It’s arrived. No, not Christmas. Fall. The season I have been waiting for for almost a year. J. left for training and deployment in the fall of last year. I have always thought that I would feel "over the hump" of this deployment when Summer was over, and the chaos that Fall brings filled up my calendar once again.
Hence, the banner change. E. and I spent an afternoon this weekend counting and collecting (and dumping) acorns; it seemed like a fitting tribute to this milestone.
That was a good afternoon.

Hey, nice photo! I also love the one of you opening the door to the package from James. It tells the story well!
I’ve got his photo/soldier spotlight hanging up in my office.
See you later!
I love the new banner! The colors are perfect for the time of year, it’s my favorite as well. I was worried we would go from summer to rainy winter. I am eating up every minute of the fall breeze that is here for only a moment.
Your new banner is lovely. Happy Fall.
Love the new greeting. It’s beautiful. The only thing I would change? I would put those sweet little hands on it.
I love your new banner. I haven’t experienced FALL for a couple of yrs now and its my favorite season. It’s been getting a cooler here but I can’t wait to see all the colors changing and the leave falling.
Great pictures. I really miss the change of leaves in the fall. In Texas, the leaves are either green or brown from the heat!
Beautiful banner. Don’t you just love oak and maple trees in the fall? I miss them so much living here in evergreen country 🙁
My own childhood memories are filled with collecting acorns and ironing pretty colored leaves between sheets of wax paper!
Love you guys ((hugs))
