Summer's Simple Things (a couple days late) - Kissing Summer Goodbye

Summer is drawing to a close.  The fall weather has arrived.  Sweaters are coming out of the drawers.  Sneakers are being chosen over sandals.  The first cold of the season is circulating our home.

We've had great fun with the monarchs again this year (read more about them here), although this was a slower year for them, or maybe just us.  Tuesday, after dance classes, we kissed the last of our lovely butterflies goodbye.

They will soon begin their long journey to a warmer climate for the winter.  Summer will go along with them. 

Fall is a time to prepare for winter.  We have begun this process already, but there is much, much left to do.  I'd like to log our winter preparations here on Tuesdays, as a sort of fall-ish continuation of Summer's Simple Things.  Not sure what to call it yet...

We will continue to enjoy the simple things of each season.  Taking it one day at a time.  And trying our best to enjoy each day as much as possible.

Let's give a big, huge thank you to Kim, over at The Inadvertent Farmer for her Summer's Simple Things series!!  We had a blast with it!!!  Thanks, Kim!!!!
