Hello, Autumn

It has been 9 months since my last post.
So, why the lapse in sharing?
Life has completely gotten in the way of my creative process.
Two toddlers keep us hopping.
I'm back in school (only a couple of classes, but it is proving to be a humbling experience thus far).
Andy is working midnights.
And... and... ok, I'm lazy.
After a long day, I don't even have the mental capacity to play Words with Friends with my husband, let alone try to be clever for you guys.
*But... I miss writing. I miss getting out all of the ramblings that are floating around in this head of mine.
I feel like it's been too long to do a recap of our lives (we'd be here all day), so I'm just going to start from today and move forward.
Today is Saturday. I'm in desperate need of a shower and an allergy intervention.
 I love Autumn.
LOVE it! 
Autumn brings beautiful colors, cooler weather, warm soup, cardigans, and apple cider. Pumpkin patches, apple picking, and glorious photo opportunities!
Autumn also brings (to my family, anyways) snotty noses, itchy-watery eyes, and sneezing fits.
But, I'll take it. I honestly feel it is a small price to pay for the happy that fills me up when I feel that classic chill in the air; that crisp chill that screams, "I'm here!".  
Enjoy the weather and mentally prepare yourself for an abundance of fall inspired slow cooker recipes (because that is the only kind of "cooking" I have time for). My Pinterest board is filled to the brim with delicious goodness... now, let's see if I can recreate them.
