Last week, for our summer vacation we took the kids to the Outer Banks for a week. Seven days in one beach house with five adults and four kids four and under is a little bit of insanity, but we survived and had a good time while we were at it.

October unquestionably kicks off a season of celebrations, especially in my family where we have not only the holidays but six straight months of birthdays (seriously, Hudson is the only one in my immediate family outside of the range). The last week was particularly eventful with my birthday and Halloween leading off this holiday season.

It’s election day, and this is the first election we’ve had in the commonwealth of Virginia. It’s been a bit of a learning curve to figure out how things work around here, but fortunately we got registered when we moved and our polling place is at an elementary school in our own neighborhood.

Oh my gosh, please, anything to make them end.

Happy first day of fall! Historically, this is my favorite time of year–changing leaves, cooler weather, tasty food, and, most importantly, my birthday! In recent years, however, fall has unfortunately transformed into an unwelcome reminder of the upcoming cold and bitter winter, and for a while I lost quite a bit of the joy and excitement I originally had about it. However, I’ve decided that I don’t want my favorite season to be ruined for me anymore, so I’m on a mission to reclaim fall.

This is nuts

Have I mentioned how many trees we have in our yard? Apparently a ton of them are oak trees, because for the last few weeks, it has been raining acorns around our house.

Acorns

And I just swept the deck a few days ago.
