For me, decorating for Autumn comes in the form of using nature to reflect the change in season. Pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, leaves...

Its hard to believe tomorrow is Halloween.....
We made this cute pair last year and dug them out of the attic again this year.

Its fun changing up the wrought iron planter for Fall...

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

This is the "Shed" alias, my stepson, Ryan....a fun guy with tons of talent, senior at Owasso High School and a all round good kid. Lucky me and his Dad! He has this thing for Sperry shoes. Seems like no matter where we go, he needs a new pair. I'm not one to talk ...a woman with a closet full of shoes. My theory is if you find a shoe you it in every color!

This past weekend, the Shed come to visit! I love him being around. Since my own children are grown, I had forgot the convenience of having someone who can drive around to run your errands. And he likes doing it! He good does that get? Its amazing, he does that boring run I hate, WalMart, the cleaners, picking up real estate signs, distruting brochures, just many of the mundane things that go with my job as a Realtor.  This past weekend he brought his senior project to make a scrapbook. I loved offering advice, sharing my scrapbook supplies and seeing this project come together. Here are some of the pages he finished. I think he did quite well... don't you think he should get an A? Besides he actually added his step Monster in it.

this one kept turning on me!

It's been a whirlwind this past few weeks and I have SO much to share but don't know where to
begin. ... between work being incredibly busy with real estate,
taking a vacation in August, then again in September, designing a new work website, and trying
to make some time with Dave...there is not enough hours in the day. I am going to share some of
my pics from my past vacations. Several of you have mentioned you wanted to see my pics.
Fall harvests of apples, pumpkins, and gourds take center stage along with turning leaves and
the promise of hot cider and simmering soups. What could be better? Nature in all it's glory,
inspiring us all to feel renewed and refreshed. Isn't it amazing?.
You can see touches of the beginning of fall in my pics of New Mexico and Colorado.

Here we are on the hiking trail just outside Pagosa Springs, CO.
What a beautiful day....the aspens were just starting to change to their
golden color for fall. I love Aspen trees.

We walked alongside a stream all the way to the top of the
mountain. There was a beautiful waterfall when we reached the top. Just to
stop and listen to the rustling of the leaves and the sound of the water.
It is pure tranquility.
