Pumpkins have been put out…
I’ve got my witch hat ready..
All joking aside though, it takes the visuals that appeal to you and helps you hone your style into a home that is uniquely you. Just a pleasure to read and I possibly have multiple personalities… Or I’m just scattered, as I have been told. Still, a terrific home decor book.
I also have some of my favorite pics on the desk. Love this old sweet one of my guys.
The boys are growing so fast and much is happening…This fall especially with the high schooler. Being a junior means learning to drive, college visits, planning for tests, hard classes and the darn Homecoming or Coro (short for coronation) as it’s called here. I had a friend post something on Facebook on how much stress it is for girls – the drama of dances, etc. She remarked the boys just have to ask and then worry about the Homecoming game score.
It isn’t like that at all in my home. In fact, quite the opposite. I don’t know if it’s like this where you live, but here boys are expected to not only ask the girl they want, but to do it in a very dramatic and public fashion. At our school, it has been things like writing it on their chests, delivering flowers to class while asking, or in the middle of a football game or during lunch time in front of everyone!
It’s more than most husband’s did to ask their wives’ hands in marriage and is frankly a stupid and intimidating ritual. It scares the heck out of many boys who have a hard enough time getting the nerve up to just ask. Imagine also being the girl. What if you want to say no? How embarassing and harder in such a public forum. Frankly, I wish our school would do away with it. After trying this once as a Freshman, my son has just decided to opt out of the whole process. I’m not even addressing all the the stress about what group you are going to go with, where to have a fancy dinner, and also what parents are offering their beautiful and photo-worthy home to do the group photos at? It’s enough to make a lot of kids run for cover. Isn’t it hard enough being a teen in today’s world? Is it crazy like this elsewhere? I’d just like to know!
Aimee is one of the kindest people and in her hand is a darling baby kitten.
She fosters feral kittens who need to be with people and not in a shelter, so they make good pets.
This sweet baby is Tigger and he is alone. His brother didn’t make it and Tigger himself had to have a toe taken off. He walks with a bowlegged walk, but is doing well thanks to her care. Two other friends I know also foster pets. It’s such a nice thing to do. Is he not precious?
Wishing you all a lovely fall weekend and some sweater weather!
