Anyone else get a sense of spring cleaning when Fall rolls around?
Maybe it's the copious amounts of stuff that we seem to
accumulate in the fall + winter months urging me to make space.
Or maybe it's the cooler weather finally lighting the
organization fire under my heat-loathing butt.
Whatever the reason is I had an overwhelming desire to
clean and organize the last couple days, and so that's exactly what I did.
Bob and I agree that we don't need every single piece of the
kids' clothes lying around just in case we decide to have another baby.
We have enough faith in the universe to provide for us
what we will need when we need it.
SO we purged all the old baby stuff!
But as Bob always says "nature abhors the vacuum"
which is a fancy way of saying "make a hole and it'll be filled."
Fortunately for us I think the crisp fall weather and a change in diet
we're trying Paleo now - surprise!
prompted that "hole" to be filled with fresh-from-the-farm produce!
After a trip to the grocery store and some homemade
breakfast casserole, paleo muffins and a crock pot meal were secured
all before my first cup of coffee I might add!
we spent the morning with our dear friends, the Klein's,
and their adorable daughter Niamh.
+ bonus baby in mama's belly! eeep!
oinking at pigs, maneuvering a hay maze, and laughing at Bob
as he rolled down the hill
clearly to show the kids what's up [wink]
See our pics from this time last year (at the same farm) here!
Then Bob lined the trunk with fresh squash, apples, pears and tomatoes.
Next adventure: learn how to can food!
I haven't felt pretty in a while, thank you Fall! xo
