My Favorite Time of the Year...


Byron and I have been married over four years now. During the past four years, I have really appreciated Byron's loving self-reflection he has given me from time to time. How did I know so little about myself, I mean come on, it is well, ME! One of these funny moments happened recently. I've been becoming slightly panicky about the HOT and HUMID weather here in sunny North Carolina. (Did I mention it's been HOT and HUMID?) So, I've found myself dreaming of pumpkins and beautiful colored leaves, of carameled apples and apple pie (ala mode of course).:) I've even been checking out various stores for Halloween costumes, come one girl, get a grip! Anyway, in the midst of my dreaming, I said to Byron, "Did you know that fall is my favorite time of year?" He promptly started laughing and said, "Um, you have a lot of favorite times of the year." I looked at him quizically and he proceeded to give me some information about myself that apparently, I lacked. I guess with the onset of every new season, I say happily to Byron, "Did you know (fill in the blank) is my favorite time of the year?" I thought about that and it's true! I LOVE fall! I love football and tailgating and cooler weather and fall treats. I loved pumpkins and trick-or-treaters and costumes and parties. I love that it moves into Thanksgiving, which moves into what I think really is my favorite time of year...CHRISTMAS!!!! Which moves into New Years, which moves into the Super Bowl (I love any excuse to make and eat bean dip) which moves into March Madness (can't get enough baby) which moves into warmer weather which moves into the end of school which moves into summer and another favorite...the beach! So yes, my heart is filled with joy and happiness during many different times of the year. I count myself...lucky.:)

Here's a picture of a fall wreath I made for $6.67 after walking around JoAnn's for 2 hrs and made it in 5 min after getting home I was so excited. The count down to Sept. 1 is on, because that's when I've told myself I can put it on the door.:)

Very very cute wreath! You are so talented!! Did Conner get the wonderful luxury of accompaning you around Joanns for 2 hours!! (We both know Baylee would never make it!! Do you remember our wonderful walks with the continous background noise of screaming Baylee!!) Anyway I love the fall too and am so excited about it!!

Wow-- for less than $7, Good job! It's really cute. I need some of your inspiration for decorating. Maybe I need a trip to JoAnn's.... without kids....

Jami said...

Wow -- super impressed! Wish you would've let my boys and I accompany you to JoAnns and in creating such a wonderful wreath . . . well, then again, it probaby wouldn't have happened in that case. Maybe I'll just have to go with you next time.

Just so we're all on the same page, Byron was home with a napping Connor while I spent the 2 hours at JoAnn's. With Connor it would have been 2 minutes!
