to get to know each other a bit before school starts next week. He ignored everyone - even those he knew - and played with Abbott.

For dessert, we walked to our neighborhood ice cream parlor and I found myself thinking about it possibly being the last opportunity of the summer. This is the time of year for lasts, firsts.

What's going on in your world today?

Any big plans for the long weekend?

Happy Friday! xo

You make my heart sing, Lecia.

I'm working on new cake bunting designs and revelling in wearing sweaters and turning on the heater. I also spotted the first red leaves. My favorite time of year.

I just love watching your children grow.

I absolutely adore the picture of the boys reading! Love the perspective!

We're heading to my parents' home for the weekend this evening...just as soon as Cupcake and The Boy go home. Sean and I are really excited because we're planning on going to Watkins Mill to run both Saturday and Sunday mornings!
