Key Pieces for your fall wardrobe

Fall is just around the corner.  The weather here is still very warm and I for one, am looking forward to fall.  I am quite tired of watering my garden... thinking now it is best to just go for survival of the fittest ;)

I love fall.  Now if I have to get out of my pajamas...I love fall clothes - the boots, scarves, sweaters, hoodies... I love fall food - squash, pumpkin, pumpkin pie tea... I could go on.  Let's just say I will be embracing fall when it arrives!

I came across this checklist (click on photo to be taken to source) and thought... oh good, I'm well on my way... except I don't see leggings there... I do love my leggings!





The next thing on my list is to learn how to tie a blanket scarf - mine just never look quite right!

Of course don't forget to complete your outfit by decking out your nails!







What about you?  Are you ready for fall?  What is your favorite go to fall wardrobe piece?

Moments in Time


And sometimes you do know....

We celebrated my grand daughters 2nd birthday yesterday.  A gorgeous day with lots of fun had by all.  I did get several pictures of my cutie pie... but this one is my favorite.

You see, my dad 'surprised' us with an unexpected heart attack back in July.  It was scary and we are lucky he is still with us.  A couple weeks later he had a triple bypass and a valve replacement.  He is still mending but making steady progress!  It is amazing what can be done medically and we are so thankful for it!

I love the joy in this photo.  My grand daughter who loves the new teddy she just received and my dad (her great grandpa) just because that little peanut is sitting on his lap >3  She has no idea how special this moment is, he does.... but one day she will.
